When you begin looking for a home water filter system, you may be overwhelmed by the options available. One of the options that you will see is to go with a smartphone or WiFi connected water filter. If you have never heard of this type of system, there are a few things you should know. Here are the key aspects of this type of water filter and the benefits it may bring to you and your home.
Water Filter Connections
One of the first things that you may wonder about smartphone connected home water filters is what is connected and how. There are several aspects of the water filter that are connected to smartphone apps. For example, most of the connected filters will track the household use of the water filters and water source. They will also track the length of time it has been since the filter was changed and if the filter needs to be changed sooner or later based on the usage of the water system itself. You can also receive notifications for filter replacement or maintenance.
You may run into problems with your home water filter. For example, if you are experiencing higher levels of hard water, your filter may work overtime to correct the issue. These issues can mean a new filter is needed at a faster rate or that there are blockages in your filter system. These situations, with water filters that are smartphone or WiFi connected, are sent to you in notifications so that you can deal with them as soon as possible.
Some of the more advanced filters will have the option to auto order the filter when you need a replacement. This aspect of the smartphone connected home water filter means that the system will determine when a new filter is needed. It will connect, via WiFi, to your app or to the ordering system. The system will place an automated order for you and will pay for the order with a stored credit card. This will mean that you do not have to worry about dates and ordering, as the entire system handles that for you.
