This is an awesome machine! Quite and efficient and the water treats is amazing. My wife was excited to find the chunks of mineral breaking up and out of her favorite tea pot after only two weeks use. I can only imagine the benefits to the rest of our appliances, not to mention our skin. Thank you GE.
Love the unit and the water in the house is wonderful! No more calcium deposits everywhere and the dishes from the dishwasher finally look clean. Only issue was installation. Even had Home Depot come out to install and they had a heck of time with it. Needed more tubing and had to install additional piping. Mind you, my home is only two years old so they were working with modern and up-to-date plumbing and still had a fit installing it. If you can get it installed, it's a wonderful product.
The water softener was easy to hook up. I did have a small drip leak for about a week that corrected itself. Other than that I've had no trouble and it performs very well. The water is soft and my dishes don't have spots. The setup is super easy, just follow the directions, this was my first time doing any plumbing with the house.
I bought this water softner about 4 months ago and it has yet to regenerate. I still have soft water, but i live alone so I do not use much water. I would recommend this particular model over any other models or brand. Easy to install, but the only drawback is the bypass valve is flimzy/cheap.
We bought it about two weeks ago, and so far its working good, water is much softer now. We used to have clear choice water softner which went bad and the new one was costing over 2000$, while this was only 500$. Its easy to install and startup. You should be able to lift the salt bag above 4 feet to pour it
Also try to get water testing kit as there is one setting that asks for hardness of water.
It does come with easy installation things but you should know how to solder copper pipes, if not then you may be able to use those kwik connect sharkbite copper connectors (visit local plumbing store)
Any plumbing job is cheaper if you can install things your self. I had to cut the pipes and re arrange them little bit and took me nearly 2 to 3 hours. Other than that everything is easy
Had it delivered to our front door and installed on my own - works great so far. I like the features that tell you how many days it's estimating before you'll run out of salt, as well as the beeping feature when you get low. Nothing to think about once it's operational. Easy to install and get up and running.
I finally had to replace my 10 year old GE water softner, And since the other GE did so good I got this GE softner. I have had this unit for several months now and it does excellent, and is easier on salt usage compared to the older unit. I started noticeing when the older unit was getting near the end of it's life that the water was not as good as it once was and that water spots were on things that our well water dried on. I found out the old units brine pump was worn out and the brine tank was leaking where I dropped a saw on it (Clumsey me) . So I got this unit and now all is well again. Clean,soft and good smelling water (No smell). Its a direct fit up to our older GE softner (35,000 GE grain) so install was as simple as slide the old unit out and the new unit in. I recommend installing a whole house sediment fiter on the water line before it enters the softner to help keep the resin balls in the softner more effiicent. Also this unit softens and cleans the water just as good as my friends $2000 Ra**soft system. I am very happy with this unit.
I loved the free delivery to my home. I had a handy man install it, It was a bit of challenge since I had a old system and the plumbing was differnent. But the softener is easy to program and I finally have soft water.
I installed this on a Saturday afternoon. The operating instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I had to get some advice from my Home Depot store on how to connect the plumbing but it wasn't too difficult. The softener works great. My family really enjoys the soft water.
Shipping was fast and straight to my door. Setup and install took less than 1 hour once we had the misc. plumbing needed to hook it up from my existing house plumbing. The kit included contains the drain hoses, clamps, grease, and grounding clamps.
The first one was manhandled by UPS and the housing was broken. We returned it to the local store and my money was back in my account the next day. The second one (judging from the condition of the box) was also manhandled by UPS but apparently faired better than the first one. My husband had no trouble installing it and I like the design. It sure is good to have soft water again. We have a well and some of our water issues include iron, calcium, dissolved slicia, and 13 grains of hardness. I would recommend it for well water which is usually somewhat tough to condition compared to municipal water.
