You want clean and soft water, without it being a chore to maintain. We get it. Cleaning filters and hauling large bags of salt every month is never fun.

Now picture two stylish, modern units that take up a small footprint, are simple to use and maintain, and require zero filters. The quiet as a mouse Hague WaterMax Water Cleaner and Softener is a home owners dream.

The WaterMax Water Cleaner and Softener is a whole house solution that first cleans the water, then softens. It’s a complete set up in one small, quiet, efficient system.

Flexible Customization For Specific Water Problems

The WaterMax® provides a unique water treatment solution because it's customizable to address specific water problems. With three separate compartments, the WaterMax media solutions can be tailored to your specific water quality and preferences.

Three Compartment Design For the Best Water Quality

Untreated tap water problems typically include bad taste, odor and discoloration or even rust. Even treated city water can be problematic, including elements like calcium, magnesium, chlorine, or lead.

Customizable Media Solutions

Every WaterMax is built with fine mesh resin and bacteriastat to prevent bacteria growth. The three compartment design allows the use of additional custom media options to address specific treatment needs. 

Customize Your Drinking Water Even More

Highest quality water • Most efficient • Best Warranty

The Hague WaterMax is the only choice for budget conscientious home owners who want quality water, with superior efficiency.

The Hague WaterMax® is a patented, comprehensive water treatment system; truly the right water cleaner for our age of conservation -- the world's most efficient water treatment system.

From Hague's computerized solid-state Systems Control to their exclusive directional flow screens, only the most advanced manufacturing processes and materials have been used to build WaterMax® providing years of trouble-free water treatment in your home.

More Resin, More Softening Capacity

Hague uses high-capacity fine mesh resin, vacuum VIBRAPACKED™ for maximum treatment of hardness in your water.

Regenerates On Demand, By Calendar Or By Exact Water Usage.

The flexibility of the solid-state Systems Control makes it possible. A low voltage 12 VAC transformer powers the Systems Control and once it is set, no other maintenance is required except the periodic addition of salt or salt substitute. The Systems Control even let’s you know if there’s a leak in your household plumbing fixtures.


Never Waste Salt or Water

Absolute brining is a Hague exclusive feature which adjusts the salt dosage to the exact amount required for each regeneration. It means that the WaterMax® never wastes salt or water.
