Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ben GE 40k Water Softner
The online purchase process was easy. Delivery miss a day due to my address being new.
Installation was super easy.
And most important...compare to its cousin (the Kenmore brand) the footprint/rectangular shape of the GE is much slim. I recommend this unit if you have reduced space to install it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by truckerich Want a softener that works well?
Soft, soft, soft. I love it and wife loves and son loves it. I set my hardness 25. NICE. The higher the hardness is set it regenerates more often. Making water so soft. Pour oil all over your body and imagen how smooth that feels and Slick too. WELL that is what my softener is doing. Not with oil LOL but with the salt. Not hard to install. I went with the main IN and then out to HOUSE. That way everything is soft. The digital monitor will show average gallons use per day. I use on average 150 gallons per day. That's 3 of us and using washer, refrig, sinks, etc. Love it, truckerich

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andy I don't recommend - leaks water/salt from bottom
I bought this GE water softener at Home Depot and had it installed 4 days ago. After 15 minutes of running for the first time, water and salt started leaking out from the back right corner. It has spread and now salt is all around the base. It started about half an inch out from all sides and now it's a couple inches out. GE sent a contractor out and he came by today. He said he has to replace the entire storage tank. He said he has had 4 of these lately and he's not sure why, this same model GE water softener. The storage tank seems extremely delicate, like some sort of cheap plastic material. Now we have to wait a couple weeks and I have to mop up the salt around the base every few days. He essentially said that the entire thing has to be taken apart in order to put in the new casing tank. They reuse all the electronics, float, etc, and GE sends out a new shell.

We purchased the water softener on April 22 and for over six weeks we tried to make it work, we wanted it to work because it no small item to return. We tried every thing, the blending knob was not turned all the way off when installed so do that and maybe in a couple of days we will have soft water. Turn the hardness level up and maybe in couple of days we will have soft water and on and on it went until we were fed up and returned to Home Depot on the 10th of June. We purchased another softener the same day and install it is now Monday June13th and we have soft water from the new purchase. We spent a lot of time on this disaster trying to make it work to no avail. A total waste of time and money. However Home Depot did return our money. I should mention that I called to GE for help and that to was a total wast of my time. They would for a fee of course come out and check it but if they had to do anything to it that would also cost a fee. We installed the new softener ourselves as well and it works great so it was definitely

water softener was easy to plumb as I already had an old unit installed that failed.
The only dislike is the size of the foot print is a little larger than I expected.
But so far the unit is working like it should so I am a happy camper now with soft water

This softener is easy to install and just as easy to set up. I love the days til empty feature and the fact that after a month or 2 this baby adjusts to your water usage automatically. GE put great engineering into this system. I have well water with high iron content and this replaced an iron filter and the old softener. Could not be happier.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Penny Lane I love it!
I replaced my Aqua Pure two piece water softener with the GE water softener and I could not be happier. It seems the old softener never really worked right from the beginning. It was noisy when recharging, difficult to understand and program so it was not user friendly. The GE is as easy as loading a high efficiency washing machine in regard to adding the salt pellets, programming, and understanding each setting. Call your water service company for your water hardness rating.
