Soft Water = Less Detergent

July 12, 2012

Saving Money With Soft Water

One of the benefits of having a Kinetico San Antonio water softener in your home is you don’t need to use as much soap, both in the washing machine and dishwasher.

According to the Water Quality Association, having soft water in a home can reduce their detergent use by as much as 50 percent.

The WQA cited studies that found washing clothes with half the typical usage of detergent and soft, cold water removed stains just as well or better than a full dose of detergent and hard, hot water. (There’s also an energy savings there, since cold water doesn’t require your water heater to kick in.)

As for the dishwasher, studies have shown areas with very hard water (like San Antonio) can get the same results with half the amount of soap and soft water.

So enjoy that Kinetico San Antonio system in your home, and enjoy the savings, as well!

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.
