Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference this softener made to our lives. We had a two piece water conditioner before but this works better. Easy to put in and set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kenmore®/MD Extra High Efficiency Water Softener Works extremely well and is very efficient on salt. I live in the country and have well water which is extremely high in iron. My old softener had stopped working and our water was an ugly orange color and extremely hard. Replaced it with this model and within less than a week, water colour was restored and water was softer than it had ever been at this residence. Would highly recommend.

How do I tell when a recharge was done or how much time/gallons are left before the next one? Also what are the two sun looking icons next to the salt level?

Asked by: 100LL81
Hello 100LL81, Regarding the two sun looking icons next to the salt level, these would be in the salt alarm column. This is the level at which the low salt light will turn on when the actual salt level reaches those icons. Low Salt Indicator Feature. This unit will not tell you when your last recharge was. You could call the Kenmore Water Line 800# and they can estimate, but the frequency of regeneration will fluctuate just like your daily water usage. Thank you for shopping at Sears. Have a great day!

Model recommendation

I'm replacing our Kenmore Super Capacity Genius Plus after serving us well for about 20 years. I had the water tested recently and was advised our total hardness is 20gpg, iron is 0mg/l, pH is 7 and total dissolved solids is 365 mg/l. We have a family of four with 2 1/2 bathrooms. What softener model would you recommend?
Asked by: Jay21

Water Softner

Do you need a plumber or is this a do it yourself project?
Asked by: Egger
Hello Egger, Our supplier has advised that if you can perform basic plumbing tasks, such as being able to cut and solder copper piping or cut and connect the new plastic-style plumbing, then you would be able to install the Kenmore®/MD Extra High Efficiency Water Softener with complete installation kit by yourself. Thank you for shopping at Sears and have a great day!

Correct Softener

The water in our town is quite hard. It is rated at 50 grains hard. Is this the correct softener for this type of water or do I need a different model? If so, what do you recommend?
Asked by: AG17
We'd recommend the UltraSoft 800 for this water hardness.

Right size/type

I have a family of 4. Is this tank large enough or I should go for the 800 series? Also, does all Kenmore softener has chlorine removal included? Finally, does the softener works 24/7? Or there will be down time in between. If so, will there be indicator during down time?
Asked by: ctomfung
This model would be adequate for a family of four with up to 20 grains of water hardness. If your water is harder then we'd suggest moving up to the UltraSoft 400. The only softener that features chlorine removal is the Hybrid sku 75590. This is a Kenmore exclusive available only at Sears, and again would be good for up to four. All Kenmore softeners work 24/7, with the exception of when they regenerate (typically once a week), and this only takes two hours. The softener's display indicates when it is in regeneration mode.
