HOW DO WATER SOFTENERS WORK?
Water softeners trade minerals for salt in what’s called an ion exchange. This exchange happens within a small resin tank filled with salt coated resin beads. As the water flows through the resin tank, the hard minerals trade places with the salt based on the reaction of their positive and negative charges.
Today there are multiple forms of water softening technology available, some of which use salt whereas others do not. Kinetico offers various types of water softener systems.
Reverse Osmosis (also known as RO) uses a different approach to remove a large majority of specific foreign substances within your water source. Just like its name suggests, RO reverses the process of osmosis, removing minerals and ions from your water.
This is done by pushing water under pressure through a semipermeable membrane, which allows the water to pass but not the impurities. This includes lead, detergents and soaps, nitrates, sulfates, chlorine, chlormamine, fluoride, pesticides, and more.
The impurities filtered from your water are flushed out, leaving the user with fresh, clean, crisp water!

Only Kinetico Water Softeners Combine the Following Features:
Non-Electric Operation – Kinetico Water Conditioners are powered by the kinetic energy of moving water – not electricity. There are no expensive electric timers or microprocessors to repair or replace which means they’re more efficient and reliable than any other systems.
Metered, Demand Regeneration – Kinetico systems measure your water use and regenerate only when necessary to save money and conserve water. This results in less waste and greater savings. When you go on vacation, so does your system!
Countercurrent Regeneration – A Kinetico Water Softener cleans itself more efficiently by reversing the flow of water through the system during regeneration. Trapped contaminants are easier to remove and are flushed from the system to prepare it for service.
Multi-Tank Design with Soft Water Rinse – Provides conditioned water, 24 hours a day, even during regeneration. When one tank is exhausted, the other is activated to continue softening your water. The exhausted tank is cleaned with conditioned water that extends the life of your system.
Customized Filtration Media – Systems are specified according to your water conditions. Softening and filtering media is contained in different tanks for optimum softening and filtering capabilities.

How does a water softener work?
Hard water contains calcium and magnesium. By passing your water through our system’s resin bed these elements are converted from hard ions to soft ions. Once these hard ions have built up in your resin bed, it must be cleaned. Salt is typically used for restoring the resin to a “clean” state so the exchange process can resume.
