What about the equipment warranty for my water treatment system?

Equipment warranties are very important. Depending on the warranty duration, you could have to pay a lot of money for repairs or have them partially covered. While a unit might seem cheaper upfront, the potential repair costs that come with a short warranty—or having to replace the unit in just a few years—will make it far more expensive long-term. Also, while a warranty might look great on the surface, it’s true, not-so-great details will be revealed in the fine print. To avoid all these problems come to Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning. The Hague WaterMax® has a 25-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.

Water softener or water filter – what’s the difference?

Many customers are unsure whether to choose a water softener or water filter for their homes. Both are methods of water treatment, but give you very different results. Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning ensures you are informed about and understand your water treatment options. We’ll give you the facts to make the correct water treatment decisions. Water softener vs. Water filter – and if you determine you would like to get a water softener or water filter along Colorado’s Front Range call 888-741-1711 or local 303-728-4899! The first step is a water test performed by one of our water specialists to identify contaminants and other problems in your water. This will help us to prescribe the right water treatment options. We provide a free water analysis by appointment, just call 888-741-1711 or local 303-728-4899. Water Softeners Water softeners are used in homes that have hard water. The addition of softeners reduce the negative impact of hard water, such as scale buildup in pipes and appliances, water spots on dishes, excessive soap use, and reduced energy efficiency. Using ion exchange technology, hardness-causing minerals are switched out with sodium ions, eliminating irritating hard water problems. Water softeners can also remove iron and certain metals (e.g., lead, radium). Filters remove particulates and organics, but will not remove hardness. So, if you are deciding between a water softener or water filter and your problem is hard water, heavy metals or iron you need a water softener! Water Filters Filters remove undesirable particles from your water, such as sediment or iron. Essentially, water passes through a filter, which catches these harmful particles. So, if you’re choosing between a water softener or a water filter and your problem relates to particulate matter, a water filter may be the best option. Often water filters are paired with water softeners or water conditioners to ensure that particulate matter does not foul the ion exchange resin. The Hague WaterMax® is one of few such systems with an integrated filter eliminating an extra piece of maintenance-requiring equipment necessary for other manufacturers’ systems to work properly. The WaterMax® functions to both filter your water and soften it, so you’ll have everything you need in one piece of equipment. Plus, it’s easy to use and tracks your water consumption to help ensure you always have enough clean water when you need it. Get more details at 888-741-1711 or local 303-728-4899!

How can I encourage my family to stay hydrated?

Here are some tips to help you get serious about water while keeping your hydration habits fresh at the same time: Pour the water into an attractive glass or easy-to-use water bottle. Add ice or chill your water. Drink moderate-size portions spread over the course of a day, rather than trying to drink it all at one time. Make drinking water a habit – drinking water at the same time each day will make it much easier to remember. Make water more available – carry a BPA-free bottle with you at work or when you’re going to be away from home for long periods of time. And make sure your drinking water is of the best quality and purity you can get.  We can’t help you drink the water, but Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning can make sure you get best quality water!  Call us at 888-741-1711 or local 303-728-4899.  Better Water For Better Living!

Hard Water vs. Soft Water

Hard water contains a large amount of dissolved minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. This is what causes dry skin, brittle hair, spots on your dishes, makes your laundry dull and promotes soap scum and scale buildup. Not only that, hard water clogs your pipes – not good for your plumbing system! Hardness also makes your water heater work harder, costing you more money to heat your water and reducing the life of your water heater (as well as your dishwasher and washing machine.) Many people decide to use water softening equipment to eliminate these issues. Soft water doesn’t contain these minerals, so the spotting, the scum and scale, the damage to pipes, the excessive use of (to name just a few): soaps/shampoo/conditioner/lotion/detergents/drink mixes, as well as dry itchy skin and brittle hair become problems of the past!

How much soap should I use with soft water?

Will a water softener make much of a difference for you? Absolutely—you’ll actually be able to see the difference! Not only will you need to use less soap (laundry detergent, dish soap, shampoos, etc.), but you will see a remarkable difference in the amount suds and the clarity of the water softened water provides. Even a minimal level of hardness can have a significant impact on increased soap consumption (and other things that have to dissolve in your water.) If you are dealing with hard water in your home, it might be causing you many other problems—some obvious, others not so much. Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning installs water conditioners along Colorado’s Front Range to eliminate all the problems hard water can cause.

Should I use soft water in my humidifier?

