Best Whirlpool Water Softeners

Whirlpool Corporation, one of the largest manufacturers of home appliances in the US, makes water softeners that have stood up well in terms of price, performance, and usability. 

As compared to other brands, most Whirlpool water softeners have a rectangular plastic case that protects the softener tanks. Whirlpool water softeners also have on-demand regeneration technology. This technology is more superior to the time-based technology of other brands. You can get either a 30,000 or 33,000 or 44,000 Grain Capacity models depending on your demand.

These softeners use a combined brine and resin tank. In addition to this, whirlpool softeners use electronic control valves. These valves will keep tabs on your water usage so that it automatically regenerates. All Whirlpool® water softeners provide on-demand regeneration and only regenerate when required, saving water and energy. Typically regenerates every three to seven days.
