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.

I can't tell you if it soften water better than any other product, but so far I've had an amazing experience with this company. The quality is amazing, the price is amazing, the quick and -FREE- shipping is amazing... but the biggest thing I was concerned about buying something like this online... the support is amazing. You know, if you buy this from a local company that comes out and installs it, they can walk you through all of the functions and features and go over any questions you might have. I saved several thousand dollars buying this online and installing it myself, but didn't have to give up any support functionality. Discount Water Softeners company addressed every issue and concern I encountered. When they say "reach out to us", "give us a call", if you need assistance, they mean it. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase experience
I have had this in for a little over a week, so much better than our 3 year old system we had. Water is soft, finally! Very easy to install had it done in an hour. Customer service was very friendly and helpful. I placed the order online and was contacted the next business day in the morning to confirm my order and system needs. Much less expensive than buying locally, as our previous system was. I like supporting local businesses but not if I'm getting raked over coals and robbed at the same time.
My experience has been great. I thought I was going to have to spend more money on a water softner but after I answered the questions about what I was looking for, they explained to me the system that was appropriate for my home and for the 3 people that live in it. I will most recommend and will do business with Discount Water Softner in the future!
This product is a 10! Quality product and a Quality Company. I installed it without a hitch and it is marvelous; Great quality water; and a Great experience. I am impressed
This is the third Genesis water softener I have bought and installed from Discount Water. The system works great, the install is very easy, I watched both the instructor lead video and read the install guide. The oldest system I have is 5 years and it still performs as good as the day I installed it. The price is very good also.
My old fleck softener was becoming ineffective so I needed a replacement. A friend that replaces water softeners as part of his job directed me to Discount Water Softeners and suggested the Genesis upflow system. I'm glad he did. The price was the best I could find, delivery was fast (within 2 days), installation was easy and the system is working great. I would recommend Discount Water Softeners and the Genesis system to anyone needing a new system.
This softener rocks! The install only took me an hour and the longest part was running to the hardware store to get plumbing parts. If your looking for a great water softener, I would totally recommend the Genesis 2.
Excellent product. Never had an issue. Competitive price. This is my second one. My first I left with the sale of my home. I had a plumber install it but it’s not necessary if you have then tools and knowledge. I highly recommend Genesis 2.
Best rated of all reviewed. upflow provides substantial saving. easy to install. Had to call tech support to walk me through final set up and first regeneration. It was a breeze. Hardness from 15 down to 1.5 what a difference. Highly recommended for quality and for outstanding technical support. Thanks . Jim
