The Demand Regeneration technology in our improved Whirlpool WHES40 40,000 Grain Water Softener regenerates water when you need it - saving you money. This Whirlpool softener can remove up to 125 grains per gallon of hardness and 10 ppm of clear water iron, making it perfect for households with high levels of hardness and iron. The WHES40 soft water system makes maintaining and monitoring your water usage easy — a tank light on the softener helps you see the salt* level to know when it is time to add more.
* For peak performance in your high-efficiency Whirlpool water softener, evaporated salt pellets or solar salt crystals with less than 1% impurities are recommended. It is not recommended to use any kind of block salt in Whirlpool water softeners.
The improved WHES40 Whirlpool soft water system is packed with features that make it one of the most efficient softeners on the market. With its advanced technology, you’ll never have to deal with hard water again. Here are some of the features that make the WHES40 stand out from the rest:
Demand Regeneration Technology: Water softeners need to regenerate in order to properly function. The WHES40’s Demand Initiated Regeneration technology monitors how much water you use and will only regenerate when you need it — cutting back on both water and salt usage.
Salt Saving Technology: The WHES40 is one of the most salt-efficient water softeners on the market. The system recognizes how much salt is actually needed — keeping your water soft, but not letting any salt go to waste.
High Hardness Removal: The WHES40 can remove a maximum of 125 gpg of hardness, making it an ideal choice for houses with high levels of hardness.
Iron Removal: The system triggers an additional backwash cycle to rid itself and your water supply of excess non-ferrous (clear water) iron. This Whirlpool 40000 grain water softener can remove iron up to 10ppm.
Low Salt Indicator Light: A steady light indicates the softener is working efficiently, but will start blinking once salt levels are becoming low, giving you notice a few days in advance to refill.
Water Flow Indicator: The water flow indicator alerts you immediately to any potential leaks in your home’s plumbing.
Ultra High Flow Valve: Expect high water pressure, no matter how many devices are in use. The softener connects to plumbing up to 1.25 inches diameter.
Tank Light: For ease of visibility, a light is installed in the tank, letting you see the salt levels inside.
Do-It-Yourself Installation Kit: Installation of the Whirlpool WHES40 Water Softener is made easy with a do-it-yourself kit that includes a bypass valve and detailed instructions. To get started, you will need to purchase the necessary connectors for your plumbing, inspect the included installation kit and locate a nearby 110V electrical outlet and a drain. For a complete list of parts included in the installation kit, review the instruction manual.
1-Year Full Parts and Labor Warranty: This unit comes with a 1-year full parts and labor warranty*. Full parts and labor warranty may be extended up to 5 years with the use of Whirlpool Water Softener Cleanser (WHEC-WSC) — click here for details.
