Our water experts put their very best thinking into designing water treatment products that remove just about everything from water that isn’t water.

Unmatched Performance


For more than 40 years, Kinetico has taken a smarter approach to solving water problems. Our systems treat water more efficiently, effectively and economically.

Unplugged


Water and electricity don’t mix, so Kinetico found a better way. Kinetico systems are powered by the force of moving water, not electricity. Our patented, “unplugged” approach to water treatment eliminates the hassles of timers and computers—there’s nothing to plug in, and there are no electrical components to set, adjust, repair or replace. Our systems also monitor water use and only process your water when needed, eliminating waste.

Dependable


Kinetico systems are built to last. But don’t just take our word for it; ask any Kinetico customer. Many customers became tired of all the problems with their previous water systems and replaced them with a Kinetico system. They now enjoy the system’s reliability and the fact that it provides them with treated water whenever they need it.
Kinetico products are tested before they leave our manufacturing facilities. If a product doesn’t measure up, it never leaves the plant. That’s one of the reasons why Kinetico has the confidence to offer industry-leading warranties. Kinetico customers can rest assured we’ll be there for them.

We’ll be the first to admit that water treatment can be confusing. There are so many options. Choosing the appropriate system for you and your home is tough, and so is finding the right company to work with. Kinetico takes the guesswork out of water treatment.

The Importance of Water Testing

Why do we offer free water tests? Because the more you know, the better off you’ll be.

FM Water Systems

Water quality can no longer be taken for granted. There are many variables that can come into play: the possibility of contamination, our aging water distribution system, unknown well-water quality and the type of plumbing in your home. And unbeknownst to many, municipalities can supply you with hard water. They are also supposed to provide you with water that meets federal standards, but are those standards your standards? You can read more about regulated contaminants from the United States Environmental Protection Agency or learn about the recommended ways to keep your family’s water safe with the Water Quality Association’s Drinking Water Treatment Fact Sheet.

Some water issues are obvious, others are invisible. Our local water professionals know your area and your water. They’ll provide you with a free water analysis and plumbing audit, so you can be armed with the information you need to make the right decisions for you and your home.

Bacteria & Viruses

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there could be as many as 12 million cases of waterborne acute gastrointestinal illness annually in the United States alone. These illnesses are frequently caused by bacteria, viruses and protozoa that make their way into the water supply. And unfortunately, these contaminants can survive in the environment for months. Even well operated, state-of-the-art treatment plants cannot ensure that drinking water is entirely free of microbial pathogens. System failures do occur, and not all systems are functioning at the levels they should. And bottled water, which is unregulated and varies considerably, may not offer any more safeguards against pathogens than tap water.

If you’re concerned about the safety of your water supply, contact Ray your local Kinetico water professional for a free water test and in-home plumbing audit. They’ll get you reliable facts you can act on with confidence, and give you dependable options if your water needs treatment.

Staining

Water is a natural solvent, and given the needed time and conditions, it will dissolve anything it comes in contact with. That’s why, depending on where you live, your water can contain iron or manganese, which can cause rusty-orange or black staining. It can even alter hair color. Or if you have water that has a low pH, you can see the telltale, blue-green stains. You’ll see the stains on clothes, fixtures, sinks, tubs, water-using appliances and toilets. Quite frankly, the stains can appear on anything the water comes in regular contact with. These stains are very difficult to remove, if you can get rid of them at all.

Ray your local Kinetico water professional will be happy to perform a free, in-home water analysis to see what’s causing stains in your home. From there, they will suggest options for treatment if needed.

Hard Water

Hard water contains dissolved calcium, magnesium and, in many cases, iron. Most homes have hard water, whether it is supplied by a private well or a municipality. In many cases, homeowners don’t realize they have hard water or the constant and expensive harm it causes.

