St. Paul, Minnesota-based EcoWater Systems, a Marmon Water/Berkshire Hathaway company, is transforming how consumers interact with their water treatment systems with the introduction of HydroLink Plus Wi-Fi web-based technology. HydroLink Plus makes it possible to monitor and manage EcoWater water treatment systems and water usage via a smartphone, tablet or computer from virtually anywhere inside or outside the home.
A simple and secure online dashboard provides appliance information at a glance, such as number of days until the salt is empty, cycle schedule, average daily water usage, water used today, and gallons of treated water remaining. With the information, homeowners can track water usage patterns and adjust habits to save water and money on utility bills. HydroLink Plus also alerts homeowners via text or email when the salt is low and needs refilling, and sends alerts if potential issues are detected, such as a continuous water flow above normal usage threshold. Alerts can be customized according to personal preference via the online dashboard.
“Smart devices are becoming a central hub for monitoring and controlling appliances in today’s digitally-connected homes,” said Chris Wilker, president of EcoWater Systems Professional Products. “HydroLink Plus offers homeowners a new level of convenience and peace of mind regarding water treatment and usage, and can also help to extend the life of the appliance.”
