Customer Questions & Answers

I was told that the water we drink will be a little salty with this system that I would need to install a water purfier under the sink is this true?

Asked by: Anonymous
Water purifiers won't help. Softeners add sodium or potassium to the water (depending on the type "salt" you use). Run the softener to the hot water heater ONLY; increase the setting appropriately. If you run the whole house water system through the softener, then you ingest more sodium, and everything your system water touches (outside landscaping, cars during washing/rinsing, etc) get salted also. Not a smart thing to do. [BTW, in the Midwest, many older homes have "hard water taps" at the kitchen sink to allow unsoftened water to be drawn; HINT HINT.]

Should the water completely drain out of the brine tank when the regeneration cycle is complete? In otherwords, is this a "wet" tank or a "dry" tank?
Asked by: timothyd44
Hi timothyd44- This is Sue at GE Appliances. It is not a "dry tank. It is normal to have approximately 2 to 5 inches of water standing in the salt storage tank. If there is excessive or a high level of water in the brine tank (salt tank), check the following: •A restriction in the drain hose will prevent the salt water from draining. Make sure the drain hose is not pinched or plugged. •If the drain hose is elevated too high, the unit cannot drain. The nozzle and venturi may be dirty or improperly assembled if it was recently cleaned. See the Owner's Manual for instructions for cleaning and reassembling the nozzle and venture: file:///C:/Users/214013018/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/INetCache/IE/HGT1RRFN/de1241cc-fc38-4750-a526-32940c6a2704.pdf - Thanks for checking with us!

Asked by: bigthrusday
I recommend replacing them anyways. They offer stainless braided hoses in the store. You will need hoses with 1" FIP ends to accomodate the softener.

The only problem was that because of not doing enough research I have a softener that has too much capacity for my needs. GE used grains per gallon as a hardness scale. When I called my city's water provider and purchased my own water test, they both used the parts per million scale although neither stated what scale they were using. Because of it being too large it took a very fine hardness setting adjustment over a period of days to prevent scale build up while at the same time the water not having a salty taste. Luckily, this softener is very easy to adjust the program on, so I am very happy. My bad, not theirs.

I purchased in-store, the last one in stock. Got it home, got it installed with water/salt in it, when water appeared everywhere underneath. There was a hole right where the seam was on the bottom of the tank. Wet carpet, had to dig salt out of it, a complete mess. I called the store I bought it from and they had to refer me to another store for one that had in stock. I made the 50 minute drive to the Washington, PA store and asked to speak to the manager, Bud. I explained the situation and extreme inconvenience as it was my parents house I was installing it in and they were without water. Bud understood and was very accomodating in correcting this inconvenience. Thank you, Bud at the Washington, PA store! I can't comment on the softener just yet, but it seems to be functioning properly and is easy to program. I recommend checking the bottom of the brine tank where the seams meet in the center before leaving the store! Also, the clamps that come with the hose for the drain are cumbersome and hard to hold with pliers. I recommend picking up some worm gear clamps. I will also likely be getting a drain pan to put underneath just in case something should ever develop. I only wish HD offered an extended warranty to go with this. So far, water softener 4/5 stars due to the mishap. Home Depot Customer Service at the Washington, PA store 5/5!

Now that it was showing signs of trouble, mom called the Culligan Man, and the man wanted to get rich fast. He suggested replacement of the system for a small price of $1500. I've seen this GE unit on HomeDepot.com a while ago. The price was right and the reviews were good. I had it shipped to my parents' home. I then installed it myself and they seem pretty happy. The water is soft again and once I put in 2 bags of salt to start, the unit told me I'd need to add salt again in 99 days. The Culligan unit seemed to take 2 bags per month. Have only had the unit running for a week, but so far so good.

Old W/S was difficult to remove so had contractor remove and install new GE W/S. In 10 days of operation, W/S has performed perfectly. Particularly like ease of programming and "time to add salt" info displayed on read-out.

The product itself is great and it is still a little to early for me to rate it as It has only been installed for 2 weeks. It will take at least a few months for the softener to get a history of the water use in the house. Though the water is soft and is working as it should. Now the BAD...... The Company GE does not seem to understand that the filter tank inside the water softener itself needs to be strapped in or have better shipping materials TO PREVENT THE FILTER TANK FROM MOVING during shipping or even moving the box around. I had to order it online and have it shipped as my home depot store does not stock these items....I received it with the filter tanks shifted and jammed inside the softener and it took me about an hour to get it up right and ready to install. I had to take apart all the components on top of the filter tank. Now this is an issue I emailed GE on and I hope they look into it. As from my understanding many of these units are returned due to damage. Just a little zip tie strap or some type of packaging material inside the softener would save the Customer , GE and Home Depot a lot of headaches, returns and money....... Hope they listen and consider this a helpful review.....

About six months ago I gave up on trying to fix my fifteen year old water softener and decided to buy a new one. When consulting online reviews of several brands, I found the same thing that I encountered earlier when looking for a new water heater - no matter what the brand, about half of reviewers love it and half hate it. I decided to go with the brand that I had success with several years ago in a different house. This smaller version of my earlier GE water softener was easy to install, easy to set up, and has performed flawlessly for five months now. Using the salt-saver mode makes a noticeable difference in salt consumption.

The setup was easy and the unit looks good and saves space, I like the brine tank inside the reservoir versus being one of two stand alone pieces. The feature that indicates your salt level is nice also. My only concern, all the fittings are plastic. The bypass valve is also plastic. Hope they hold up. So far, everything is working just fine.
