Ecodyne Water Systems, a licensed Whirlpool® Brand partner, is transforming how consumers interact with their water treatment systems with the introduction of their new 46,000-Grain Water Softener with Wi-Fi Smart Technology. This innovative softener makes it possible to monitor and manage your water treatment system and water usage via a smartphone, tablet or computer from virtually anywhere inside or outside the home.

Wise water usage

More people are aware of their water footprint and taking steps to control their usage in their homes. High-efficiency washers and low-flow toilets are a start, but technology is taking water usage and conservation to new levels. Ecodyne Water Systems has partnered with Lowe’s Iris® to create a simple and secure online dashboard providing softener information at a glance, such as salt level, water used today, and average daily water usage. With the information, homeowners can track water usage patterns and adjust habits to save water and money on utility bills.

Peace of mind

Because water softener and refinement systems are usually tucked away in a basement, garage or utility room, they are often overlooked for extended periods of time. Low salt levels and issues like bridging and blockage can go un-noticed for weeks, causing damage to the appliance. The new 46,000-Grain Water Softener with Wi-Fi Smart Technology softens and treats your water while monitoring water usage, letting you know when softener salt is needed and sends you alerts if potential issues are detected, such as continuous water flow over a period of time or excess water usage above your normal usage. This allows you to make adjustments to save money on utility bills, plus gives homeowners the peace of mind that problems can be corrected before expensive repairs are required. This is on top of the inherent savings water softeners provide.

“Smart devices are becoming a central hub for monitoring and controlling appliances in today’s digitally-connected homes,” said Keith Johnson, director of product development of Ecodyne Water Systems. “This new softener offers homeowners a new level of convenience and peace of mind.”

The Whirlpool® 46000-Grain Wi-Fi Connected Water Softener (WHESCS) is available exclusively online and in-store at Lowe’s, with a starting MSRP of $697.00 each. For more information, check out the new water softener on
