Many people considering the purchase of a water softener do not realize that the right water softener can actually save them money. While they may know all too well the reasons why hard water is objectionable, many people are surprised to learn just how costly having hard water can be. The soft water supplied by a Hague water softener actually helps save money by providing substantial savings for the household budget in many ways!
Soaps and Cleansers Perform Better
Many people do not realize that softened water requires significantly less detergent to do the same amount of laundry as hard water. Detergents actually mix better with softened water, so WaterMax owners find they are buying cleaning products less often. They also no longer need fabric softener, because treated water means softer feeling clothes, linens, and bedding. With hard water, the calcium minerals will cling to soaps to create a thick curd texture that works its way into your laundry. Once they dry, this curd makes clothing stiff and scratchy. Fabrics washed in soft water also tend to stay brighter and wear better without this soap scum build up.
Pure Water for Drinking and Food Preparation
Drinking water is extremely important for better health. But many people find their tap water too unappealing for drinking or preparing food, whether it’s due to hard water minerals or other issues like iron, sulfur, or chlorine added by the city. While bottled water is an option, purchasing drinking water is a significant expense, and the plastic bottle waste can really pile up. The WaterMax provides fresh, clean tasting water that is ready and available at any time, without the excess cost and trash. The WaterMax is specially designed to not only soften water, but also filter any other problems that can affect the taste in a single system.
Plumbing and Appliances Last Longer
In addition to the benefits WaterMax owners see and feel, they also notice an improvement in the performance of water using appliances and plumbing in the home. When hard water minerals are removed from the water, the problem of scale build-up is virtually eliminated. However, if left untreated, scale caused by hard water eventually restricts the flow of water through the plumbing, and can ultimately interfere with the performance of a water heater. This problem can increase home energy bills significantly. Ugly hard water stains on sinks and appliances are also no longer an issue, so you won’t need to replace them as frequently as you would with hard water.
