    Announcing Our Connected Salt Level Sensor

    When scale build-up, appliance breakdowns, and soap scum take their toll, you decide enough is enough. It’s time to reduce the minerals in your hard water and kiss that calcium and magnesium goodbye.

    Many homeowners turn to the ingenuity of a salt water softener to exchange the mineral ions of calcium and magnesium with sodium. Water softeners treat many of the issues caused by hard water, with one caveat: users must replace the salt once the system depletes it.

    Proper maintenance for water softeners involves routinely refilling the salt for optimal performance. But if you’re not the type to set an alarm, the hassle of checking salt levels manually or waiting until your softener is out of salt can prove frustrating.

    That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our latest game-changing product: the Pentair Connected Salt Level Sensor.

    Softening Your Water Is Easier Than Ever

    This simple “don’t-forget-the-salt” solution connects to the Pentair Home app where you’ll be guided through easy step-by step instructions to set up your sensor. The Connected Salt Level Sensor clips into nearly any salt-based softener brine tank to monitor the salt levels, usage and battery level. Log in to the Pentair Home app where a useful dashboard provides this information anytime, anywhere.

    What Happens If My Water Softener Runs Low on Salt?

    When your water softener’s salt level is running low, the Pentair Home app will notify you on your smart device, so you can pick up salt before you need it. Not when it’s urgent.

    The Connected Salt Level Sensor, with the Pentair Home app, ensures your home and your family will enjoy soft water without interruption.

    The Benefits of Softening Your Water with Salt

    Whether you want to protect your water heater or you’re tired of the scale build-up in your plumbing and on your fixtures, our salt-based water softeners help you take control of your hard water.

    Our softeners come standard with high capacity resin tanks and an easy-to-program, electronic-metered head for minimal maintenance. All Pentair Pelican Advantage Series Salt Water Softeners backwash only when needed to help save water and energy and come equipped with a limited, lifetime warranty.

    Monitoring the salt levels in your softener with our sensor is crucial to maximizing your system’s performance and keeping those mineral ions out of your home’s water. Together with the Pentair Home app, the Pentair Connected Salt Level Sensor puts the power of water softening in your hands.