You certainly can! Soft water actually makes humidifier cleaning easier. When hard water evaporates, a hard scale forms that normally requires some drastic removal techniques. But when soft water is used, the residue is commonly called “soft” and can usually be easily removed. Learn more about humidifier cleaning, and then call Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning! Cleaning a Humidifier 101 As we said, humidifier cleaning is much easier when you have soft water. Hard water contains a lot of hardness-causing minerals which can coat your pipes, leave spots on your dishes, and make cleaning a humidifier difficult! Remember, softening water does not reduce the total amount of minerals present; ion exchange softening switches the calcium and magnesium hardness-causing minerals with sodium minerals. The most common humidifier in homes has an open pan, a small tube connected to a water source, and a float valve. When water evaporates, the float valve opens to permit more water to flow into the pan. Eventually this type of unit fills with minerals deposited by the water. Using soft water will keep the mineral buildup down and the humidifier functioning properly. All you need to do when cleaning buildup off of a humidifier using soft water is flush the unit and then go over it with a soft brush. If you’d like to disinfect the unit, check your manual for instructions. It’s important to follow the directions provided for humidifier maintenance as you will probably be using bleach and you don’t want to harm the unit or make anyone sick. How to Make Humidifier Cleaning Easier Like we said, soft water makes humidifier cleaning simple. The Hague WaterMax water treatment system can both soften your water and purify it. It’s easy to use and has an absolute brining system to ensure you never waste salt or water during regeneration. Plus, you can set it to regenerate on your schedule, whether that’s by calendar, by consumption, or on-demand. Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning makes getting soft water easy. Contact Us to Get Your Water Treatment System Humidifiers are a great addition to any home, particularly in our dry climate. But you might avoid them if you’re worried about frustrating humidifier maintenance. Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning makes owning (and cleaning) a humidifier a stress-free experience. Give us a call to get your Hague WaterMax water treatment system so you can see the difference soft water will make in your home. You won’t have to deal with buildup in your pipes, dull clothing, spots on your dishes, or any other hard water problems any longer. Contact us today at 888-741-1711 or local 303-728-4899.

Is soft water safe to use for lawn maintenance?

No, you should not use soft water for lawn maintenance. Living with soft water requires some small changes when it comes to normal household tasks, but you’ll probably find these changes are worth it since you don’t have to deal with hard water any longer! Learn more about living with a water conditioner along Colorado’s Front Range and give Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning a call to order yours! Toll free 888-741-1711 or local 303-728-4899. Water Conditioners & Lawn Maintenance For outside use on lawns or gardens, using softened water is wasteful. Depending on how much salt you need to use to reduce the mineral content of your water, the sodium content after softening may be great enough to retard plant growth and harm grass. This is especially true in climates where rainfall is scarce. Areas that receive regular rain are not as sensitive to sodium accumulation because the rainfall alleviates the sodium from the ground. Ask the dealer who is installing your water conditioner about a bypass for lawn and garden faucets as well as a faucet for untreated water. Water Conditioners & Soap Having a hard water conditioner also affects how you clean. Soft water makes a small amount of soap have the same cleaning effect as a large amount, so we suggest you start by using one quarter of the product recommendation and go from there. This includes dish washing liquid as well as shampoo and conditioner. You don’t want to waste soap or have to spend a long time trying to wash it away! Water Conditioners & Humidifiers If you have a humidifier, using conditioned water makes cleaning your unit much easier! Hard water creates mineral buildup on appliances like humidifiers that can make them difficult to clean. With soft water, cleaning your humidifier is much simpler. Usually all it takes is either flushing out the unit or using a soft brush to remove any minor buildup. So you can avoid scrubbing for hours just to get rid of buildup by using a water conditioner – what’s not to like? Water Conditioners & Your Bathroom Can’t stand that grimy buildup on your shower curtain? Using a hard water conditioner will help to eliminate it! Soft water doesn’t contain the hardness-causing minerals that are present in hard water, so you don’t get that irritating buildup in your shower. This makes cleaning much easier! Instead of spending hours scrubbing the tub and shower curtain, just a little cleaning power could be all it takes! Get a Water Conditioner Along The Front Range If you’re looking for a water conditioner along Colorado’s Front Range, call Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning. We carry the Hague WaterMax water treatment system which functions as a water conditioner as well as a purifier. It can be set to regenerate based on date, consumption, or on-demand.

What are point-of-use (POU) and point-of-entry (POE)?

If you are trying to improve your home’s water quality, you may have heard the terms point-of-use (POU) and point-of-entry (POE). The distinction between the two is important, as they are very different products. Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning offers both POU and POE options for water treatment along Colorado’s Front Range. We can help you decide whether a POU or POE water treatment system best meets your needs. POU Water Treatment Products Point-of-use (POU) water filtration products treat only the water intended for direct consumption, e.g., water coming straight from the tap–typically the water you drink and cook with. Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning carries Water Quality Association Gold Seal Certified Reverse Osmosis drinking water purification systems. Reverse osmosis is “Final Barrier” technology–the last step of purification to prevent the ingestion of contaminants. Our systems fit conveniently beneath your sink with a spigot at the counter-top. We can also hook this 4-stage reverse osmosis system up to your ice maker or water dispensing refrigerator. Hague’s POU reverse osmosis systems come with the same 25-year manufacturer’s limited warranty as our WaterMax® line. POE Water Treatment Products Point-of-entry (POE) products are typically installed where your water first enters your home, treating it before it moves through your pipes. The Hague WaterMax® comprehensive water treatment system is a POE system. The Hague WaterMax® can be customized to address your specific water quality concerns. It’s easy to use-almost maintenance free–and comes with a 25-year manufacturer’s limited warranty. There is a built-in sediment filter to reduce solids in your water. The WaterMax® is tremendously efficient and uses a patented Absolute Brining™ system that ensures you never waste salt or water during regeneration–the WaterMax® will use only the amount of salt necessary to regenerate the resin bed. Speaking of regeneration – the WaterMax® regenerates in as little as 12 minutes, using as few as 14 gallons of water! Plus, you have complete control over your regeneration schedule.
