Why Kinetico

Company History

Kinetico Incorporated was founded in 1970 by two engineers who pioneered the development of non-electric, fully automatic water treatment systems. Evolving from the Tangent Company, a small consulting design firm, Kinetico soon became a global organization of independent dealers and international distributors representing nearly 100 countries. Through the dedication of its founders, employees and distribution network, Kinetico has experienced tremendous success. The company has grown from a two-man, creative undertaking into a strong and dynamic organization. Innovative technology and a strong commitment to customer satisfaction have distinguished the company and positioned Kinetico as a leader in today's ever-changing water treatment industry.

Kinetico manufactures complete systems that improve water quality for general use as well as those that provide high-quality drinking water for consumption. Kinetico quality water systems are used in rural, problem water areas and where water is supplied by municipally controlled water utilities.

The Kinetico Difference - Drinking Water Stations

There are over 12 features of the K5 Drinking Station that set it apart from our competitors.

  • Cartridge Options. Eight different options to meet your removal needs now and in the future. Includes the Perfecta® Virus/Bacteria Guard for microbiologically pure water. The Mineral Plus cartridge improves the taste and health benefits of water by adding magnesium and calcium back into the treated water. Cartridges also available for arsenic, chloramines, chlorine/sediment, sediment, perchlorate, and VOC reduction. Final polish with carbon post filter.
  • QuickFlo Technology. Delivers a strong flow of water from the faucet. Allows system to produce more water in less time.
  • High Daily Production. Can produce more than 40 gallons per day.
  • Quick Disconnect Sanitary Filter Cartridges. Makes changing filters easy.
  • Patented, Exclusive EverClean® Rinse. Consistently high water quality. Increases membrane life lowers maintenance cost.
  • PureMometer® Filter Life Indicator. Shows filter capacity.
  • Patented, Tamper-Proof MACguard® Filter. No more wondering when to change cartridges. Assures high quality water and peace of mind.
  • Automatic System Shutdown. Conserves water - doesn't run water continuously to drain.
  • Exclusive Designer. Lead-free, stylish design available in a variety of finishes.
  • Non-Electric, Totally Automatic. No electrical problems.
  • Efficient Operation. Conserves water, lower operating costs.
  • Outstanding Warranty. Dependability, peace of mind.

The Kinetico Difference - Water Softeners

  • Non electric Only Kinetico uses the kinetic energy of moving water to power its systems instead of electicity-thanks to our patented Turbine. So you never have to worry about costly repairs or a higher monthly electric bill.
  • 24/7 Twin tank design allows our systems to backwash without ever going offline for around-the-clock operation. You'll notice a difference all throughout your home.
  • Metered Regeneration Meters water use to accurately determine when it's time to regenerate with watch-like precision, resulting in less waste and greater savings. So when you go on vacation so does your system.
  • Soft Water Rinse Uses only soft, conditioned water to clean itself, which prolongs the life of the system. Because our systems are engineered to last.
  • Countercurrent Regeneration Unlike most other softeners, our systems regenerate from the bottom up for a more even and efficient use of resin beads. Resulting in less waste, less salt and a longer lasting system.
