FEATURES

40,000 Grain Water Softener Features

Demand Initiated Regeneration

Water softeners need to regenerate to continue softening water. With Demand Initiated Regeneration, Whirlpool® units monitor your water usage and only regenerate when necessary, minimizing your water and salt usage. Older timer-based models regenerate on a set cycle regardless of how much water you’ve used; which can result in unnecessary water and salt consumption.

Salt Saving Technology

Ensures that your softener always provides soft water for your entire home, while also minimizing the amount of salt used. Whirlpool® Water Softeners are the most salt-efficient units in the industry.

High Hardness Removal

Removes a maximum of 125 gpg of hardness.

Iron Removal

Triggers an additional backwash cycle to rid itself and your water supply of excess non-ferrous (clear water) iron. Ferrous iron removal up to 10ppm.

Low Salt Light

Indicates the softener is working efficiently and flashes when the softener is getting low on salt, allowing you a few days to refill the salt tank.

Water Flow Indicator

Indicates when water is flowing through the system and may reveal potential leaks in your home’s plumbing.

Ultra High Flow Valve

Delivers maximum water flow even when multiple water-using devices (showers, appliances) are in use. Connects to plumbing up to 1-1/4″ in diameter. (Connections out of the softener are 1” male pipe threads)

Tank Light

Allows you to easily view the salt level inside the tank.

Do-It-Yourself Installation Kit

Comes with detailed instructions and everything to hook up to 1” NPT plumbing, including a bypass valve.  You will need the necessary connectors and enough tubing to connect from the water softener to your existing plumbing, access to 110V electrical outlet, and drain.  See installation manual for details.

The warranty on this unit is: – 1 year full parts and labor – 3 years on the electronics – 10 years on the tanks.
