Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 55 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pre filter purchased as a pre-filter to eliminate sediment from well prior to filling water pressure tank February 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Canister failure. Same failure as experienced by others: hairline crack at bottom of the filter housing. Water spraying everywhere. January 26, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Flawed This was a four star product until like so many other owners, the canister threads failed. I have had the filter for about 2 years and have been very careful not to over-tighten when replacing the cartridges. The last time I removed the canister I noticed fractures in the threads and some of the threads were actually peeling away. It is shameful that a company like G.E. doesn't stand behind their product. They should offer a rebate for free replacement of the canisters, or at the very least make the canister available individually. Furthermore, I am disappointed that Home Depot doesn't hole G.E. accountable. December 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GE GXWH40L Whole House High Flow Filtration System EXCELLENT UNIT. This unit when properly installed removes chlorine, iron, and sediment. Had unit installed by a Plumber on 8/21/14. This GE Unit comes with a heavy-duty mounting bracket which a competitive unit does not provide for the same price. Decided to have a Plumber do the install, instead of myself. The Plumber had no issues with the unit install. Some previous reviews complain about not being able to buy replacement O Rings etc. Not true. If one read the directions, on page 2, item #4 gives you the GE Parts and Service number to order the recommended Silicone Grease....and when I asked the Customer Svc. Rep about a replacement O Ring, they gave me the part # WS03X10039 which I ordered two. I recommend flushing your Water Heater before installing the filter to rid the system of built up sediment etc. I also recommend using the FXHTC FILTER. It is more expensive but wll do a better job of filtering your water. After the install, my whole house water system is 100% municipal chlorine water smell or red iron discoloration in sinks, showers, or toilets. August 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Word of Caution Bought this product and it worked great up until the clear canister that houses the filter developed a small hairline crack on the bottom and water began to spray out. The bad part is that when I contacted GE about getting a new replacement filter canister / sump, I was told that it was not a replaceable part. The customer assistant instructed me that I would have to buy a whole new system. Doesn't make any sense that the blinking timer light part on the top of the unit can be replaced but the filter canister that screws on to hold the filter in place can not. I won't be buying another GE whole house water filter system. Going to try another company with a more reliable parts department. May 3, 2012
