The Softener Showdown

Kinetico vs. Culligan & The Other Companies

Home » The Softener Showdown: Culligan vs. Kinetico

Kinetico’s water softeners and backwashing reverse osmosis filters operate by the force of moving water. Kinetic energy… the flow and pressure of your water. Thus eliminating the need for any electrical power. No more problems with the failure of electrical components. As our competitors keep making “new technology” with their electric systems, the repair costs increase. How many of us have ever had any electrical product stop working?

Water treatment equipment is typically installed in the utility rooms of homes and businesses. These rooms also contain the water heater and the heating and cooling systems. These rooms build up a lot of moisture. You wouldn’t plug in your computer or laptop in this room and do your work, would you? You do that when installing a competitor’s system in your home. It’s not the amount of electricity these systems use but the problem associated with the electrical components of these systems.

Kinetico’s Dual Tank System: A Key Advantage

One of the standout features of Kinetico water softeners is their “on-demand” dual tank system. Unlike conventional water softeners that go offline during regeneration, Kinetico’s two-tank design ensures a continuous supply of clean, softened water. One tank is in service while the other regenerates, guaranteeing an uninterrupted flow of high-quality water.
