    Rental house with a Kinetikco

    Hello, I’m renting an house that has a Kinetico 4040 OD. There’s no installation date on the system (will try to contact the company on the sticker..) but seems in decent conditions. The tank only had residual water and the brine well was full of salt crystals, to the point that it could not...

    Kinetico versus Clack

    I'm kind of surprised after comparing a couple companies, my favorites came down to a Clack system or a Kinetico system - both quoted to be around $5k. My area in Southern California: water hardness 12.8 GPG, Chloramine 0.78 PPM Clack was quoted for 1.5cu ft Clack, 1 in valve, 10% cross link...

    Kinetico 60 Regen Drive Pawl Skipping - Sticks in Regen Cycle

    I've got a Kinetico Model 60 (unknown age, serial 01198097 if that gives any indication). City water main broke in front of our home, and shortly after the system would get stuck in the regeneration cycle. Initial thought was a sediment influx, though there is a pre-filter. Disassembled and...

    Fleck 9100 SXT over old Kinetico tanks

    Hi all, I've just purchased a Fleck 9100 SXT to replace the Kinetico Model 100 valve head. I've been performing most of the maintenance on the K100 since I bought my home about 18 years ago, but I paid to have the media replaced a few years ago. It has the number 6 wheel. When it's behaving...

    Kinetico FLT/SFT Para-Flo 4040 Quad tank with neutralizer?

    I just bought a home near Fort Mill, SC and the seller said the Kinetico Water Softener was offline because it needs a "rebuild and new resin and neutralizer". I called a Kinetico dealer and he came out, tested the water and it was slightly acid at about 6.0ph and 5 grains of hardness. It...

    Kinetico Float Adjustment

    Hi, I recently moved my Kinetico Model 60 softener as a part of remodeling my basement. It was working well before the move. However, I think I may have inadvertently changed the float height setting because after moving the softener, we are now running out of soft water just before each...

    Kinetico Softener Irregular BW

    I've searched for this without luck. We've had a Kinetico softener for many years, but recently the backwashing has become irregular. It backwashed on Tuesday evening last week, finishing around 9pm. At 6:30am the following morning it was backwashing again although only one person had used a...

    Kinetico Model 30 - not regenerating

    I've seen good discussions here, so here goes.... I have a Kinetico Model 30 and it looks like the dial is stuck. I've switched it to the next 'block' (brine/rinse, backwash, etc.) and checked back in half an hour, but it was still at the same spot. So it doesn't seem to be moving by itself...

    Comparing Kinetico and GE AdvantaPure softeners

    In doing research, it has seemed to me that these are potentially the two best upflow water softeners. So I tried to compare efficiency and costs. Here is what I've been told for our water which is 223 PPM and 12.8 grains hardness. I've been told the GE RO system only wastes .5 gallons for...

    Kinetico Model 50 won't auto-regenerate

    I have a Kinetico Model 50, unknown age, it came with the house 8 years ago. I noticed that it stopped using salt and on investigation I discovered that it wasn't regenerating. When water is running in the house, I believe I should see the 'No Back Pawl' and the "Regen Start Pawl' ticking...

    Kinetico Question

    I have a 2060 dual tank kinetico system made in 2008. I'm trying to see if the unit is operating correctly as it appears my post-softened water seems a bit salty than normal. I broke down the control head today, save the gear assemblies on the very top of the unit. After inspection and...

    Kinetico peroxide tube overflowing

    I have a Kinetico system with sulfur removal. The water lately has a slight iron smell, taste, but otherwise is fine. No rotten eggs! I noticed the peroxide tube is overflowing continuously. Any thoughts on cause? I've manually regenerated both the main and ancillary tanks several times. Thanks!
