Kohler, a global leader in innovation and manufacturer of kitchen and bath products, is honored to have two products recognized by TIME as the Best Inventions of 2022. Kohler’s PerfectFill smart bath system and H2Wise+ Powered by Phyn smart water monitor take a prestigious slot in the Household category for this year.

Featuring 200 groundbreaking innovations,TIME’s annual list of the Best Inventions honors the most impactful new products and ideas that are changing how we live, work, play and think. The TIME recognition follows other notable accolades awarded to the H2Wise product suite including the Good Housekeeping Home Renovation Awards and The Architect’s Newspaper Best of Products.

KOHLER H2Wise+ Powered by Phyn
H2Wise+ marries Kohler's plumbing expertise with Phyn's industry-leading smart water monitoring technology to deliver a smart, home water monitoring solution. H2Wise+ analyzes the entire home's plumbing 24/7 to detect hidden issues every time water is turned on in the house and provides the ability to shut off the main water supply automatically and remotely when a leak is detected. The system's provided awareness can not only lead to cost savings and water conservation for homeowners, but also prevent catastrophic water damage.

KOHLER PerfectFill
PerfectFill smart bathing technology is a smart drain, digital/app controller and bath filler. PerfectFill draws a bath to a preferred temperature and desired depth with a simple voice command or through the KOHLER Konnect app, reducing time spent monitoring the bath as it fills. PerfectFill is sold as a drain kit (drain assembly and controller) and is designed to be paired with a Kohler digital valve, Kohler spout (deck- or wall-mount) and compatible Kohler bath.

To compile the list, TIME solicited nominations from TIME’s editors and correspondents around the world, and through an online application process, paying special attention to growing fields—such as the electric vehicle industry, green energy, and the metaverse. TIME then evaluated each contender on a number of key factors, including originality, efficacy, ambition, and impact. TIME’s full list of the Best Inventions can be found here.