Many mistake the telltale signs of hard water and blame the problems on inadequate cleaners and detergents and poor performing appliances. Or they resign themselves to the fact that these problems are simply a way of life. Dry skin and hair, bathtub ring, spots on glass and silverware, dull, dingy clothing, disappointing performance and a shortened life expectancy of water-using appliances are all problems frequently caused by hard water. Most don’t realize how much time, money and energy is spent fighting the hard water battle.

Take the first step and find out how hard your water is and if there are any other issues. Your Ray your local Kinetico water professional will be glad to arrange for a free, in-home water analysis.

Cloudy Water

Cloudy, murky or grayish water is usually caused by dissolved or suspended solids. This is also known as “turbidity.” Water can become turbid naturally or from land disturbances such as construction, storms and urban runoff.

The turbidity of your water can range from low to high. But even if your water looks clear, it could still contain a high level of dissolved solids. That’s why, whether your water is turbid or not, we recommend you have it tested.  Ray your Kinetico water professional will perform a free water analysis and plumbing audit. Based on the results, they’ll recommend appropriate treatment approaches if needed.

Tastes & Odors

In its pristine state, water is colorless, tasteless and odorless.
 In fact, water that smells or tastes funny is the primary reason people turn to bottled water, which is expensive for you and harmful for the environment—millions of barrels of oil are used each year to produce and transport it and billions of plastic bottles are added to our landfills. So, if your water tastes or smells strange, you owe it to yourself to find out why.

Earthy or musty taste and odor

These types of complaints are generally the result of compounds released due to decayed vegetation and are typically associated with different forms of algae. They are most prevalent in supplies that use surface water as their supply. While not toxic, they are nonetheless unpleasant and can be offensive at very low concentrations.

“Rotten egg” smell

Another common source of smelly water is hydrogen sulfide. Hydrogen sulfide is a colorless corrosive gas that has the characteristic odor of rotten eggs. It is most commonly found in groundwater supplies and often is noticed coming from hot water tanks. It can occur naturally from deep in the ground or can be produced by sulfate-reducing bacteria. It can affect the taste of food and beverages, making them unpalatable. If present in high enough concentrations, it can leave an unpleasant odor on hair and clothing. It can also accelerate corrosion of metal parts in appliances. Because it is a gas, testing for it usually has to be performed onsite.

Metallic taste

As the name implies, a metallic taste to your water indicates the presence of metals such as iron, copper, manganese or zinc. Iron and manganese are often naturally occurring and are predominantly found in groundwater. Copper and zinc can come from an aging water distribution system or the corrosion of copper plumbing and brass fittings.

Chlorine Taste & Smell

Since the 1850s, chlorine has been used as a disinfectant to kill harmful bacteria in water itself or the pipes that transport it. It has helped end a number of major threats to public health. Although chlorine in water is essential at the treatment plant and in the water distribution system, it is no longer necessary once the water reaches your home.

Though chlorine is vital for stopping the spread of disease, its benefits come at a price. Chlorine tastes and smells bad. It dries skin and hair, fades clothes (bleach is made of chlorine) and can dry out the rubber seals in appliances, shortening their lives.

Kinetico’s chlorine removal systems eliminate chlorine from your water. Call Ray your local Kinetico water professional to set up a free in-home water analysis and to discuss your options.

Scale

As water travels through the earth, it picks up minerals, like calcium and magnesium. Calcium and magnesium are found in most water supplies; when the water eventually enters your home and is heated, it forms a rock-like scale build-up.

Scale is obvious on shower doors and fixtures, but it will also form in places you can’t see. Common problem areas include water pipes and hot water-using appliances, such as your water heater and dishwasher. Homeowners frequently purchase expensive cleaners and chemicals to remove the scale, or chip away at it with sharp objects; however, they are often disappointed with the difficulty, expense and effectiveness of their efforts.

Your Ray local Kinetico water professional will be happy to perform a free, in-home water analysis to address your scale build-up issues. From there, they will suggest options for treatment.
