Kinetico only offers its products through a network of independent dealers. Each local dealer belongs to a certain territory and constantly monitors local water contamination and follows the most recent municipal water quality reports. This allows Kinetico to adapt their water systems to satisfy customer’s current water needs.
In 1970, Kinetico was founded by two engineers who were looking to design a better water softener. It took years of trials and failures, but the two built the first twin tank, demand operated, non-electric water softener which revolutionized the water treatment industry. Kinetico pioneered the development of non-electric, fully automatic water treatment systems. In the years since, we've grown into a global company of independent Kinetico water experts and international distributors serving more than 100 countries. We offer complete water systems that deliver only the highest quality water for general use and drinking. We back every piece of our equipment with industry-leading warranties. Our approach reflects our deep commitment to preserving and conserving fresh water, one of our planet's most precious and endangered natural resources.
What Makes Your AquaKinetic Water Softener Different Is What Makes It Better
AquaKinetic water softeners are powered by the energy of moving water, not
electricity. So, there's nothing to plug in, no buttons to push, timers to set and
reset, or adjustments to make. You really don't need to do anything special to
operate your Kinetico water system—it runs itself, not you
Your AquaKinetic water softener has a built-in water meter which means it
operates "on demand" based on your actual water usage. With demand
operation, your AquaKinetic water softener can regenerate at any time of the day
or night and you'll still have plenty of soft water available. It regenerates when
necessary, so a simple flush of the toilet or run of the faucet can send your
AquaKinetic water softener into regeneration. Depending on your water usage,
your AquaKinetic water softener could regenerate more frequently (if you have a
house full of guests, for instance or you're on vacation). Demand operation
ensures maximum efficiency while providing you with a continuous supply of soft
water — even as your water usage changes.
The actual regeneration process of an AquaKinetic water softener is different
from other systems. AquaKinetic water softeners use a process called
countercurrent regeneration (instead of an old fashioned, 4-or 5-cycle
regeneration) which has long been recognized as the optimum process for
regenerating a resin bed. The AquaKinetic is able to effectively use this process
since our water systems regenerate with soft water.
How Your Water System Works
Hard water contains calcium and magnesium. Your AquaKinetic water softener
contains resin beads, which hold sodium ions. When hard water passes through
the resin beads (Fig. 1) inside an AquaKinetic water softener, the beads attract
and hold the calcium and magnesium ions in exchange for sodium. After this ion
exchange process, the water leaving your Kinetico water system is soft.
Once the resin bed is loaded with calcium and magnesium ions, it must be
cleansed (or regenerated) so that it can continue to soften water. The salt in your
salt storage tank mixes with water to wash the resin beads. The brine solution
loosens the hardness minerals which have built up on the resin beads; then the
system backwashes and flushes the hardness minerals and salt solution away.
Once this is complete, the resin beads hold sodium ions. The system is again
ready to exchange the sodium ions for more calcium and magnesium ions
Maintaining Your Water System
Your AquaKinetic water softener is engineered to provide you with quality water
without requiring extensive maintenance. However, some routine maintenance is
necessary to keep your system working properly.
Changing the Filter
Your AquaKinetic water softener uses an in-line filter to remove solid material
from the inlet water supply. Periodically, the filter cartridge will require
replacement. This should occur when the water pressure in the home begins to
gradually decrease.) Adding Regenerate (water softener salt or potassium chloride
Make sure your salt storage tank never runs out of regenerant. Refill regenerant
any time before water is visible in the brine drum or softener cabinet (on cabinet
models). Use Kinetico Water Softener Salt, available from most Kinetico dealers,
or another high-quality brand. Some salts contain foreign particles which can
cause problems with your system, so be sure to use a high-quality grade of salt,
processed especially for use in water softeners. If you choose to use potassium
chloride, contact your local authorized Kinetico dealer to find out about the
recommended adjustments to your system. Your Kinetico dealer can also
recommend or perform a schedule of periodic maintenance. DO NOT USE
ROCK SALT OR SOLAR SALT, as it often contains significant levels of dirt or
Why choose Kinetico
1. Twin-tank softener: Continued supply of soft water 24/7, 365 days a year
Kinetico offers a twin tank solution while our competitors only offer single tank softeners. A twin tank softener means you have a constant flow of soft water anytime you need it: truly 24/7, 365 days a year. There is no downtime waiting for the system to regenerate at all.
2. Reliable non-electric mechanism
All Kinetico systems are non-electric. It’s like having a reliable Swiss-watch mechanism working for you. This unique technology uses nothing but the power of moving water. The beauty of it is that it almost never breaks. Even though there are thousands of inexpensive automatic-electric watches on the market today, most of us still strive for the highest quality mechanical watches such as Rolex.
3. You are always safe with Kinetico in case of any disaster/emergency and power shortages
As residents of California, we live in an earthquake zone and once the power goes out the last thing you want is to end up without water, especially in a time of crisis. You can survive without electricity, but not without water. That’s why we’re offering you our non-electric Kinetico softener. Just like the Kinetico customers were in New York in 2012 when they were hit with hurricane Sandy; homes were flooded and power lines were damaged, leaving homes powerless and homeowners stranded. All other softeners were ruined, but only the Kinetico systems continued to supply homeowners with fresh filtered water. Kinetico softeners have a sealed structure that can even work under salty ocean water.
I am extremely happy I made this purchase of the K5 system from you! It has given me the optimum health I was looking for. My puppy thanks you too.
As I read how water systems across the country are allowing so much to get past their filtration. The governments, local up to the federal, set the maximum allowable standards of clean water is unacceptable.
I was made aware of pesticides and herbicides leaching into our ground water from crop growers just trying to feed America. Humanity eating foods that are laden with pesticides and herbicides causing all kinds of health problems. Obesity, type two diabetes, Alzheimer's are just to name a few. These toxins are not only in the water that grow our vegetables, it's IN the food too.
I have made a health-conscious decision to eat only organic foods. Yes, it does cost a little more, but how can we put a price on people? We are all worthy of a healthier life style in this day in age. Demand non-pesticide foods to all your grocery markets. This will begin the changes we all need for our children and our children's children. The best we can do now is wash all fruits and vegetables with highly filtered water. Don't cut into fruits until you wash it. Wash all veggies even if the package says"ready to eat".
Kinetico has people in mind to improve lives with their highly-developed water filtration systems. Kinetico is just NOT another company selling water filters. They have the science to back their products.
I am not an employee of Kinetico or being paid by Kinetico for this post.
I just want to be apart of the best thing we can do NOW for a healthier American, educate and raise awareness of this precious resource.
