Build It Awards 2018
The Premier Compact water softener was awarded the best plumbing and drainage product 2018 by Build It Magazine. Our Twin-Tank non-electrical softener will protect your home and save you money. The judging panel said, “Kinetico’s Premier Compact water softener is a clever solution to a long-term maintenance issue that affects many self-builders and renovators – helping to protect boilers and other appliances from the damaging, performance-hindering effects of hard water.” Once installed the water softener services the whole house leaving taps, sinks and shower screens gleaming whilst protecting the inside of your boiler and pipework, saving you money on costly repairs.
