Customer Questions & Answers

Is there a softener that will remove rust from well water? Jo-Ann

Asked by: Anonymous
It depends on what you mean by rust. If your water comes out of your faucet clear but you can smell iron and taste it (clear water iron) then yes a water softener will do the job. If water comes out red or brown and it smells like iron or sulfur (bad eggs) then you need to invest in a iron filtration system that precipitates the iron out and back flushes it away. Most paper element sediment filters will not anything since dissolved iron is going to me smaller than the 10-20 microns they operate at. A paper wrapped activated charcoal or carbon filter will do the job, but if you are also filtering fine clay (which is usually the case with a well that is iron rich - because clay retains iron better than sandy soils) that expensive carbon filter is going to get clogged in about 2-3 weeks (at about 35 dollars a filter it gets expensive.) Best bet for iron / sulfur in a well system would be some type of chemical precipitation in a fine media like sand. Most common systems use potassium permanganate in a green sand medium, this will also filter out and back flush most of that fine sediment clay should you have any but you will have to refill the KMnO4 tank and it is a pretty harsh chemical salt. There are options but water softeners were not meant to be iron filters.

Does it matter what you set the hardness number at in a GE softener

Asked by: Anonymous
The higher the number you set the more it will regenerate. It uses about 30 gallons per regen. YUou call call your water company and fing the number or buy a $20 tester on amazon.

is the regeneration based on time system has run or amount of water used in the 30000 grain unit?

Asked by: Anonymous
All the research I have seen on this product shows that it is based off of actual water usage.

30,000 Grain Water Softener System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 379.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good price So far the product does what it's supposed to do. Easy set up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installation easy, but 1" connectors a design flaw Relatively simple installation and like the features predicting when salt will be needed as well as warning beaps when the salt level gets low. Don't understand why 1" plastic connectors are used, when so many homes use 3/4" as is the standard for water heaters. Using a brass reducer/nipple is not only expensive but also an additional potential source of slow dripping leaks. Why not just provide a set of 3/4" and 1" plastic connectors to simplify installation, eliminate consumers having to buy expensive brass reducers and miminize the number of joint connections which contributes to the likelihood of slow drip leaks?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Very Well I'e been dealing with hard water over 12 years since I've lived in this house. I was tired of dealing with it and this seemed like a good softener for the price. It is a larger one than I need but better than too small. I do have plumbing experience, but it was very easy to install and program. It's simple and quick to make changes to the program also.The directions are clear and very thorough. It has a lot of useful features. I will be very happy if it lasts longer than the very fair warranty period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features & Easy Installation I bought this water softener to replace another brand that did a great job for 13 years. However, upon review the GE-GXSF30V had much better ratings, than the other manufacturer. I was able to install this softener completely within 2 hours and had soft water again within 4 hours! The control instructions are very easy to follow and the salt monitor is a very helpful feature! Thank you for another great appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Installation & setup. Works great. I installed this softener a month ago and so far so good. Never had a softener so had to do some plumbing. Once plumbing was complete, installation and setup was very easy. Used Sharkbite quick connection hoses to connect softener to plumbing. Filled with a few bags of salt. Plugged it in. Set time, salt level and water hardness. Ran sanitizing procedure and it was good to go. Have had perfect soft water since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use We thought having a water softener meant a lot of maintenance and work. Boy were we wrong. With the right person hooking it up, this thing does all the work and the maintenance in about every 6 months. Costs for materials (salt) is reasonable. Saves in hard water stains all over everything, which drives my wife nuts, and replacement faucets and fixtures due to calcification, which drives me nuts,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must for well water I have been leasing a softener for 25 years. Got tired of watching my money go down the drain. The installation was straight forward with easy to follow directions. I have been using it for two weeks now. Put in 3 bags of salt and it has barely gone down. The water is better than that from the leased equipment. If this turns out to be durable and reliable I will give it 5 stars easy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bang for the buck This unit was much more compact than my old two part system, Love having the digital readout that shows the salt level in remaining days to empty. Easy to set up and get going. I was looking for a model with higher grain number, but a suggestion that I didn't need it for the bathrooms that I have seems to be fine. One full bath, a half bath and a quarter bath.
