From day one Kinetico has made all interactions with their company so easy. They are professional, friendly, and caring. When we first purchased our home in Golden Gate Estates we had a typical well system and the water was horrible quality. It was yellow, had a very bad smell, and was terrible for my hair. I would spend money to get my hair done and I would dread washing my hair in our water. Also the water pressure was nonexistent and horrible. The other issue was we were not able to drink the water. So we were having spend extra money each month to buy water in jugs or water bottles for us to drink and cook with. We knew we had to do something but didn't know what. We finally found Kinetico and they seemed like the right fix for us. They were so helpful and we were able to find the perfect water system for our home. The installation was simple and it was ready to use that day. The difference in the water is so amazing it is hard to even explain in words. Our water in our home today is crystal clear. In my opinion it is better than any city water I have seen. We can now drink the water straight from the faucet and it tastes like water from a bottle! We also use it for cooking and for our animals to drink. Now we don't have to spend extra money on water each month. The new water is AMAZING for my hair and skin. I no longer am concerned about washing my hair in our water because now it doesn't harm my hair it actually helps it. Also the water pressure with our water system is absolutely amazing, I couldn't ask for better! In addition to the amazing water Kinetico has given us with our water system, the service from the company is top notch. They service our water system monthly and make sure things are running smoothly and that all parts are in good condition. They offer an insurance package, we pay a small monthly charge and it covers the system, so if anything happens no money comes out of our pockets. This is a wonderful peace of mind for my family and my husband never has to worry about the system. The gentleman that comes to service our system is friendly and very knowledgeable. Also the women in the Kinetico office are always friendly and have helped us answer billing questions and all other questions we have had. The entire Kinetico company is beyond amazing and have made our experience with their company absolutely perfect! The best decision my family has made was to get an amazing water system from Kinetico, we are beyond thankful for the difference they have made in our lives.

Comment:
We had this product installed because of the super hard water we have in our neighborhood and the build up that formed on all our faucets. The installers are all local and everything was great until a pipe the replaced burst only a month later. Cost me $1600 for emergency replacement. No response from the installer led me to call Kinetico corporate. They first claimed since they did not install it they would not help. I was furious. With a lot of fighting they finally gave in and said they would help make it right, but this was not the norm. Customer service was down right horrible. Will pick another system when we move and leave this behind.
