Kinetico Essential Series®

Performance and value for basic water problems and applications.

Kinetico has packed the power and ease of non-electric operation into single-tank water softener. Essential Series systems will handle basic, uncomplicated water conditions without the need for a timer, clock or computer. Thanks to its sleek, compact design, it's the perfect solution where a more robust system isn't really necessary but reliability is.

Saves Time and Money

Non-Electric Operation

Our hands-off non-electric systems meter water usage with watch-like precision and regenerate only when necessary, resulting in less waste and greater savings. No computers or timers to set, adjust or break. No extra strain on your electric bill either

Rapid Regeneration

Our rapid regeneration occurs in a fraction of the time it takes other softeners to come back into service.

Hassle-Free, Reliable Operation

Specifically Designed For Your Home

With the patent-pending AccuDial feature, Essential Series models are calibrated to function with fine-tuned efficiency. It’s like having a water softener that’s custom-designed specifically for your home – without the custom price.

On-Demand Regeneration

Eliminates the guesswork of timers and the waste of water, salt and electricity inherent with scheduled operation.
