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
This is copied from the installation guide:„ "Water softening systems using sodium chloride (salt) for recharge add sodium to the water.Persons on sodium restricted diets should consider the added sodium as part of their overall intake. Potassium chloride can be used as an alternative to sodium chloride in your softener." „ I would have the water tested before and after the softener,if it's higher than you want,then don't use it for drinking and cooking. There are several options to do that,but a water purifier would not be my choice.

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.

Does this regenerate based on water used?

Asked by: Wizrad63
Yes. It says that it adjusts regeneration time according to your water usage. It is also very simple to start a regeneration whenever you want, to begin at that moment or to begin that night.

30,400 Grain Water Softener is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 531.

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.

Very happy with this water softener so far, especially compared to the older one I had at my other house. This one has only recharged twice since it was installed 5 weeks ago, so it's using LOTS less salt. I'm satisfied with the quality of the water, and noticed faucets and sinks looking cleaner after only a few days; using LOTS less soap and laundry detergent too. I was worried that the noise of regeneration would wake me up at night, since it's on the other side of my bedroom wall, but I haven't heard any noise at all--my older unit was terribly loud. Very happy & glad I looked at the reviews here -- saved me from buying a more expensive unit.

I had an expensive water softener for 19 years (replaced the tank once in that time frame) and when it came time to totally replace it, the technician who replaces my reverse osmosis system filters suggested I buy this GE 30,400 grain water softener. It was much less expensive that the brand I previously had. So far the water softness quality is as good as the more expensive softener, and it operates on more updated technology than my old one. It has been only a few weeks since installation so I cannot comment on its reliability, but the salt usage is very low for a two-adult household and I am very happy with it.

The water softener was easy to install, DIY installation with minimal skills and low cost of parts needed for installation. The water softener was easy to program and set up after installation. Showers are much more comfortable, and dishes and clothes feel and look cleaner with the soft water now.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works VERY well At first I was a little skeptical that this unit would not be "big" enough for my house. I have a 4 bath 4K sqft home. After 2 weeks running, the unit quickly began softening my water. It took a little longer (few days) for the hot water -probably because of the water heater. Very happy with the unit. It's also quiet. FYI, I purchased "water softener" hoses on amazon for the 1in thread FIP and 1in internal diameter. Worked like a charm - installed in an hour or so - but I was replacing a water filter with this softener. Also to be noted, I did not use the bypass valve because I didn't want any additional head.
