Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Solid and reliable

Jenny18 12/3/2020

We have some of the hardest water in our area and now, with our new GE water softener, we can finally have the soft water we need. Our pots, pans, and faucets and fixtures are now without hard water build up! Even our personal health has improved because of the soft water from our water softener. We will recommend this appliance to anyone looking to improve their water system.

Ididit 12/2/2020

I struggled to understand the recirculation process. Does it regenerate based on water usage or time; every day or every other day. Online description did not explain this. I was going to buy a different brand but decided to try it. I'm happy with it as it regenerates based off of usage. I really like the real time gallons per minute display. Monitoring this tells me when my filters need to be replaced.

Easy to install and even easier to use

Rgc87 12/2/2020

We bought this water softener based on the capacity and ease of use. I am not a professional plumber but it was a breeze for me to install and set up. The instructions were clear and easy to understand. Once I had it set up I ran a regeneration cycle and flushed the water heater and the lines throughout the house and we could tell it was working right away. It has run a few regeneration cycles automatically since we put it into service and has used very little salt. This is definitely a highly efficient appliance built by an experienced and reliable company.

joyful7 11/30/2020

We love our new water softener. It is quiet when it runs, easy to use and easy to read. The display contains good information to keep up to date on when salt needs to be added. The water is soft and even tastes better.

works well for the money. after a couple years the control panel buttons stopped working but the unit continued to make soft water. at year 8 the shutoff valve broke in half causing flooding and blaster the paint off the wall. expect to replace it in year 7-8.

Pauls7 11/25/2020

Unit was very easy to install and get operational. I did miss a step about adding water to the tank as it was buried in the numerous boxes and warnings. I like that it gives option for connection to be horizontal or vertical and to have the bypass at the unit. I wish it had a tank light. Overall I am happy with the unit

PeterBC 11/25/2020

Had an old water softener that need upgrading. This unit exceeds my household requirements but I expect it to perform well when we have a full house. I installed it and had no problems. My old softener had a timer to regenerate and never seemed to provide the soft water we expected. This unit had both hot and cold soft water flowing by the second day. I can already tell it will save me lots of salt. It is a good looking and clean unit.

Works great for 3,800 sq ft house with 5

Bob999 11/25/2020

Self installed this unit almost 2- years ago along with a whole house filter in our garage in northern Alabama due to moderate hard water that resulted in cloudy water and mineral deposits on faucets and appliances. Fairly easy to install with the right tools and a basic/moderate knowledge of plumbing. This unit treated the water perfectly and eliminated all symptoms of hard water for a 3,800 sq ft house with 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. No issues with the unit keeping up with a family of 5 with 3 children at home that take a lot of showers plus guests. Uses about one bag of water softener salt per 2 months with an average of 175 to 250 gallons per day usage and moderate water hardness. Zero maintenance issues in two years. I would purchase this unit again and would recommend to others.

Home Reno 11/15/2020

This product was perfect for our needs. The only thing I can think to suggest is to include multiple means to hook up leads into the unit. My home had 3/4" lines, the lines into the softener were 1". Home Depot does not have the correct hardware so you have to rig homemade adapters from PVC parts and Brass parts.
