It washes, it cleans, it's the best of machines! Purchase your hydromatic today!The hydromatic is an all-purpose cleaning machine, designed to save time by using Hydromancy Rune Magic to perform cleaning operations on the items placed inside. All but the simplest of variants include multiple settings for a variety of cleaning methods dependent upon the item and its handling requirements.
Mechanics & Inner Workings
The hydromatic relies upon Hydromancy to power its various cleaning settings. Items to be cleaned are placed inside, with optional trays to support more breakable items. The user then adds the appropriate soap and selects the preferred washing settings for their selected items. The machines contain an assortment of settings and are highly configurable to clean anything from clothing to dishes, although it is not recommended to wash different classifications of items at the same time. Most can be configured to wash any item that can fit inside, provided it can be washed safely with soap and water. More deluxe varieties also include dry cleaning options with advanced Anemancy settings. Most also include basic Pyromancy controls to allow for the use of heat when washing. Regular maintenance is important to ensure the machine is operating correctly. The runes directing each setting must be recharged at regular intervals, and the runes themselves checked against the manufacturer's specifications to catch and correct damage due to wear and tear. The original equipment manufacturers typically recommends owners return to their point of purchase for this maintenance, but in all but the fanciest models a handyman is more than capable of performing the necessary work.
Hydromatics are not particularly rare, but they can be expensive to purchase and maintain. They are most commonly found in communal settings where individuals can rent usage time or pool their funds together for purchase, although they are not uncommon in wealthier households.
