Frequently asked questions

A water softener provides numerous benefits, both ones you can see right away (like better tasting water, smoother skin, and softer clothes) and ones you can’t (like improved health).

But not all water softeners are created equal. That’s why Aquarius Water Conditioning is proud to be an authorized dealer of Kinetico Water Softeners — the only systems capable of making your water 99.99% pure.

We really can’t say enough about the brand. We are truly privileged to offer such high-quality water treatment options to our customers throughout the Minnesota and Wisconsin area. If you’re considering purchasing a water softening system, but are unsure which is best for you, the answer is always Kinetico.

Kinetico is different. Here’s why:

  • Non-Electric — Imagine if every time you had guests over and needed to use a little extra water, you had to let your system rest for a few hours. Pretty inconvenient, right? With a non-electric Kinetico model, that problem is a thing of the past. Because Kinetico systems are powered by the force of water or kinetic energy, you’ll never have to worry about giving your system some “downtime” between showers and laundry. There are also no electrical components to repair or replace, so you can count on Kinetico Water Softeners to solve your hard water and soluble iron problems without creating new ones.

  • Continuous Performance — Kinetico’s “smart technology” means you’ll enjoy consistent, quality performance for years. Even in a blackout, your water will remain free-flowing. With Kinetico, one tank is always in service while the other tank is either on standby or regenerating. Our systems regenerate at any time of the day or night to ensure you will always have a supply of soft water on-hand. So if you have a house full of guests or are washing multiple loads of laundry, you’ll never run out of soft water — we guarantee it!

  • AccuDial Technology — When compared to electric models, Kinetico systems are initially a bit more expensive. BUT, because electric models run on electricity, they’ll take a toll on your monthly electric bill. Kinetico’s patent-pending AccuDial feature allows more precise calibration to your home’s specific water conditions for maximum efficiency, cost savings, and waste reduction. It’s a water softener that’s a custom-fit for your home.

Hard water is softened by removing the calcium and magnesium it contains. When hard water passes through the softening system’s resin bed, the calcium and magnesium (hardness) ions are removed through an ion exchange process, so only softened water passes through to your home.  Once the resin bed fills up with hardness ions, it must be regenerated (cleaned). Salt is typically used in the regeneration process to restore the resin to a “clean” state so the ion exchange process can begin again.

From multi-tank systems powered by the energy of moving water to a more traditional approach, Aquarius and Kinetico cover all your options. Our local water expert will work with you to choose the water softener that’s right for you.

High-quality softening resin and generous system capacity mean your water issues will be history. And so will any hassles or inconveniences you may have experienced with other water softeners, thanks to Kinetico’s patented non-electric valve and on-demand regeneration. You’ll have an unlimited supply of perfectly soft water. With the best water softener warranties available, you can rest easy knowing you’ve made a great decision.

You should start seeing soft water immediately on the cold water supply. Soft, hot water will be dependent on using the existing hard water in your hot water tank. Please refer to pages three and four of your owner’s manual for more information.

You should start experiencing soft water immediately after installation in the cold water supply. But soft, hot water will be dependent on using the existing hard water in your hot water tank.

Once all of the existing hard water in your water heater has been used, you should start experiencing soft hot water. Additionally, you should have a good lather in the shower and a soft, slick feeling on your skin.

If you are still in doubt, try testing the soft water supply using one of the hardness test strips provided in your Welcome Package.

This is completely dependent on your household’s water usage and water analysis. Each Kinetico water softener is set up specifically for the household water chemistry.

Your softener may regenerate several times in a day if you’re using more water or it may not regenerate for more than a day if your water usage is low.

To get information for your individual softener, we can give you an approximation of regeneration frequency based on your water softener model and the number of people in your household. 

Lift the lid of the brine tank to check the level of salt. If you can see water, it is time to add salt. You can add salt any time there is enough room to accommodate at least one bag.

However, keep in mind that keeping the brine tank completely full of salt can contribute to salt bridging, which prevents the softener from regenerating properly. For a standard size brine drum (pictured to left) it is recommended not to exceed 2/3 of its capacity.

If you have a smaller size brine drum (short and square vs. round) it is ok to fill it up to the top.

We suggest that you use a good, clean grade of high-purity salt. Kinetico salt is 99.6% pure and is the best to use for your softener. Un-pure salts, such as solar salt or rock salt, may cause a salt bridge (thick block of salt) in the brine drum or may clog up the system with debris. This will cause your system to work inefficiently or to malfunction causing you to experience hard water.

When you wash in soft water. you feel your skin the way it’s supposed to feel – clean and silk smooth. When you wash in hard water, the soap you’re using reacts with the hardness minerals in the water for form and insoluble residue that’s difficult to wash away, resulting in a “squeaky clean” sound/feeling.

This is, in fact, your skin sticking because of the soap residue. Soft water rinses your skin and hair better than hard water and doesn’t leave a soap or shampoo residue behind. The silky feeling you experience is actually the natural oils of your skin coming through when not blocked by hard water residue.

Your water softener improves the working water throughout your home. This is the water used for bathing, cleaning and laundry. Softeners are not designed to improve drinking water quality.

Drinking water systems improve the water that you use to drink and cook with by removing objectionable taste, odor and other potential contaminants. They are designed to significantly reduce to negligible levels the amount of contaminants that are commonly found in city and well water supplies.

Yes, soft water is okay for drinking and cooking. Since your softener regenerates with sodium chloride (salt), keep in mind that there will be a small amount of sodium added to the softened water. People who are on a sodium-restricted diet should consider the added sodium as part of their overall intake. For the highest quality drinking water possible, a Kinetico Drinking Water System will remove as much as 98 percent of total dissolved solids, including sodium, from your water.
