Don’t go near Kinetico. The moving parts in the motor are so small and numerous that it’s like running water through a grandfather clock. The softener recharges during the day, so if you’re in the shower when it recharges, good luck getting the soap out of your eyes!

Ecowater makes Sears, GE & Northstar.When you buy an Eco, your just paying triple for a Sears unit.

I have a friend who has had a Culligan unit for 40 years! Think about that! He said when it finally breaks down he’s going to have it bronzed and put on his fireplace mantle! (With his wife’s permission, of course)
