Clean, soft water is a complete sensory experience. You'll be able to feel the softness, taste the difference and see new brightness in your clothing.
Advantages of Soft Water
The Water Quality Association summarizes the following as benefits of water treated with a water softener versus untreated hard water:
Silverware and glassware are cleaner and shinier.
Your hair and skin feels softer, cleaner, and smoother.
Elimination of soap curd greatly reduces the amount of housework to clean kitchens and bathrooms.
Restored rich lathering of soaps and shampoos, reduces the usage and cost of these products by 75%.
Natural chemical free soaps, laundering agents, and other natural household cleaners are more effective.
Fabrics are softer without hard minerals becoming trapped in them, last longer, and avoid dingy discoloration caused by hard water. Softening with a Hague Quality Water product will provide softer, brighter clothes and will extend their wearable life!
Soft water preserves the life of all water using appliances such as coffee makers, ice makers, dishwashers, and clothing washers. A water heater protected by a water softening system will also reduce the yearly energy cost of that appliance by 22-29%!
Water hardness, or hard water, refers to the amount of calcium and magnesium contained in water. This is a natural result of water as it moves through the water cycle. These minerals are not harmful when consumed through your drinking water, but can cause issues throughout your home.
Water with high levels of calcium and magnesium can clog pipes with mineral build-up left behind as the water flows through.
Hard water also reduces the ability of soap to lather, and the minerals form a sticky scum that prevents easy rinsing of anything being washed. This includes your hair, dishes, and glasses with water spots. They will all have a white chalky scale or residue left behind.
A water softener does not produce pure water, but it removes the calcium and magnesium in hard water by using resin beads in the “ion exchange process” and cleans itself periodically by the process of “regeneration”. Water softener systems are made up of a Media Tank, Brine Tank, and Control Valve. Smaller capacity models combine the media tank and brine tanks into one cabinet.
The Media Tank is where the water is treated and hard water is softened (calcium and magnesium are removed).
The Brine Tank is where a highly concentrated solution of salt is stored, or potassium may be used as a salt-free alternative, albeit more expensively.
The Control Valve is the device that regulates the flow of water into and out of the media and brine tanks during regeneration.
