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%.

  • Super efficient on salt

    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!

    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.

    Great Website. Great customer service! The Genesis water softener I bought is even better! Being an engineer I research a lot of what I buy online. These guys had the best system at the best price too. They understand their product and how to help their customers. I called and they gave me all the answers I needed. I emailed and they got right back to me. The Genesis was easy to plumb in and program. Nothing but the best. Thank you again

  • Great water softener

    Really like how simple this water softener is to program. Replaced our old water softener in about 2 hours. Pretty straightforward project. The manual and install videos really helped.

  • Is working!

    It was installed a few days later it arrived, under $1,000 including installation. Price cannot be beat for the quality of the product, the salt seems to last. It has been a few weeks and it looks like the salt has not dissolved at all. The water feels smoother and so far so good!

  • Good Equipment, good install manuals

    Originally posted on Bizrate in January. System is still going strong: Wasn't sure which water softener to buy and looked at the Genesis system after reading the great reviews. Wow, am I glad I did. After literally a week of being installed in our house this system is softening the water and uses hardly any salt. With 6 people in our home we would use 5 bags of salt a month. Now it looks like we will use closer to 2 bags.

  • Awesome Support

    Culligan came out and wanted over 3 times as much for their version of this system. Had my buddy install it and saved tons.
