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.

    I have very hard well water that didn't taste good and I was worried it would damage my new appliances so, I shopped around for water softeners before I settled on the Genesis Premier. The first system I found was $4k and the second was $1.7k for systems with less warranty and efficiency. Our Genesis Premier was under $1k delivered to my door. I had it up and running in under 1 hour. Now I love the taste of my tap water and my dishes come out of my dishwasher without those nasty hard water stains. Thank you for such a great and easy to install product.

  • Easy installation and operating as described

    Received the softener in good condition. Instructions were clear and helpful (so much better than the usual instructions provided with products these days). The Quick Pro Installation kit made installing the softer extremely easy. Programming the softener is simple and the display provides useful information to monitor the status of system operation (unlike the older Eerie valve). Everything seems to be operating perfectly and I look forward to many years of service from the Genesis unit. The only critique I have is the valve/bypass is a bit loud during the rinse cycle.

  • Great Softener

    I purchased the Premier High Efficiency Upflow due to its conservative use of water and salt. Our sewage is attached to our water usage, so this water softener will pay for itself in no time. It arrived in two days. The programming was very easy. I really like the neoprene jacket that zips around the softener tank that includes a pouch to store the manual. I am very pleased with this purchase! I wish that Discount Water Softeners sold the air gap needed for the softener drain line.

    They answered the phone promptly and answered my questions without hesitation. Received the softener the next day and had it installed in a couple of hours.

  • Good price, works great

    I have had the unit for two weeks. Overall the unit works well, seems good quality, uses minimal salt and was pretty easy to install. Right now the unit goes through a regen every two weeks which means I can fill the salt bin up and not replace it for the entire year. Water is soft, everything works. I also called DWS's support line and they were a good help.

  • excellent price

    I received the softener in 2 days. It was very easy to install and set up. My water went from very hard and heavy iron to like bottled water from the tap. Couldn’t be happier

  • Over all a great buy!

    Bought this unit after my old one died after 23 years. The installation was easy. The setup instructions were a little back and forth. (Read ahead). We are back to having great water and looking forward to see if we can go another 23 years.
