The Kinetico K-60 is a water softener system that works without electricity and generates soft water based on actual water usage. The unit has multiple tanks to allow one tank to regenerate water while another tank dispenses softened water. The systems are sold on the Internet, through select dealers and in some home retail stores, and come with a limited warranty. After the water system has been installed, operating the unit is fairly easy and straightforward.

  1. 1

    Turn off the water supply to the Kinetico water system and close the valve. Set a container under the pre-filter housing and press the red button on top of the filter housing.

  2. 2

    Unscrew the filter clockwise and remove carefully, because the filter will be very wet.

  3. 3

    Set a new pre-filter into the housing and make sure the black O-ring is still in position at the top of the housing.

  4. 4

    Screw the filter housing counterclockwise until tightly closed. Restore water to the unit.

  5. 5

    Add salt to the unit by pressing the bypass lever to "Off" and turning on a nearby faucet. Wait several minutes to allow the pressure to clear, then turn the water off. Use a Philips-head screwdriver to push down on the softener valve screw on the top of the unit and turn clockwise until the indicator dot points to "Brine." At least five clicks will sound while turning the valve. Turn the bypass valve to the "Service" position and water will start flowing through the unit.
