Coway Launches Water Filtration Appliances

Coway has launched a new line of countertop water filtration appliances at the International Home + Housewares Show.

The line includes the Coway Aquamega 100 and Aquamega 200. The Aquamega 100 features a three-stage filtration system with WQA-qualified water filtration technology. The water filter is said to remove up to 99.99% of contaminants including cysts, lead, chlorine and chloramine. It features a cordless design, and can be connected to kitchen faucets. It is currently available at Amazon for a suggested retail price of $249.

The Aquamega 200 features a dual filtration system. It also features connectivity to the Coway app, filter replacement indicator, automatic one-touch water dispensing, touch controls and energy savings with instant heat and thermoelectric cooling. Water is dispensed in one of three temperatures, ambient, cold or hot. It will be available in early 2018 and carries a suggested retail price of $649.

In addition, at the show Coway announced that its Airmega indoor air purifiers are now integrated with Amazon Dash Replenishment. Dash Replenishment enables connected devices to automatically reorder parts and supplies when needed.

In order to enable this technology, Coway teamed up with Amazon to update the Airmega app, which currently works with Coway’s Airmega 300S and 400S models. The app tracks the status of the air filter on a daily basis via sensor technology, and with Dash Replenishment, the purifier will automatically reorder filters when they need replacing.

“We’re excited to expand our integration with Amazon by not only being Alexa-friendly, but also integrated with Dash Replenishment,” said Kevin Shim, director of North American sales for Coway Airmega’s parent company, Coway. “Replacing air filters on time is critical to ensuring that customers are breathing in clean, pure air. We look forward to offering more technology-friendly updates to help our customers more deeply sync Coway Airmega to their smart home.”
