Answer: 
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. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes. The hardness number relates to how hard your water is in grains per gallon. You will need to have a water test done to determine that number.

Hello Phil B,
Thank you for your question on the GE 30,000 Grain Water Softener System Model # GXSF30H.
Depending on the hardness of your local water, at some point the resin bed becomes coated with hardness minerals and must be regenerated or cleaned. All GE water softeners are programmed from the factory to regenerate at 2:00 AM. How often this is done is determined by water usage and water hardness, Read More

Answer: 
Hello Bre,
Thank you for your question on the GE 30,000 grain water softener system model # GXSF30H.
Approximately 30 to 50 gallons of water is used during regeneration, depending on model size and household water pressure.
Regeneration takes approximately 2 hours, however, this will vary depending on model size.
I hope this helps!

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 339 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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, October 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple to operate I bought this for a small water system, 2 person home. Works great for simple needs. October 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smart, works, easy install I previously had a mechanical softener, but you would never know when it ran out of salt. This softener has an alarm to alert the user when salt is needed. Time of day is retained during brief power outages. Installation was straight forward with the included manual. Recommended! October 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Water softener Excellent water softener and price. Easy installation. October 15, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by looks great easy install easy set up g e is a trust worthy product my family has bought g e products since the fifties and i will keep buying g e. October 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eliminated all odors, softened, tastes good! I am so glad I bought this! Very economical way to soften water! October 4, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not Sure on this yet We are unsure if this item is helping or hurting or overall water system. I think it does both, depending on what it is. For example it is helping with softening towels and laundry, but it is leaving a salt water residue in the shower where there is a small drip. September 12, 2016
