Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

The Hard Water Genie residential water conditioner is the chemical-free salt-free permanent and healthy answer to your hard water problems. Until now, if you had hard water problems, you had to buy or rent a costly salt ion-exchange softener or replace your plumbing and water heater periodically. Finally there is a non-chemical way to treat the water in your home and get all the benefits and characteristics of soft water. It is the only system on the market to incorporate both RF radio sine wave technology and DIC electromagnetic technology in the same unit. This by far makes the Hard Water Genie the most affective unit of its kind. You could pay allot more but you cannot get a better salt free water conditioner. Prior existing scale is dissolved in the water. Scale is removed from your water heater and plumbing system thereby saving you energy and money. The United States Government reports that consumers save a minimum of 48% of their hot water heating energy dollars with the elimination of 3/8 in. or more of mineral scale build-up. A family of 4 can save up to $750.00 per year with the removal of this costly, pipe clogging mineral scale.

Customer Questions & Answers

Does this thing really work?

I've been researching this and seem to find more information that this device is Bogus than anything information that actually confirms it works. Where's the science? Anyone have experience with it? Seems odd that Home Depot would carry this item if it doesn't work...
Asked by: AMW
Yes and no. We use a similar device in industrial applications to protect equipment from hard water. It works for that. However, because it doesn't actually remove the calcium from the water, you will still get water spots, lime buildup, etc. So, I guess it depends on what you are looking for. Extending the life of your water heater - OK. eliminating/reducing water spots/buildup - not so much. One other benefit over salt systems - you can drink the water that it treated (no salt issues) and it won't hurt your plants if you use it for irrigation (salt treated water can kill plants).

How often do you change the filter? And what is the cost?

Asked by: LG
No filter associated with the product. I use a pre filter to reduce the iron content & change it 2 or 3 times a year.

How is this thing installed?

I am not clear how this works. How is this thing installed? Does it require a plumber? I have a crawl space where my water heater is located, my home was built in 2005.

Does this prevent the flakes/residue/egg-whitey stuff from developing in ice?

I have a fridge with a water filter and dispenser. The water that comes out of the dispenser is crystal clear. The ice that comes out of the dispenser has these flakes, or build up, and some of it is almost slimey in appearance, like egg whites. I melted a glass of ice cubes to confirm this. My online research tells me that when the ice is forming, the minerals in the water are being compressed, and the result is the above issue when it melts. Water softeners remove these minerals so this doesn't happen. Do water conditioners, like the Genie here, prevent this mineral compression from occurring?
Asked by: Peter
Nope. It doesn't take any mineral out, so mineral residue in ice will still be there. FYI - regular water softeners don't remove minerals, they just change which minerals are there i.e. it exchanges calcium for sodium, so the water still has mineral content. A salt based softener is probably not your solution either. Keep in mind that salt softened water tastes bad (I think most people agree) and has a high sodium content (problem for some people) so when we plumb houses, we usually run a non-softened line to the kitchen for drinking purposes (or only soften the hot water line). Also note that salt softened water will kill plants (don't water your yard with it). If you want crystal clear ice, you probably want a reverse osmosis water filter. that will actually remove minerals. Many people put one in the kitchen under the sink (we have installed many) with a small separate tap at the sink, and often run a line from the filter to the fridge.

I installed this 10 months ago as we wanted to get away from a salt-based water softener which we had for 15 years. Did a lot of research and came to the conclusion that how could a company stay in business for over 20 years if this thing really didn't work. Well it didn't do a thing for our water and in fact things are worse now. Getting hard water stains over all of our dishes and appliances. Scum and residue settling on toilet tanks and bowls. Have to scrub like heck to clean things and use vinegar to help. Will get rid of this thing and go back to a salt-based water softener. Just hopes it's not too late and didn't ruin my dish-washer, refrigerator, water heater and washing machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible!!! If I could give this 0 stars I would. We had a water softener for 4 years with no problems but decided to move to this method because we wanted more space and the convenience of no salt. Bad move! Ever since my dishes look terrible and have a crusty film all over them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good Hard to know for sure how well it will do the job as only installed 2 1/2 weeks ago. Replaced salt softener & it was allowed to run for another 10 days per instructions. Installation was easy. So far, so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mr I bought this unit. It does very good job. Allow it about 4 month to see completely work out depend on your water condition.
