Uses up to 25% less salt and water than previous Whirlpool® models by monitoring your water usage and only regenerating when necessary. 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.
Creates significant savings in salt and water usage by automatically calculating the salt required to clean its media bed and using only what is necessary. (Competitive models typically use a ‘fixed’ amount of salt to regenerate the media tank regardless of how much water has passed through the system.)
Removes a maximum of 140 gpg of hardness.
Triggers an additional backwash cycle to rid itself and your water supply of excess non-ferrous (clear water) iron. Ferrous iron removal up to 12ppm.
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.
Indicates when water is flowing through the system and may reveal potential leaks in your home’s plumbing.
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)
Allows you to easily view the salt level inside the tank.
