Water flow in your Kinetico home water system suddenly slows to a trickle — or reduces in pressure at all — it’s usually the filter that’s often to blame. While the filter should be changed on a regular schedule as recommended by your dealer, it may require an earlier changing. Having extremely hard water reduces the life of the filter. Using the water system frequently — often the case if you have a large family — may also affect the filter’s lifespan. Kinetico does not recommend making any repairs on the water system.
