Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Installation I installed this unit last night and from the time I pulled it out of the box until the sanitation regeneration was complete it was 4 hours. January 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Bought this water softener around 3 months ago, the installation was very easy (did it myself) and it has been working great.   December 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best softener and more intelligent and efficient We have a big house with 4.5 baths. This unit works superbly with my extra hard water. I run it with a pre filter, which I might even re-plumb to post filters, as this unit can flush sediment, which my old unit didnt do. I like the fluch and backwash features that keep this unit clean, and my water from tasting like salt. Definitely uses less salt than other units! December 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well but still have a gripe with Hime Depot Easy to install & makes tremendous improvement in quality of water, but still do not understand why 45,000 grain softener was so much more expensive than 40,000 grain softener. Based in plumber's recommendation, purchased 45,000 grain but still annoyed at what seems like a poor value. Also have issue (previously expressed) at ability to receive 10% veterans discount on 40,000 grain because it is "in-stock" but receiving no discount on 45,000 grain because it is "on-line only" even when using ship-to-store. I appreciate Home Depot's generosity with 10% in-store discount but cannot understand closed-minded attitude toward refusing discount for on-line-only items even if shipped to store where verification of veteran's credential's could be done.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Uses too much salt, effectiveness deminished... Noticed immediately that this unit used way more salt than I was used to with my outdated Culligan equipment (worked great for 14 years!). Also, after just 2 years my water is back to being hard and full of iron (stains back in toilet). Will not be purchasing from GE again, they should stick to light bulbs. January 15, 2013
