Kinetico vs the Competition
One key reason many people choose Kinetico water softeners is that they use about 70 percent less salt than competing brands. Investing in one means not having to pay for or lug around nearly as many bags of salt, something everyone appreciates.
But, many of our customers want to know why our softening systems don’t need much salt. If you’re curious, read on to learn about the three features of Kinetico water softeners that cut down on salt usage.
Regeneration Based on Real-Time Water Use
Traditional softening systems have computerized controls that are set to regenerate at specific times. They cannot soften water and regenerate at the same time, so the regeneration has to happen when no one is using water, like in the middle of the night.
The problem is, these types of softeners regenerate as scheduled, whether or not they actually need regeneration – and that results in burning through as much as 25 to 30 percent more salt than really necessary.
Kinetico softeners don’t regenerate on any schedule. The advanced engineering allows for regeneration at any time, without any effect on their softening capacity. As such, no salt is wasted with a Kinetico system.
Innovative Countercurrent Regeneration Process
The regeneration process for a traditional softening system starts at the top of the brine tank and moves downward. This is not an efficient approach – we’d compare it to cleaning a sink full of greasy pots and pans, then using the same dishwater to wash glassware.
How so? The concentration of hard water contaminants is highest at the top of the tank, so the top-down approach basically regenerates contaminated water with contaminated water.
Kinetico softeners feature counter current regeneration, starting at the bottom of the brine tank and working its way upward. This technology cuts unnecessary salt use by roughly 25 percent.
System Regeneration Process Uses Soft Water
Traditional water softeners use hard water in the regeneration process. And as you might expect, this is counterproductive – and wastes a great deal of salt.
Kinetico softening systems don’t operate this way. Instead, they regenerate with soft water, which makes a world of difference. In fact, this state-of-the-art design feature cuts down on salt usage by 20 percent.

Longevity of a Kinetico Softener
Traditional single-tank softening systems generally last about 10 years – at most. They can fail sooner, and that’s often the case in homes with extremely hard water.
A high-tech water softener, on the other hand, can easily remain in good working order for twice as long. And a system designed by Kinetico can continue to function for 30 years or more.
Water Softening System Maintenance
For the longest possible lifespan, softening systems require some regular care – and the amount of attention you’ll need to give your softener depends upon the type you install.
With a traditional model, you may have to run down to the basement to reset the electronic controls quite frequently. And as the computerized component is finicky, it’ll likely need to be replaced at some point – and the part doesn’t come cheap.
If you install a top-quality water softener, like those engineered by Kinetico, you won’t have much to maintain. There are no filters to change, and since the system doesn’t use electricity, it doesn’t have any electronic controls to set.
Kinetico RO Drinking Water vs Bottled Water
As water treatment specialists, we’re obviously in favor of the first approach. But, we have several good reasons for recommending home filtration over bottled water. Once you see how the two options for drinking water compare, you’ll understand our opinion.
Bottled water may not be any purer or safer than what flows through the taps. And because the companies that produce it aren’t required to issue annual quality reports, you really don’t know what contaminants it may contain.
With a filtration system, you can ensure every glass your family consumes is fresh, clean and safe. The filter will trap impurities, leaving you with the highest quality drinking water.
Sure, grabbing a bottle out of the fridge is easy. And, you can buy bottled water just about everywhere, which does make it convenient.
That said, having a drinking water filtration system at your home is even more convenient – getting a glass is as simple as turning on the faucet. Plus, you’ll have a safe supply for use in cooking. Using bottles for that purpose would be rather expensive…which brings us to our next point.
Bottled water isn’t very budget-friendly. Each bottle might only cost a dollar or two, but if you’re drinking as much as you should, that can add up to hundreds of dollars every month.
A home filtration system does require an upfront investment. But because it can produce great-tasting, high-quality drinking water for just pennies a gallon, the purchase will pay for itself rather quickly. And if you invest in the right system, like one from Kinetico, it can last for twenty years.
The environmental cost is one of the biggest downsides to bottled water. Packaging and transporting it uses a large amount of fossil fuels, and most bottles end up in landfills.
A drinking water filtration system is a far more eco-friendly option. By not throwing away countless plastic bottles every month, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint, especially if you choose an efficient system – like those made by Kinetico.

Hard water is hard on your wallet – and if you want to save money, installing a water softener is a smart plan.
Sure, a softening system comes with an upfront cost. However, due to the savings it provides, a softener quickly pays for itself. Great news, but how is that possible? Many of our customers have this question, so we decided to explain four ways a water softener benefit your budget.
Save Money on Soap and Detergent
Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, dish soap, dishwasher detergent – these products may not seem all that expensive. But when you have hard water, you need to use a large amount to achieve the desired results.
Install a softening system, and you can use far less soap and detergent. You won’t need to purchase replacement products as frequently, and over time, that will add up to significant savings.
Save Money on Clothes and Textiles
The minerals present in hard water are no friend to your clothes and household textiles. Quite the opposite – it actually makes everything look rather gray, dull and dingy. In addition, the material wears out faster. So, having hard water often means spending more money on clothing, sheets and towels.
After installing a water softener, you’ll notice a definite difference. Softening systems allow for more gentle washing, which extends fabric life. You won’t need to buy new clothes and textiles nearly as often, and that can save you a great deal of money.
Save Money on Monthly Energy Bills
Hard water creates scale buildup, reducing the amount of water that can flow through your pipes. This makes your washing machine, dishwasher and water heater work less efficiently and leads to higher energy costs.
With a softening system, your appliances will function as they should, and the efficient operation will result in decreased energy bills. And if you install a Kinetico water softener, you’ll see even greater savings, as our systems do not use any electricity.
Save Money on Household Repairs
The scale buildup we mentioned doesn’t just affect the efficiency of your appliances – it can also result in the need for repairs. And if your home has hard water, you may face problems with both your appliances and your plumbing.
While installing a water softener is no guarantee you’ll never need repairs, having a softening system does help ensure that your appliances and plumbing last as long as possible. And over time, you’ll enjoy lower maintenance costs.
For the biggest opportunity to save money, you need to choose the right water softener – like one made by Kinetico. We engineer our softening systems to provide 20 to 30 years of trouble-free operation, and we back our products with a 10-year warranty.
