The Benefits of Softer Water
Soften Your Home’s Water
The most efficient and cost-effective way to save your family from itchy and dry hard water is installing a water softener that is proven to replenish their skin. Hard water can set the foundation for an uncomfortable day. Soften your water and start living comfortably.
Start Saving Today
EcoPure water softeners provide significant savings on the following: soap and cleaning products, gas and electric consumption, clothes, towels, linens, and repair/replacement of plumbing and water using appliances, pipes and faucets. In 2010, the Water Quality Research Foundation commissioned a Battelle Memorial Institute study that found a water softener can increase the lifespan of in-home water-using appliance by 30-50%.
Reduce Potential Scale Problem
Hard water build-up, or scale, can impact your home’s water pressure. Scale can also stain showerheads and faucet fixtures. Removing the presence of hard water minerals in your home’s supply can help optimize your home’s performance.
Who We Are
EcoPure offers an extensive line of water softening and filtration products to provide the purest, healthiest water for your home. From under sink filtration to whole home systems, EcoPure has a product to solve your 21st-century water problem. Start enjoying soft, clean and filtered water from every faucet in your home.
This EcoPure EP42 is an exact-fit replacement for Kenmore water softening systems.
The EcoPure system is identical in height to older Kenmore systems, in case your softener is housed in a cabinet. To ensure proper connection upon installation, you need to keep the old bypass valve from your Kenmore system. However, for the best possible fit, we recommend replacing the Kenmore bypass valve with a new one: EcoPure Bypass Valve 7345388 (pictured, sold separately).

Solving hard water doesn't have to be difficult, time consuming or expensive. Our softeners simplify getting the water you need for softer hair and skin, cleaner, brighter towels and longer-lasting appliances. The Eco pure 42, 000 grain water softener is ideal for families of 1-6+ people looking for a reliable way to soften their water. It eliminates embarrassing mineral stains, uses less detergent in the wash for cleaner, brighter and softer fabrics, and helps your water-using appliances last longer by allowing them to run more efficiently. Soft water also helps to keep your hair and skin feel healthy and soft. Eco Pure water softeners employ demand initiated regeneration meaning the system will only regenerate based on your hardness level and how much water you actually use, this results in significant salt and water savings. It will not waste water by regenerating (like competitor models) while you are on vacation and you will not run out of soft water if you use more water than usual. Eco Pure water softeners also come with simple to program electronics and include a low salt indicator light and work on city water or well water. Over time, water softeners also keep your water using appliances (water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines, etc. ) working efficiently, last longer and save energy. All Eco Pure water softeners come standard with a 1-year manufacturers parts and labor , 3-year limited electronics , and 10-year limited on the tanks. The full parts and labor can be extended to 2 years with the purchase of 3 bottles of Eco Pure EPCL water softener cleaner within the first year of ownership (sold separately). Text ECOPURE to 444999 to sign up for water softener cleaner reminders. All systems include installation kit, bypass valve and come ready to connect to 1 inch male pipe thread. Questions? Call the helpline at (800) 693-1138. NOTE: Due to variances in production and assembly, the EcoPure water softener valve height may vary by up to 1/2" from an existing water treatment system, including existing Kenmore or EcoPure models. This potential change in valve height will not affect system performance.

My horror story is as follows. Ordered the softener, went to install and found that the bypass valve was not compatible, contacted the company and paid $35 for the compatible bypass only to find out that the 3/4 adaptors were not compatible with the Kenmore adaptors. I was unable to loose the Kenmore adaptors and had to call a plumber, costing a considerable amount.
Definitely a much more costly job than anticipated.
I bought this unit to replace a 10-year-old Kenmore 350. The EcoPure arrived on time -- early actually (and right-side-up). The box looked like it might have had a few encounters, so I took some pictures of the box and the contents as I unpacked it. The unit turned out to be fine.
The components of the EcoPure are IDENTICAL to the Kenmore's. Sears never manufactured anything. Every Sears Kenmore appliance was made by some other company and then private labeled as Kenmore (and if you asked the Sears salesperson, (s)he would gladly tell you what company actually made whatever it was.) Having just installed this EcoPure softener, it is clear that my old Kenmore 350 softener had been made by EcoPure. Every part is interchangeable. Even the printed manuals for the two machines are nearly word-for-word and drawing-for-drawing identical. (I therefor harvested a few components from my old unit to save as possible spare parts for the new one --- you never know.)
The EcoPure unit came fully assembled. Installation amounted solely to making various connections. As a result, installation was simple. My in/out plumbing, drain line and overflow lines could all be re-used without any adjustment. Frankly, it took me longer to disconnect and pull out the old machine, weighing in at an estimated 300 pounds or more laden with wet potassium pellets (we don't use salt) and a water-filled filtrate tank. I could barely tip it onto a 2-wheel dolly to roll it out! In contrast, the new unit essentially just slid into place.
RECHARGE & WATER QUALITY
Initial recharge went smoothly, and after doing the recommended system purge, the water quality is normal.
This was a day-of-installation report. Hopefully there will never be a need for a follow-up report.
The unit works correctly, but I have no idea of the repercussions of resin 12 years old.
