URBANITY / Water softener

Kohler Urbanity is a water optimizer combining a softener and filtration system to improve your grooming experience and long-term skin health.
The ion exchange resin removes calcium and magnesium from the water, reducing scale deposition to avoid excessive cleansing, keeping your skin hydrated and the surface microbiome healthy. The KDF filter removes skin-irritating chlorine and gradually reduces our reliance on skincare products to revive our skin with natural vitality. The compact, minimalist design fits perfectly into Kohler bathroom cabinets. The Kohler Konnect app allows you to check salt reserve, filter life, and leakages anywhere, anytime.
