You can view detailed insights on how your water softener is performing by going to the Salty dashboard. Over time, Salty will begin to predict when you will run out of salt, so you never have to guess.
Salty lets you know if your homes temperature drops below 50 degrees, preventing expensive damage from frozen pipes and broken appliances.
Red color: WiFi connection issue; yellow color: low salt level or temperature; green color: everything ok;
Don't want to get out your phone or pry off the brine tank lid every time you want to check how much salt is in your water softeners brine tank? You can tap on the top of the Salty WiFi Bridge to see how much salt is left in your brine tank. The bottom of the WiFi Bridge will light up green when the tank is more than 50% full, yellow if the salt level or your homes temperature is low, and red if Salty is having trouble connecting to WiFi.
You can easily share your Salty device from the Salty dashboard. You can assign users either viewer or editor permissions, or transfer device ownership to them. As a viewer, users can view device data, such as the percentage of salt remaining in the brine tank. As an editor, in addition to being able to view device data, users can change device settings, like the device name.
Salty works with most water softeners, easily attaching to the lid of the brine tank.
The WiFi Bridge contains the "brains" of Salty. Connected by a cable to the Probe, the WiFi Bridge houses a temperature sensor for low temperature alerts, and a touch sensor and LED pair that lets you quickly view water softener salt levels. It also contains a processor that helps Salty connect to the internet.
The Probe contains an ultrasonic distance sensor that measures the amount of salt in your water softeners brine tank by using tank dimensions provided during setup in the Salty dashboard. The Probe mounts to the inside of the brine tank using double-sided tape. Like the WiFi Bridge, the Probe fits in the palm of your hand.
In addition to a WiFi Bridge and Probe, your Salty will come with a 3ft USB A to USB C cable and a USB power brick to power Salty.

We will continue to offer support for the Salty Water Softener Monitor for as long as we exist as a company. We will never charge you to access your Salty Water Softener Monitors data via the Salty dashboard.
The Salty Water Softener Monitor does not transmit any information about your home to Salty servers other than its temperature and the salt level of your water softener. We collect anonymous usage data on the Salty dashboard using Google Analytics.
