“Kinetico 2020c - Highly recommended”

Written on: 16/04/2015 by Garcia58 (1 review written)

The Kinetico system was more expensive than the other models I was looking at but I am very happy that I made the decision to pay the extra. It was well worth it. It is very neat, compact system compared to the other water systems that my neighbours have and it is much better for the following reasons: Block salt much easier to use that big bags of salt A lot less water used to regenerate that the other water systems, therefore when the water meters come in to effect the cost will be… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2015

We have our Kinetico 2020c unit for over a year now, we noticed an improvenment in our water quality immediately, we no longer need to descale the kettle or the shower heads. The water when having a shower is so soft and refreshing, I was genuinely amazed.

“Hard water at an end at last”

Written on: 16/04/2015 by Aleenad324 (1 review written)

Last year my wife and I had your water softening system installed (Kinetico System). It works perfectly. Our water is now really soft. We no longer have any difficulties with hard water in our washing machine and our clothes are now beautifully soft. We also opted for the drinking water unit. Great value and also gives one a huge incentive to drink more water. The quality of the water is excellent. Our experience with Perfect Water Systems, from the first day upon which we made contact… Read Full Review

We have had this system in our home for over 12 months and we are very pleased with it. it was installed quickly, the installer went through it in detail and reordering salt blocks has been very easy with prompt delivery.

I would highly recommend the kinetiico water system coming from an area with high amounts of lime in the water after years of buying water filter jugs I eventually made the decision to install one of these water systems in my house and the difference is phonemal no more scratching after a shower and no more changing kettles every few months .the water is now drinkable which is a major change… Read Full Review

“Excellent product”

Written on: 14/04/2015 by Elaine111 (1 review written)

Really good. Before we used this item, my shower and washing machine become damaged by lime scale. Now these problems are no more and I would recommend this to everybody stuffing similar problems with their water. No matter how hard I tried I honestly could not find any faults with the product… Read Full Review

“Width specification on this softener is deceptive ”

Written on: 01/04/2015 by rhWilliams102 (1 review written)

This softener works brilliantly! However we had a very narrow space to fit it in where our old softener used to go! All the literature States it is 210mm wide! Well the casing is! However the pipes come out of the side making the total width about 270 mm! We now have our brand new softener firmly wedged between a tumble drier and a washing machine that rocks and shakes against the side pipes as it spins!!! Not ideal and not what we had in mind! We estimated a comfortable space each side of the… Read Full Review

“First time water softener user.”

Written on: 01/04/2015 by Joey495 (1 review written)

Greatly impressed by the alternative siting of the unit as suggested by the installation engineer. He utilised the empty corner space between the sink unit and washing machine and we have consequently lost no cupboard space at all. Early days yet as has only been installed two days, but can feel the difference in skin softness and better soap lather. Very satisfied so far… Read Full Review

“Definitely worth investing in”

Written on: 18/03/2015

I purchased the Kinetico 2020c water softener from J M Softeners of Pangbourne, Reading - the registered Kinetico agent for my area. To say that I am pleased with the product is an understatement. It does exactly what it is supposed to do, i.e. producing lovely soft water which is already saving me money as I have to use less detergent, shampoo, conditioner, salt for dishwasher, etc. etc. I wish that I had bought one of these years ago. It was installed by a plumber working on behalf of J M… Read Full Review

“compact quiet design ”

Written on: 14/03/2015 by Adams76 (1 review written)

Just had a 2020c installed, fitted neatly in a tight cupboard under the sink. Quiet operation even during regeneration and can be isolated so that we can take unit with us should we move home. Only just had it installed, but had previously become fed up with appliances and shower being ruined by hard water. Fingers crossed this will work a treat. Design is compact and is easy to use. So good so far… Read Full Review

“THE ROLLS ROYCE of WATER SOFTENERS”

Written on: 06/03/2015 by Stewart0402 (1 review written)

This is for all of you doubting Thomas's out there pondering over what water softener to buy! I had a Kinetico Compact (Block Salt) softener installed in my house in March 1987 and guess what? its just had its 18th birthday and is now about to enter is 19th year! Yes it is still going strong and (touch wood) we have never had a problem with it in its life to date. Before we had it installed, we replaced our hot water tank and it took 2 grown men to lift it out of the airing cupboard. We then… Read Full Review

“Expensive but worth the extra cost”

Written on: 03/03/2015 by msuthers (1 review written)

Yes, the Kinetico is an expensive option, but I managed to save some cost by buying when they had a free installation offer on. However, due to my flat having limited space, this model was really the only option available. Despite some teething issues (more on that later) I have not been disappointed and am very happy with this model after a few months of use. It's small, efficient, quiet when "recharging", has had no noticeable effect on water pressure, and serves all of my needs perfectly… Read Full Review

“New machine Failed twice since 15/1/15 installation”

Written on: 25/02/2015 by BobHammond (1 review written)

The machine was stuck on rinse. Contacted our local dealer, who came swiftly and manually regenerated the machine twice without it failing. It failed again today, same symptoms. Contacted our dealer, who arranged for Kinetico to come. We now have an appointment for their visit. Overall we are dis-satisfied with the softener. After paying that sort of price we expect something that actually works. Our local dealer is very good and he did everything he could to leave us with a working… Read Full Review

“Product, Installation. ”

Written on: 23/02/2015 by Wise312 (1 review written)

I found your water softener suited my requirements perfectly, the fact that it did not require any electrical input and only used the system when required is a great bonus to any household. The installation was carried out professionally and on the agreed time by both parties.I would recommend this product and a Kinetico installer… Read Full Review

“So far so good”

Written on: 12/02/2015 by MikeSpragg (2 reviews written)

Having only had the unit a few weeks we can already tell the difference. Using the supplied tablets we can see hot water is now soft (cold converts straight away). Can't wait to see what it does with shower screens, kettle etc. Having read a few other reviews where people say "stops working after 18 years" you need to be aware that the unit will only last 10 anyway. This is because the resin (in the tanks) will only last that long. So, don't expect it to last forever! Our fitter (AWS) did an… Read Full Review
