It also has high customer ratings for faucet filters at It is highly rated for its ease of use, durability and low price point.

Owners report that this filter improves the taste of tap water and reduces unpleasant odors.

The Culligan filter is WQA certified for reducing six tap water contaminants, including lead, chlorine, cysts, (giardia and cryptosporidium), atrazine (an herbicide), linden (an insecticide) and sediment.

Thus, it offers a basic level of carbon block water filtration for drinking and cooking.

Two key advantages of the Culligan faucet filter:

  1. The filters last twice as long as PUR and Brita, and cost a few dollars less.
  2. This filter is more durable than other faucet filters with fewer reported problems with leaking and breakage.

Up until recently, the main drawback, according to consumer reviews, was that you had to rely on a calendar to remember when to change the filter. However, the new models, such as the Culligan FM-100C has a filter life indicator.

Overall, the Culligan faucet system produces good tasting drinking water with a basic level of filtration at a budget price.

Warranty: This filter carries a 5-year limited warranty.

Filter replacement: The filter life is up to 200 gallons (2 to 4 months depending on usage and water conditions). Replacement filters sell for about $15.
