Inventors of the non-electric, twin-cylinder water softener

Kinetico invented the innovative, non-electric, twin-cylinder water softener more than 45 years ago and it remains the best system available in the industry to this day! The patented approach to water treatment eliminates the hassle of timers, computers and electrical breakdowns by using water power instead of electricity. Meanwhile, the dual-cylinder design ensures you have a constant supply of softened water, unlike with other single-cylinder systems.

Saves money and the environment

The non-electric Premier Compact Water Softener uses the kinetic energy of water to power the unit, making it both economical to use and environmentally friendly. Our system also monitors water usage and only processes your water when needed, eliminating waste and minimising energy use.

The systems treat water efficiently, effectively and economically and some customers have had their Kinetico systems for more than two decades!
