Salt Saving Technology
This feature ensures that your softener will always be providing soft water for your entire home but also minimizes the amount of salt you will use. Whirlpool® Water Softeners are the most salt-efficient units in the industry.
Demand Initiated Regeneration
Water softeners need to regenerate to continue to soften water. With Demand Initiated Regeneration, the Whirlpool® units monitor your water usage and only regenerate when necessary, which minimizes your water and salt usage. Older timer-based models regenerate on a set cycle regardless of how much water you’ve used; this can result in unnecessary water and salt consumption.
Low Salt Light
This is an indicator light that will inform you when your softener is getting low on salt. When the light comes on you will be low on salt, not out. This will allow you a few days to refill the salt tank.
Super High Flow Valve
Designed for worry-free plumbing flow characteristics. Delivers maximum water flow even when multiple water-using devices (showers, appliances, etc.) are being used the same time. Connects to plumbing up to 1 ¼” in diameter (1 ¼” plumbing requires special adaptors for installation).
Do-It-Yourself Installation Kit
Softeners come with detailed instructions and everything you need to install the unit, including a bypass valve.
Iron Removal Setting
This setting will trigger an additional backwash cycle to rid itself and your water supply of excess non-ferrous (clear water) iron.
Sediment Guard with Internal Filter Screen
This feature will filter sediment and other particles to 70 microns and is ideal if you are on a private well supply. By comparison, a human hair is approximately 75 microns in diameter.
Water Flow Indicator
Display indicates when water is flowing through the system. The water flow indicator could also show a potential leak in your home’s plumbing.
Water Management System
This system allows you to view and monitor the performance of your softener and your home water usage. Settings include:
- Average daily water usage in the home
- Water used today
- Capacity of system remaining before it regenerates
- Amount of salt remaining before system runs out
- Water flow (GPM)
- Days in use
- Total recharges
