Your questions answered

What maintenance does it require?

Adding salt to your machine is the only maintenance you’ll have to do. You’ll see the salt level gradually go down – when it’s at a very low level, it’s time to refill.

How much salt will I use?

It depends on how much water you use, but on average we recommend one block per person, per month.

How much does salt cost?

We recommend that you use block salt which can be purchased from WeSofeners. They come in handy carry bags which are easy to handle and store. Typically, prices are around £5.50 depending on the number of bags purchased.

Is a water softener noisy?

Premier water softeners have ‘QuietDrive’ technology which means they operate at low noise levels.

Will there be a pressure drop in the flow of water?

It should not impact on the flow of water unless you have every tap in the house running at once. Then there may be a marginal drop in pressure.

How long will my softener last?

Every Kinetico water softener goes through rigorous quality control checks before it leaves the factory. And with an industry leading 10 year parts warranty, you are guaranteed years of trouble-free use. In fact, some of our softeners have been known to last for 35 years!

Will it clean off the limescale in my existing pipes?

This is not an instant process but over time soft water will remove the scale. A water softener should be an essential appliance for anyone moving into a new home to keep everything looking and running like new.
