Upflow regeneration allows for a more precise recharge of the resin allowing the system to only recharge the depleted resin.
Upflow regeneration also drives hardness away from the resin to the drain instead of downflow that forces "dirty" water through the clean charged resin.
If the system drops below 3% a short recharge will restore the system to get to the regular 2:00 AM delayed regeneration time.
Green Technology that reduces salt discharge by as much as 75%.
Utilizes a 30 year proven internal ceramic disc. No more torn or worn seals.

The softener was very easy to install and get up and running. Only had in service for 3 days, but so far it is working great.
Purchasing from Discount Water Softeners was very easy. They answered any questions I had and the delivery was quick and just as advertised.
Noticed the difference instantly! Installation was easy, but had some confusion with the variances in all the different installation videos and manuals. Overall I highly recommend.
Finally got around to installing my Genesis 2 Premier system. After getting all the boxes opened, the brining line was not included. Ran to Ace and picked up some appropriate hose and we are in business. Very impressed overall with the quality. I have had a $3990 Kinetico system before and this seems just as well made for about a third of the price. All is good.
Based on my research, I estimate that I saved about $1,500 on the purchase of my Genesis 2 Premier Upflow water softener from Discount Water Softeners when compared to the large companies with salesmen and installers. There was sufficient information on the DSW Web site for me to make a decision on which water softener to purchase, this includes the specs for each water softener, the online videos, and manuals. Comparing the quality of the various companies' water softeners included considering their warranties, I concluded that my purchase was the best choice for me. The installation manuals were adequate to get the softener installed but they probably could use another update to make the various steps clearer and more concise. But, overall, they helped to get the job done and the water softener is up and running. My water hardness tests, before and after, clearly show that the softener is doing its job. By the way, the purchase process was easy, shipment, and delivery were as promised.
Replaced an old timer based unit. Install was easy. The quick connect hoses are really convenient. The use of the hoses however, does require the tank to be a significant distance from the wall. Not really the best solution for tight spaces.
Genesis 2 Premier Softener has been in service for 5 days and no problems to this point, water is very soft.
Product arrived promptly and as described. Installation was easy and straight forward. Discharge drain hose needs to be secure as water is discharged swiftly. Be sure valve assembly is a little more than hand tight to prevent leaks. Programming was straight forward and not difficult. Can tell water is softer without slimy feel on skin. Has only been 1 month since installation so will have to wait an see other benefits.
Aside from dated installation manual that wasn't the easiest to follow and online videos that showed part of the install for my model, install went well and system works great. The sales person was very helpful and my system arrived on time and as described. Operation of the system couldn't be easier. Thank you to everyone at DWS. Sam
In my installation (March, 2019) I added a meter inline from Assured Automation. Its readings match those at the street reasonably well, but are roughly double the readings from the control panel of the Genesis Premier. In other words, the Genesis numbers are low by about half.
Discount Water Softeners says that it will not register flows for low-flow devices, such as reverse osmosis or humidifiers, and "Less than 0.5 gpm or less may not read is what the manufacturer tells us". We do not have any of these, just usual sinks, shower, toilets, washer, and dishwasher.
As a result, the "Days to Regenerate" number is also wrong, starting at "6" for about two days, then "5" for another two days, etc. It typically regenerates after 10 or 11 days.
Discount Water Softeners says that "Fleck is the same. Below half gallon a minute does not always register. Been like that on most Softener meters for the last 20 years that I have been in water treatment.", so there is apparently nothing wrong with my unit. Still, would be nice to know this in advance rather than spend the time chasing it. DWS should put something on their site.
