Water softening systems are a homeowner's best friend. After all, with soft water, you don't have to clean yellow stains from your clothes or scrub limescale buildup off the shower walls. We could go on and on about the benefits of soft water, but we realize that choosing a water softening system can seem difficult. There are so many different brands out there. How do you know which one is best for your home? Water softeners, like Kinetico's, offer distinct advantages that can help you save money in the long run and spend less time on maintenance.
In several key respects, Kinetico water softeners are unlike any other water softening system. Here's how:
Kinetico systems are non-electric, so there are fewer ways for your system to malfunction. We think that's worth noting because electrical issues are a common problem with other systems. Kinetico is the only non-electric water softeners currently on the market. There’s nothing to program or reset. And no electricity usage means a lower power bill each month. So, what powers a Kinetico water softener? The energy from moving water - kinetic energy.
Working Smarter, Not Harder
Other products will either under-use or over-use their soft water capacity resulting either in wasted salt and water or hard water. Not only is this less efficient, but it also wears components faster. Kinetico's twin softening tank systems work smarter, not harder – performing regeneration at the optimal time. They meter your water usage and regenerate only when necessary. That might be multiple times in one day when all the cousins are visiting, or it could be not at all while you’re gone on vacation. No waste.
Consistent Flow of Soft Water
Single tank softeners use hard water to clean themselves during regeneration and go into bypass, so soft water isn't available during the process. By alternating regeneration between tanks, Kinetico’s twin-tank design guarantees continuous soft water even during the regeneration process and it uses soft water to ensure maximum quality cleaning. This is one of the reasons why a Kinetico system lasts so much longer.
Everyone knows that most water softeners use salt, and replenishing that salt is a regular household maintenance chore. So, you might be shocked (and pleased) to learn that Kinetico water softeners use an average of 50 to 70% less salt than other systems. Think about that. For every 10 bags of salt you would have lugged from the store to home and from the basement to the water softener if you had an average system, you could need as few as three.
Some homeowners require more than just a water softener — like an iron filter — to get quality H20. But with water softeners like Kinetico's, you may not need any other water treatment equipment for soft, iron-free water.
You can expect a Kinetico water softener to last for 20-30 years as compared to most systems, which last anywhere from 2-12 years depending on their level of quality.
As you can see, some brands simply stand out when it comes to the world of water softeners. And Kinetico is one of them. Click here for more information about Kinetico products.
