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 439.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Water Softener! This is the coolest water softener I have ever bought! It's so amazing and works so well! Because of this product, my water is soft. Very very soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install, easy set up! The local installations wanted almost as much for the install as the product, so I read the instructions and was already pre-plummed for it in the home. It took about an hour to have all the parts set up and had to just buy 2 flex hoses and two shark bite 1" adaptors for PEX to 1" thread. The Set up was extremely easy, the instructions in the manual walk you right through it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Out performed itself!!! 7 months old and still performing like new. Removes more iron then I thought it would. I have it set on normal cycle setting because we have a well system and rather use less water and more salt.. But it uses a lot of salt though (4 bags in 5 weeks)..? Very quiet,it's out side my bedroom window and I cannot here it. Very impressed with overall performance and it's low cost .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value The softener was fairly simple to install given that our new home was pre-plumbed for one. It took a day or so to reach full effectiveness, but has been working great so far. I highly recommend getting the proper shark bite adapter hoses (mine was 1" to 1"), a Ridgid pipe cutter, and a bare copper wire ahead of time if it's necessary for your installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install! Working great! I installed this about 1 month ago and it is working flawlessy!! Love the ease of installing and with a whole house filter that I purchased to go with it. As far as the operation, it has worked excellently. Water no longer has that hard feeling and my dishes no longer have spots. Showers are great and the soap lather is amazing. Definitely recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine unit- poor drain line It's been working fine for four years. The drain line cracked below the clamp under the hood. Salt went everywhere on the floor. The gears unit up top is solid rust. The clamp used on the drain line is very inexpensive and low quality. And these issues are the achillies heal of a fine unit. Now it's replacement time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job It has now been installed and in-service for a few weeks now, and all is good!! Easy installation, good features. I will do my best to get back to this site to write a follow up review on the performance long term. As of now, working great, easy to program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Only been installed for about a couple of weeks but I can already can tell a huge difference in the water. I used to be able to see hard water on the glass of our shower but now you can't even tell we have hard water. I would recommend this water softener.
