Fred Smith Applauds: Culligan Awarded Good Housekeeping Seal For The Fourth Consecutive Year

Since 1909, this distinction has been a recognized statement of the magazine’s renowned Consumers’ Policy, which states that if a product bearing the Seal proves to be defective within two years of purchase, Good Housekeeping will replace the product or refund the purchase price. All products receiving the Seal have been independently tested by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, which is the consumer product evaluation laboratory of Good Housekeeping.

Fred Smith’s Culligan products which have been tested by The Good Housekeeping Research Institute and are covered by The Good Housekeeping Seal include the Drinking Water Systems (Culligan Good Water Machine and Culligan Preferred Series) among others.

“We are pleased that so many of Culligan’s innovative solutions across all facets of our business continue to be recognized with this distinction from Good Housekeeping. Receiving this honor for four years in a row is a testament to our commitment to improve the lives of consumers through better water,” said Mark Seals, Culligan’s chief executive officer.

For more that 70 years, Culligan has been recognized as the world leading innovator and provider of filtration systems to improve general and drinking water in the home and workplace. Culligan offers an extensive water treatment product line.

Fred Smith’s President, Phil Kraus said, “the consistently superior products that Culligan offers are well suited for our NY clients who are among some of the most discriminating in the country. Fred Smith has worked on NY’s residential buildings’ water distribution systems for 100 years and we’ve earned our expertise. Couple this knowledge with Culligan’s superior products and you get a water purification service supreme.”
