Installing Kinetico block salt for your water softener: some facts to know

Kinetico block salt

Are you facing a hard water problem? Well, that will no longer be the case thanks to Kinetico water softeners. But in order to keep that soft, luxurious water flowing, your softener needs a key ingredient—Kinetico block salt! Let’s walk you through the simple process of installing it.

Tools you’ll need:

  • Block salt (available at most hardware stores or online)
  • Strong gloves (optional but recommended for grip)

Steps to install Kinetico block salt:

  • Locate the brine tank: Your brine tank is typically a large cylindrical tank next to your Kinetico softener. It might have a black or clear lid.
  • Check the salt level: Take a peek inside the tank. If you see a red line or grid at the bottom, it’s time for a refill!
  • Open the lid: Most lids lift off or have a latch. Be careful, there might be residual water in the tank.
  • Salt time! Grab a block of Kinetico salt – the handy grips make it easy to hold.
  • Stack the block salt vertically: Place the block salt vertically inside the tank, with the grips facing you. You can usually fit two or three blocks, depending on your tank size. Don’t worry about arranging the blocks perfectly, they’ll dissolve evenly.
  • Close the lid and relax! Pop the lid back on, and you’re done. Your Kinetico softener will use salt to keep your water sparkling.

After refilling the salt, initiate a manual regeneration cycle (consult your Kinetico manual for instructions). This helps ensure the new salt dissolves properly.

How to choose the right Kinetico block salt?

Selecting the right block salt for your water softener can be difficult, so consider these factors before choosing: 

  • Hardness of water
  • Size/type of the Kinetico water softener
