Water Softeners

How a water softener works.

Hard water is softened by removing the calcium and magnesium it contains. When hard water passes through the softening system’s resin bed, it exchanges the hard ions in the water for soft ones, so only softened water passes through to your home.

Once the resin bed fills up with hardness ions, it must be cleaned. Salt is typically used in the regeneration (cleaning) process and restores the resin to a “clean” state so the ion exchange process can begin again.


product-water-softener2The Kinetico Premier Series water softener features the some of the highest technological advances in water softening systems. The Kinetico Premier Series operates without electricity and is designed to handle the very toughest water challenges. The simple mechanics of the Kinetico Premier Series water softener provides more reliable results without the complications that computers and electrical devices can cause. The absence of these delicate electrical parts also eliminates the need for the repairs and maintenance common to these components.

The Kinetico Premier Series water softener features the patent-pending AccuDial™ system. This feature allows for greater precision in adjusting the water softener to the specific water condition of your home. The ability to calibrate the system to your specific water quality allows for greater operating efficiency and lower operational costs.

The homes of today often have demanding water needs and larger plumbing systems than the homes of the past. The Kinetico Premier Series water softener will provide your home with a generous water flow without compromising the water softness. This water softener features a two-tank system that ensures a constant supply of softened water for your household needs, even during the cleaning process.

Our Premier Series water softener can handle both city and well water. We also offer models that will remove iron, chlorine or particulate matter during the softening process. Call us today to schedule an appointment with one of our technicians and experience the best softened water you ever had.


product_signature_seriesOur Signature Series water softeners are designed after our high-efficiency, double-tank, non-electric system that has met water needs around the world for decades. Like the Premier Series, the Signature Series water softeners operate by kinetic energy and are capable of removing iron from your water during the softening process. Because this water softener operates without electricity, it is an economical option for many households in the Hollister, Salinas and Monterey areas.

One of the unique qualities of the Signature Series water softener is that it gauges the amount of water you use each day and regenerates (cleans) itself accordingly. This gauging system prevents the waste of salt and water for unnecessary cleaning, saving you money and time.

The twin-tank system eliminates the risk of running out of water during the regeneration process. While one tank is regenerating or on standby, the other tank is always available to provide you with the softened water that you need. The twin-tank design also allows the system to regenerate with soft water, a benefit that extends the life of your system.

Our systems are designed to provide you with years of soft, iron-free water. For more information regarding the Signature Series water softening systems, contact your Kinetico Water professional today.


product_essential_seriesAs with our other water softeners, the Kinetico Essential Series water softener operates by kinetic energy instead of electricity. There are no clocks, timers or computers to set or manage, eliminating the need for time-consuming maintenance or costly repairs.

The Essential Series is designed to handle the basic water softening needs. As with all other Kinetico systems, the Essential Series regenerates only when necessary. The Essential Series will monitor your water usage and will adjust the cleaning schedule accordingly, saving both time and money. The Essential Series water softener regenerates itself in a mere fraction of the time required by the competition, drastically decreasing the wait time for soft water during the cleaning process.
