For all of our home water systems, we use Kinetico products. Kinetico systems provide the highest in efficiency with the least amount of waste.

Drink and Cook With the Cleanest Water Available
Trying to install a system that makes all of the water in your house of drinking water quality is impractical, unnecessary, and extremely expensive. Most of our customers install a residential water treatment system to soften and/or filter the water for the entire house and then install a drinking water filtration system that uses advanced reverse osmosis (RO) technology to remove all of the particles that cannot be removed by standard purification. This water is usually directed toward the water outlets in the kitchen so that the water you drink and the water used for cooking are purest quality available.
Benefits for the Family
The benefit of a home water filtration system goes far beyond the health benefits of drinking purified water. With a water softener, your family will be protected from the harsh effects that come from chlorine and dissolved minerals that are generally found in most municipal and well water systems. Showering with softened water leaves the skin and hair feeling smooth and clean, whereas hard water can leave the skin feeling tight and dry and hair flat and lifeless. This bathing water can be particularly harsh on the skin of infants and young children. Approximately 1 in 20 children suffer from uncomfortable episodes of eczema, a condition that makes the skin dry and itchy. Although hard water is not the cause of eczema (it is largely a genetic condition), hard water residue left on the skin can exacerbate the condition. Residential water treatments can remove chemicals and minerals such as chlorine, chloramine (a combination of chlorine and ammonia often used as a disinfectant by a growing number of municipal water systems around the country), calcium, and lime that dry out and irritate the skin.
Benefits for the House
Residential water treatment is not only good for the people in a home, it can protect the infrastructure of the home itself. The calcium and lime that are present in the water leave a residue that can build up on anything that comes into contact with water. The biggest culprits in hard water are calcium (from limestone) and magnesium. You will know if you have hard water by the bathtub rings or white scale in your shower, spots on dishes and flatware coming out of the dishwasher, or faded clothes coming out of the washing machine.
Hard water deposits build up and damage plumbing and appliances like water heaters, shower heads, dishwashers, and washing machines. Hard water residue can lead to very expensive repairs and shorten the life of appliances. In fact, tankless water heaters have very little tolerance for hard water and often need replacing within 2 years. Hard water can leave a whitish build up in your shower or bath that is difficult to remove. This same reside is left on your clothing, your sheets, your dishes, and anything else that you wash. Installing a home water system protects your entire home from the harsh and wearing effects of hard water.
