Details on ‘The Difference in Water Quality’

[Jordan] San Diego has notoriously hard water but the good news is you don’t have to live with it so today I’m here with Bert from Hague Quality Water and we’re going to show the difference between treated water and our regular tap water here at the station and see how it affects how much product we need so thanks for showing this to me today

[Bert] thanks Jordan. this is a good illustration to show you the effects that hard water have on all your pipes plumbing in Frick’s yours so in this flask we have some Hague quality water high quality water this we have some raw tap water that we got right here at the studio I’m just going to put some drops of soap in here that is just plain ordinary soap no additives chemicals white nurse brightener is just plain ordinary biodegradable soap

[Jordan] okay so just as if I’m doing the dishes or I’m in the shower or doing laundry this is what this is gonna demonstrate this is gonna be like doing laundry so each drop that I put in will represent a cup of soap a box of soap or a dollars worth of soap just as a comparison oh I like the financial aspect let’s see how much money I might save

[Bert] right so we’ll put 5 drops we’ll do everything a duplicate we’ll put 5 drops in each flask 1 2 3 4 5 ok 1 2 3 4 5 and now we’re going to do some laundry here so we’ll put the tight top on very tightly why don’t you take this one that’s the height see you as to work harder and we want to get the same amount of suds in each washing machine and see how that works out

[Jordan] I see what’s happening but look at the difference so if you take a look at that you can see we got a nice rich head of suds here with just five cups boxes or dollars worth of soap right that’s what I expect to see when I’m doing laundry right and so you can see the soap has disappeared it’s been drawn back into the water by the hard water rock and debris now if we want to get the same amount of suds in this washing machine as this one we have to add more soap right

[Bert] right so how much more soap do we think it’s going to take well let’s try 20 drops 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 okay let’s see if I can make the same amount of subs here and this is equated to how much money you’re gonna save and I still don’t have blood so really this treated water the water filtration system from Hague is actually going to end up paying for itself with all the savings that you’re gonna use in how much less soap

[Jordan] so just quickly tell me how much less product should I be using once I have filtered water

[Bert] the generalists thumb is you can cut the amount of soap and cleaning products used by 75% or more

[Jordan] Wow thank you so much improve the quality of your water with a water filtration system today it will pay for itself in just a matter of years Hague quality water to get started at 619-232-5363
