Exchange Tank Offer

Soft water for only

$9.95 / month

and free installation.

The real deal.

Free installation means no sprinkler bypass, you will have to manually bypass the exchange tank to water your lawn. Every time.

Once your introductory offer is over (3 months usually) you will pay $22 per month, or more. On average in this area a family of 4 is likely to spend $54 + per month based on your house hold size and water hardness.

$54 per month over 20 years is $13,000!

How many automatic softeners can you get for $13,000?

This is true assuming the price of the service never goes up for the next 20 years. Is that realistic? Of course not.

When the price of gasoline goes up so does the cost of the exchange tank service.

Hague Quality Water does not promote exchange tanks because of the cost and inefficiency.

Check out the Watermax.

Watermax 63BEQ & Portable Exchange Tanks

Let's Start with a History LessonCoolerator

Exchange tanks date back to beginning of water softening. Before the technology was available to create an automatic regenerating valve they had to drive around and switch out softener tanks.

Just as the Icebox and ice delivery service became obsolete with the invention of the household refrigerator.

Self regenerating water softeners have made exchange tanks obsolete.

If they are obsolete why are companies still renting them?

Reoccurring revenue.

Exchange Tanks are the most inefficient, expensive way to soften water, but what a great business model

Comparison tables are great right?

Assuming this didn't clear everything up, why don't you schedule an in home presentation? We'll show what your options are, how they work, and you can even wash your hands with them.

There is no cost or obligation, you have nothing to loose.

Treatment Process

Media, filters and technology used in the treatment process.

 

Regenerates

Both systems need to be cleaned with a brine solution. When the system exceeds it's capacity the water will go hard.

 

Consistent Quality

The Watermax produces consistent quality because the system automatically cleans (regenerates) when necessary.


Exchange Tanks run out of capacity and do not regenerate. When the tank driver comes and replaces the tank, it is hauled off site to be regenerated.


There is no way to have consistent quality in a exchange tank system.

 

Chlorine Removal

100% Total chlorine is removed.

 

Chemical Reduction

Chemicals are being reduced.

 

Softening

Calcium, magnesium and iron are removed from the water

 

Rent Equipment

You can rent either a Watermax or Exchange Tank.

 

Own Equipment

You can own a Watermax, but you can never own a Exchange Tank. It is simply a service you pay for forever.

 

Cost over 25 Years

Compare the total cost of ownership over 25 years, compared to renting an Exchange Tank for 25 years.

 

Maintenance Cost

Annual or reoccurring maintenance costs.

 

Rental maintenance cost is 100%.
