Water Softening
Water softening involves a process called ion exchange. Quite
simply, within a water softener tank, calcium and magnesium
(hardness) in water are exchanged with sodium (soft water ions).
When the system can no longer make this exchange, it
regenerates (cleans itself) so that it can once again soften water.

Reverse Osmosis (RO)
Reverse osmosis involves the movement of water
through a membrane to remove impurities, hardness and
contaminants. It uses advanced technology to provide the
highest quality water for the most demanding environments.
All of Kinetico’s reverse osmosis systems are guaranteed
to provide the highest quality water for optimal
dishwashing, drinking water, coffee, tea and recipes.
The RO membrane has microscopic openings that allow
water molecules, but not larger compounds, to pass through.

conjunction with reverse osmosis and water softening.
•Electric filter series with a one tank design.
• Meter or timer-based regenerations.
Depending on water conditions, filters can remove
dirt, sediment, chlorine or raise the pH of your water.
Additionally, filtration removes impurities that can
decrease the efficiencies of your beverage equipment.
Filtration options:
They are backed by Kinetico’s outstanding warranty.
Filtration options include:
•Non-electric system that eliminates chlorine.
• Reliable. No timers to set, adjust, repair or replace.
•Highly efficient. No wasted water or electricity.
Macrolite® Filtration: (removal of iron and suspended solids)
A revolutionary, highly efficient ceramic filter media for the
removal of oxidized iron and suspended matter. Capable of
removing suspended solids such as oxidized iron below 3 microns.
Carbon Filtration (dechlorination and odor removal)
Kinetico uses quality, granular carbon. Standard
carbon selections are for dechlorination at high flow
rates. Sizing is based on local water chemistry.
Calcite Filtration (increase pH)
For water with low pH, calcite is used to raise the pH. Water
passes through the bed and slowly dissolves the media, adding
calcium and carbonate alkalinity. Water with a negative Langlier
Saturation Index (LSI) will be increased to a positive value.

Crop Bistro & Bar is one of America’s top restaurants according to Zagat
and winner of the 2012 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. Crop Bistro &
Bar is located in the heart of Cleveland’s historic Ohio City neighborhood,
and features a menu of modern American cuisine, built upon foundations of
flavor, freshness and invention.
Steve Schimoler, owner of Crop Bistro & Bar in Cleveland, Ohio, believes that
high quality water is vital to the success of his restaurant. But he isn’t trucking in
imported brands of bottled water from around the world; he’s using Cleveland city
water. So what makes his water so much better than what’s used and served at other
establishments? Crop Bistro & Bar’s water is purified using Kinetico filtration, softening
and reverse osmosis equipment. The water is not only used in the dishes Schimoler
creates, but it’s also served in a high-end, reusable designer bottle to his restaurant
patrons, which has substantially reduced the restaurant’s cost of bottled water.
Schimoler’s customers love the great-tasting bottled water and the exceptionally pure
flavors in his dishes, which he attributes to his Kinetico water treatment equipment.
Schimoler, who is a well-seasoned chef and food professional, originally set up
his restaurant’s kitchen as a laboratory for his cutting-edge culinary research. He
understands how water is an essential ingredient in the food he prepares, whether
it’s the fresh baked bread served at the start of each meal or the savory broths
he concocts for his soup bases. “Chefs and foodies source the purest ingredients
to make high quality dishes. The one thing that is often forgotten is high quality
water to ensure the optimal taste,” Schimoler stated. “When creating great-tasting
food, it’s best to start with a blank canvas consisting of pure, reverse osmosis water,
so tastes and odors in the water don’t compete with the flavor of the food.”
At his restaurant, Schimoler has done blind taste tests of his breads, pastas, rice
and broth made with different types of water: well water, city water and purified
Kinetico reverse osmosis water. Participants are able to taste the impact of impure
water on the taste of the food – the off-tastes caused by the minerals and dissolved
metals in the well water, and the chlorination and hardness in the city water. “In
blind taste tests, participants consistently select the dishes made with pure, reverse
osmosis water as being the best,” Schimoler stated. “The purified water generated
from the Kinetico equipment allows only the flavors of the dish to be tasted by the
palate, without competing with hardness minerals and chemicals commonly found
in tap or well water.” He also noted that cooking with purified water is the only
means of ensuring consistent tastes when preparing recipes at different locations.
Water is vitally important to many beverages and dishes that are prepared
at Crop Bistro & Bar. The Kinetico equipment at this high quality restaurant
has ensured the purest water is providing the optimal taste experience for
Crop Bistro & Bar’s patrons. And the high quality water served in the designer
bottle complements every dish and keeps them coming back for more.
