About Us

Kinetico is dedicated to helping the San Antonio community in the fight against hard water.

Kinetico Water Softeners

Kinetico San Antonio has engineered and manufactured innovative water softeners and drinking water systems to solve a variety of South Texas water problems for more than four decades. Kinetico continually develops and offers products and solutions to meet the diverse needs of San Antonio and the Hill Country. Hard water affects 85 percent of the United States, and the San Antonio area has exceptionally hard water. From general use to drinking purposes, no home should deal with the problems hard water can cause. Kinetico manufactures systems to improve water quality for all-purpose use, which will expand the life of your home’s plumbing and appliances, and we also offer reverse osmosis systems to provide clean drinking water for your household. Kinetico water softeners are not only made for municipally served water supply areas but also for private well owners. Our owners, Chris and Shay Knippa, are heavily involved in the local community, which is a passion that is passed on to our team members. We are dedicated to helping the community understand the issues of water safety and conservation on a global scale level. Chris regularly travels to Uganda to drill for clean drinking water in villages where they have none. In addition, Kinetico San Antonio has donated high-quality water systems to several local organizations in need.

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!


I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
