do Kinetico water softeners need maintenance? Another key component of Kinetico water softeners is that they're engineered to provide you with pure, quality water without extensive or expensive maintenance. However, regular maintenance is still necessary to make sure your softener system is properly function.

People also ask, why does my Kinetico water taste salty?

Salty tasting water from a Kinetico water softener is caused by poor water flow during regeneration, leaving saltwater behind in the tank or from saltwater getting through improperly sealing valves within the Kinetico control valve.

How often do you change a Kinetico water filter?

A: Every 500 gallons or approximately once a year. The MACGUARD FILTER available on the Premier Kinetico R/O systems automatically measures water use and alerts you when it's necessary to change the system's filter cartridges. Eliminates guesswork.

How often should my Kinetico water softener regenerate?

How Often Should My Water Softener Regenerate? It is generally agreed upon that regular regenerations are the best, because they keep the resin bed active. This should be every two to three days, although highly efficient softeners may generate every day or even multiple times a day.

How does Kinetico system work?

Kinetico water softener systems contain resin beads that hold sodium ions. Once hard water passes through these resin beads inside your water softener, the resin beads hold onto the calcium and magnesium in exchange for sodium. The system then backwashes and flushes out both the hardness minerals and the salt solution.

What happens if my Kinetico water softener runs out of salt?

If your softener has run out of salt, replenish it with the correct salt and manually regenerate the Water Softener. Please allow 14 days before testing as it can this long to achieve a completely soft test result. If the water softener does have salt in it, check that it is not stuck to the sides of the cabinet.


Wade Robertson   |   Member since 2014  |  ✔ Verified

Is it bad to run a water softener without salt?

If you don't put salt in your water softener, the resin bed won't get "recharged", and it will stop softening the water. But your softener can be damaged in some circumstances. This happens if your water also contains iron, and the iron ions are left in contact with the ion exchange resin too long.
