Regeneration

Rethinking Regeneration.

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%.

Valve Head

Valve Head

Utilizes a 30 year proven internal ceramic disc. No more torn or worn seals. 

Advanced smart digital control provides precise brining customized to your water source reducing salt usage by as much as 45%.

Selective backwashing reduces water usage by up to 64% over standard water softeners.

Soft water brine refill keeps your brine tank cleaner and control head running smoother.

  • Its important to read installation instruction a few times and watched videos available. Time to install was around two hours and very easy using the plumbing kit offered.

    Genesis 2 Premier Softener has been in service for 5 days and no problems to this point, water is very soft.

    Posted by William Melewski

    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

  • Works well but does not measure gallons used properly

    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.

    Eagle County water is hard! About 20 grains. I do have a top of the line whole house filtration system providing delicious water. However, it does not remove calcium! Dishes out of the dishwasher had a white haze and water spots. After considerable research on salt-based water softeners with local companies and online, I found discount water softeners to be a great and economical option. With Bill's help, we decided the type and size. The order process was easy, the filter arrived in two days. That's when it got really amazing! Assembly was easy, instructions concise. The control unit easy to program and best of all the water quality is fantastic. Water spots are a thing of the past. When the ice melts in the water glass, no more particles on the bottom of the glass. Not to mention the shower door...
    We had a slight concern about the water feeling soapy or too soft. That is absolutely not the case with this system since it is tunable to the hardness.
    My overall rating from order to good water is a 10 of 10.

    The ordering process was wonderful. The rep I spoke with was very knowledgeable. He answered all my questions comparing the different models. My Softener was delivered in 2 days. I love the feel of having soft water. It's too early for me to tell about how efficient it is, but I am looking forward to saving salt.

  • Easy peasy!

    Awesome customer support before and after buying. The Genesis system is fantastic! Easy to install with the connection kit they sell. The parts are all there with no real assembly needed. I opened the box and had it ready for installation in 2 minutes. Its been running now and it uses like no salt. Love this water softener. Already showed 2 relatives. Thank you again!!!

    This softener has been amazing. I didn't think it would be able to handle the amount of people and hardness we had, but it's been working quite well. It was worth every penny, even though we paid thousands less than Culligan quoted us for a similar system.
