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.

Had hauge water softener out to my newly baught home and to rent one of their water softeners would have cost me 70.00 a month plus 360.00 installation. If I would have baught out right almost 4,000.00. I started researching and came across this one. Was pretty simple to install on our own. The brine tank was all messed up but we simply reattach the bottom cap. I think it's doing a pretty good job. I wish they would have sent water testing kit with it though because I'm not positive until I buy one to test water so I can't review and be 100% honest about water quality right now! My hair is doing alot better however!!!
My softener has been in service for about a week now. I will share my experience, just in case someone else encounters the same thing. After installation I put the system into immediate operation with no pre-charge. After a few days the observation was no soft water was being produced. I then initiated a regenerate cycle. I monitored this operation and was very pleased with the operation with all the cycles, and especially the backwash, the volume and force it exhibited. From what I have read this is crucial for preparing the resin bed for the next period of use. Thanks!
would give more than 5 stars if possible, low head loss and high flow rate are a definite bonus. Sold last one with the house so this is going into our new house, can't wait.
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.
