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!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 303 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Sofener! This water softener was in the house that I purchased, and I was shocked to discover that it still worked and that it was still performing very, very well. April 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install We just bought this unit as its an all in one and a space saver. Compared to other units at different stored this was a good price and got great reviews. If you pipe this unit in I would recommend installing a triple bypass system and not using this units built in bypass valve as its in the back of the unit and a little hard to get to if you are working with limited space. It was easy to install like I said and fits/works great in our house! June 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good! Easy installation, with proper supplies of course. Hope this lives up to all the hype. June 13, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Can't tell if it's working I agree easy installation...a few shark bites and pex pipe and it went together smoothly. My issue is that I don't notice a significant difference....my water was hard to begin with (maybe 8-10 gpg)....but not super-hard. I programmed it at 15 gpg and have manually recharged it a few times to make sure. Recently I bumped it up to 25 just to see what it does. Wondering if I should have bought the 40,000 -Grain version. I bought a test kit at HD for $10 and results were inconclusive (possibly a moderate softening). I don't have a slimy feeling of water and don't notice the soap lather difference. Still cleaning my shower door as well. April 27, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy read controls. My other softener went out and my house was starting to look rusty. This softener has turned it around took a few days but looks better now June 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very easy to install and set up the best water softener I bought yet. easy features June 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Slick Great price on a nice product. Well thought out hookup procedure with easy to follow instructions. Simple to set as well. This was a replacement for an old worn out softener and has returned our water to a nice useable state. Very happy with the purchase. May 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by poor warranty, GE does not back this product - no one to repair! had been saving for years to purchase this with a GE whole house filter hoping to get rid of the hard water and rust stains from city water. VERY DISAPPOINTED! Broken - motor not running after 3 months! Call GE for repair and they informed me they had NO ONE in Tidewater area of Virginia to repair it, would NOT ship a replacement. The most they offered is for me to find someone to fix the water softener and they would reimburse me for "reasonable expenses" but would not state up to what amount!!! Too late to return to Home Depot! I am surprised Home Depot would carry a product in which the warranty could not be backed up! July 26, 2012
