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.

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%.

    I installed my Genesis High Efficiency Water Softener myself and I'm really pleased with the results. I called with a few questions and the support team was very helpful. I would highly recommend Discount Water Softeners and Genesis High Efficiency. Thank you DWS.

    Glad I found discount water softener. I had limited space in the utility closet, about two 12 x 12 areas to install softener and brine tank. I was able to order 32k high efficiency with an 11 x 11 brine tank. Fits perfect. Couldn't be happier.

    We have a large family with really hard water and iron in our well water. For years I have dragged the green bags of salt home and down the stairs. Then I spent years begging my sons to do it. I ordered the Genesis water softener about a year ago. Now I only have to beg my sons to drag the salt down the stairs half as often!! I set the system for iron water and i don't need to pay extra for the green bag salt. Very satisfied after one year of performance. i had a little leak at install but customer support sent me a replacement oring and that corrected it. Great job.

    Bought the Genesis water softener. Same one my neighbor has. he has had it for over a year and loves it! He tells me his uses half the salt that his old Home Depot softener used. Man I am tired of buying salt and lugging it home. Can't wait to get this installed. Thanks again for all the help.
    Update: This thing uses like no salt. Water is silky soft. Love it!

  • Great Experience

    Reposted from Bizrate: Great experience. The Genesis system is already up and running. Barely uses any salt and I love that the mechanics of the head are the same parts as the Fleck.
