Kinetico has packed the power and ease of non-electric operation into a single-tank water softener. Essential Series systems will handle basic 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.
Kinetico Essential Series Highlights
Saves Time and Money
Like other Kinetico products, Essential water softeners operate using water power, not electricity. So you can forget about clocks and timers. No more setting, adjusting or repairing, and no more headaches. It’s that simple.
Regeneration occurs in a fraction of the time it takes other softeners to come back into service.
AccuDial® For Optimum Efficiency
Specifically Designed For Your Home
With the patent-pending AccuDial feature, Kinetico 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.
Like other Kinetico water softeners, these systems monitor your water usage and regenerate (clean themselves) only when necessary.
