The stylish and compact Kinetico 2020c water softener is one of their best selling products and will fit easily under your kitchen sink. Best suited to households with 1 – 3 bathrooms.
The Kinetico 2050c is a high performance, semi-commercial water softener for households with 3 – 6 bathrooms. It’s a larger version of the 2020c, with all the same benefits, but a faster flow rate throughout.

How it works

Kinetico water softeners use a process called “ion exchange”. This is the only proven way to remove calcium and magnesium from the water, which causes limescale. The two cylinder tanks contain food grade resin beads, which remove calcium and magnesium ions from the hard water, making it soft.

Throughout the day, the water softener needs to “regenerate”, which means it has to flush off the magnesium and calcium minerals that have built up on the resin beads. The water meter will tell the softener when to regenerate based on usage so you don’t need to worry about setting meters.

The unique design of a twin-tank softener means that you’ll continue to get soft water 24 hours a day from one cylinder while the softener is regenerating in the other. This is not the case with single-tank softeners where hard water can be let into your system while the regeneration process is taking place.

Buying a water softener – what you need to know

Electric vs Non-electric. Unlike most water softeners, Kinetico softeners are powered by the natural kinetic flow of the water. This saves you money as you don’t use your household electric supply. There are no fiddly timing meters to set, they’re easier to install and there’s nothing to plug in.

Single vs Twin-tank. Water softeners need regenerating daily with salt to clear the magnesium and calcium (limescale) from the cylinders, flushing the residue down the drain. The beauty of having a twin-tank softener is that this process can happen in one tank, while you still get lovely soft water from the other. Kinetico invented the non-electric, twin-tank water softener, introducing this innovative product to the UK some 40 years ago. Single-tank softeners are not so efficient and let hard water into your system for the period your tank is regenerating. A twin-tank system is the only product that provide you with luxuriously soft water 24/7.

Warranty. You wouldn’t by a car or any other household appliance without the reassurance of having a warranty. For complete peace of mind, Kinetico offers a 10 year warranty on its 2020c and 2050c models, which few other manufacturers offer. With 40 years of manufacturing expertise they’re comfortable in the knowledge that they’ll always produce products that deliver a high level of quality and reliability, but the warranty is there should you need it.

Household water flow rate. Don’t be confused by numbers, Kinetico don’t expect you to know the flow rate of the water coming into your house; our Kinetico trained engineers can tell you that by doing a test in your home. It is, however, important for us to know so we can suggest the best water softener product for you and your family.

Stamp of approval. When you’re presented with lots of different water softener products you’ll want to go with one that has been independently verified and has an industry stamp of approval. The Kinetico 2020c is the only water softener in the UK that has been awarded the British Standard 14743 accreditation and has the WRAS (Water Regulatory Advisory Scheme) approved status.

Water softener maintenance

Adding salt to your machine is the only maintenance you’ll have to do to a Kinetico water softener. Block salt is the most convenient, mess-free way to add salt to your machine.

Block Salt is simply food-grade salt that has been compacted into convenient blocks enabling you to load easily into your water softener unit. Kinetico block salt is ergonomically designed with an easy-grip design so you can load effortlessly.

Kinetico recommend that you’ll need one block of water softener salt for every member of your household per month. If you have four family members in the home, you’ll need approximately four blocks of salt per month putting in two at a time.

Depending on usage, Kinetico advise that every week you simply open the front cover of the machine to check the salt. You’ll see the salt blocks will go down as the system draws the salt for the regeneration process. When the block is at a very low level, this is the time to put new ones in.

Is a Solar iBoost suitable for you?

There are some considerations when thinking about having a Solar iBoost fitted to give you free hot water:

  • Do you have on-site power generation? (solar PV and wind are the most common in the UK)
  • Is the distance between your water tank and utility meter less than 30m?
  • Is energy usage in the household less than the energy generated, with excess exported to the grid?
  • Are you looking to reduce your energy bills?

If you can answer yes to all of these, then a Solar iBoost is almost certainly the right choice for you.
