Kenmore Hybrid Water Softener Improves Taste, Smell, Feel
The Kenmore Elite hybrid water softener home filter provides premium protection for your family and gives you freedom from ever changing a filter again. Whether you're tired of over chlorinated city water or live in an area with a high mineral content, this system will let you enjoy crystal clear drinking water, dishes without spots and appliances with less build-up. The softener does wonders for people with sensitive skin, too. An extra layer of carbon works to filter out impurities that a softener alone misses.
The Kenmore hybrid water softener is easy to install with minimal plumbing skills. It's easy to maintain, too. Fill it with up to 200 pounds of salt and the softener will regenerate automatically. There's no filter to replace, eliminating a maintenance hassle.

Had a previous "deluxe" model water softener from Sears that lasted 14 yrs without any issues. Started leaking recently and repairs would be expensive, without guarantee as life of softener's are between 10-12 yrs. Just purchased the new Hybrid model, two filters (charcoal is the second filter) which we were told would make the water less chlorine tasting. This is only first week of using, but seems to be pretty efficient and we have not had any issues. Hoping this one will be as great as the previous Kenmore.

Relatively easy install. Disappointed that the water valve was not the same spacing as the prior Sears water softner that it replaced. Needed to replume to install. Had to download manual to program all the features. Water quality is good to excellent. Spouse would only drink bottled water but now enjoys tap water as well. Due to dual Salt/Potassium modes we've switched to using the KCl mode which will allow watering of plants and is more beneficial for us. Will have to wait to see if carbon filtering lasts as stated. Based on the hardness of 12 grains in our area and our water usage the filtering should only last 5 years before it needs replacing.

Replaced my Kenmore high-efficiency water softner installed Sept 1994, yes same model still available! Has a few more features and higher hardness treating capacity, but offers the same outstanding quality. I have hard water from my shallow well and these water softners take care of the problem with ease. I recommend Sears Water Softners, they are dependable, affordable, low salt usage,and do-the-job.

So far this product has eliminated the hard water, the system that was in place before was about 20 years old so we have a lot of odor still lurking, we are hoping that given some more time that will be eliminated as well.

Living on a well and having a septic system, we needed a softener using potassium not salt and one with an adjustable recharge time. There are not many on the market, but thankfully Sears offered this model. Hybrid means the customer can use either type of pellets and recharge doesn't have to happen daily, like in lower end models. Although the initial directions didn't include a sketch of the front panel, the extended installation booklet from SEAS.com certainly provided a much clearer idea of how to program this flexible recharge time and switching from salt to potassium.
excellent drinking water, softener works great. All my friends are thrilled with my drinking water and taking a shower is like a luxury with the soft bottled quality water. I understand taking a shower with filtered water is healthier
This was a replacement for our old Kenmore water softener which had stopped working due to a cracked resin tank. I have limited plumbing skills but installed it myself in about 30 minutes, including removing the old softener (the water connections were identical to my old system). The water filtration system works extremely well - this is the first time we've drank water from the tap since we bought the house over 7 years ago. We have terribly hard water with a strong chlorine smell - with this softener, not only do we have soft water, but it tastes great and there are no longer any odors, chlorine or otherwise.
