Top 3 Water Softeners In San Antonio

Did you know that San Antonio is one of the top 10 hard water cities in the entire nation? The layers of limestone underneath our city introduce minerals into our water that make it “hard”. This hardness can affect everything from your appliances and pipes to your hair, skin and cooking! That’s why water softeners are found in many homes in the community.

Kinetico SA prides itself on providing soft water to the San Antonio area. If you’re considering investing in a water softener, you might be wondering which model is right for your home. Kinetico SA offers several water softeners to adapt to every home and every family. If you’re looking for the most efficient water softener for your home, you’re in the right place!

What Makes Kinetico Water Softeners Superior?

There are several reasons why Kinetico is one of the most recommended brands of water softeners in the country. Our mission to create the most efficient and effective water softeners has paved the way for amazing water filtration technology. Every single Kinetico SA water softener has three things in common.

Non-Electric Power

Most water softeners in the industry are powered by electricity. This is a drain on your energy consumption every month and makes your unit vulnerable to power surges. Kinetico SA water softeners are powered by the kinetic energy of moving water. With completely self-powered softening systems, we guarantee a greener and quieter water softening experience.

On-Demand Regeneration

One of the main components of a water softener is regeneration. Regeneration occurs when the ionized beads become full of minerals and need to be cleaned to soften water properly. Kinetico SA water softeners automatically recognize the need for regeneration and commence the process on their own. With self-sustaining technology, your job as a homeowner just got even easier!

Countercurrent Regeneration

During the regeneration process, brine is sent through the resin bed to clean out all the minerals collected from the hard water that passed through. Most water softeners regenerate cocurrent — the brine flow from top to bottom along the resin bed. Kinetico SA water softeners use countercurrent regeneration — the brine flows backward from the bottom to the top. This allows the water that exits the system to be filtered better.

Which Kinetico Water Softener Is Right For You?

Even though all Kinetico SA water softeners use these superior processes to soften water, there are some things that differentiate the models we offer. Every home is different. That’s why we make water softeners for all walks of life.

Be sure to contact Kinetico SA for a detailed evaluation of your home before choosing your water softener!

Kinetico Essential Series

This single-tank unit is the most effective softening system for basic water hardness. Its compact design is perfect for smaller homes that don’t necessarily need massive water regeneration but need dependable soft water. This model uses rapid regeneration to massively reduce the downtime during regeneration. This means that the single tank won’t limit your use of soft water for very long while the tank is regenerating.

Kinetico Premier Series

The Premier Series water softeners from Kinetico are some of the world’s most efficient systems — backed by the Water Quality Association (WQA). These units are usually marketed to homes with larger pipes or higher water demand. They use a mesh of resin compared to the standard resin beads, allowing them to adjust to a higher flow of water. The XP feature makes custom calibration to specific water quality conditions possible. If your home deals with challenging water quality or is on the higher end of water hardness in the city, one of these systems might be for you!

Jonathan Myers

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.

Kyle James

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!

Melissa

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.
