Why Ecowater


EcoWater is the world’s largest manufacturer of residential water treatment systems and leads the industry with game-changing innovations.


We provide the most comprehensive, no “gotcha’s” warranty in the business, because we manufacture, install and service the equipment you buy.


EcoWater systems are designed, engineered and manufactured in the USA. The vast majority of our supply chain is domestic, giving you reliability and stability you can count on for the long run.


We are obsessively focused on the quality of the equipment we manufacture, but even more focused on your experience as our customer. Your investment is backed by service and support you can count on 100%.


Our systems are designed to help you save money by using less energy and soap, while maximizing the life and efficiency of your appliances.


EcoWater products incorporate game-changing innovations that set the standard for reliability, effectiveness and attractive designs.


Our solutions reduce the amount of salt, energy and water consumed, and are carbon neutral. Adding a drinking system to your refiner will also reduce the number of plastic water bottles that end up in the landfill.


Whether you’re a growing family with kids, building your retirement home, or need to remove contaminants from water supplies, EcoWater has a solution that’s right for you.



EcoWater’s founder, Lynn G. Lindsay Sr. was issued the first patent for an automatic water softener in September of 1925. Indoor plumbing and the use of mechanical clothes washers helped fuel the market for residential softeners.


Lynn Lindsay starts the Lindsay Co. and the dealer business was also born. Several dealers still with the EcoWater family today, had their beginning in the water industry as a Lindsay dealer.


We replaced traditional water softening media with the first high-capacity resin – significantly increasing the water conditioner’s contaminant removal capacity and reducing the frequency of regeneration.


Regeneration was made completely automatic through the use of the first electro-mechanical timer with the Lindsay Streamliner.


The first all-automatic home water softener was followed by the introduction of corrosion-proof fiberglass pressure tanks and fiberglass brine tanks. These innovations led to first space-saving tank-within-a-tank design. This space-saving concept has been iconic of the EcoWater design ever since.


While we were breaking new ground with a new facility in Woodbury, MN, we continued to break new ground with introduction of a 5-cycle valve for reliable and efficient water treatment device operation.


A succession of appearance and efficiency-improving innovations culminated in 1979 with the replacement of electro-mechanical timers with microprocessor based electronic controls.


The company continued to expand its commercial-industrial product line and its global footprint into Canada and additional European countries. And just when the world began using email, EcoWater introduced EASE 3000 Diagnostics Demand Water Conditioner. It provided over the phone remote diagnostics – keeping consumers’ homes in conditioned water more efficiently than ever before.


EcoWater was the first manufacturer to utilize modern solid-state electronics for the control of residential water treatment products, raising efficiencies to new levels. We continued to lead the way in innovation by introducing the first two-way wireless remote for both a softener and RO system in 2007 – the HydroLink®


We raised the bar by upgrading our HydroLink® technology to allow our softeners to communicate via Wi-Fi, enabling both consumers and our dealers to have the home owners’s water usage, low salt alerts, and other critical information available at their fingertips, joining the ever growing group of connected home appliances.

The world continues to change and EcoWater continues to invest in research and development. We are continuing to find new, better ways to perfect your water, enhance your life, and improve your home.
