Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 190 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big improvement over my last softner I bought this to replace an 18 year unit that was the original water softener installed when my house was built. I love the single unit versus the separate salt tank in that my old unit had. I didn't realize how poor the previous unit was performing. I immediately noticed how much softer the water was after only two days. Dishes have less spots, clothes are whiter and softer. A huge difference!! I really like the controls of this unit and how you can enter in the salt level and it shows you about how many days the salt will last. It counts down and then alarms when you need to add salt. Great unit, love it. I installed it myself and had no problems getting it programmed and running. I have had it about 3 months now and it works as designed. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by God deal I bought mine at Home Depot for App. $447 and am quite happy. My last one , Brand X, did not work well at all and the water felt a little soft but not very. It also burned through salt like crazy. The company told me it was fine they tested the water blah blah blah and it still was kinda soft but not like soft soft. I finally got rid of it and bought the GE and t works great. It took about 24 hours for the full softness to come thru but it is soft soft water. My plumber friend installed it in about 45 minutes. Also the salt read out on the unit said the 4 bags of salt would run out in 119 days. The last junker used that much in a month. December 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best item I have this unit in my basement next to a water filter. I had looked at other units but chose this one. I am handy around the house and the water system is important to the house. I had called a friend and we installed the unit, a new water filter (I had cracked the old one while changing the filter) and two ball vales before and after both units. I have had this system for one year, it's very easy to add salt and change the water filter. The directions for installation were very easy to read . The entire job took less than two hours, spent the next three drinking beer on the deck until my wife came home. November 9, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by softener is great but fittings are terrible plastic fitting split spewing water everywhere in basement. still cleaning up the mess. switched to copper......hope it holds. January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job well I installed this water softener about 6 months ago, and it has been working great. We have very hard water in our area, and we can feel the difference in the shower and see the difference in that the dishes no longer have build up. I also like the feature that it tells me how many days until the salt is expected to run out. January 25, 2014
