Customer Questions & Answers

Took softner out of box. Softner is wobbly dosen't sit flat and the resin tank is leaning in brine tank. Is this how it is?

Asked by: JustMe
I had the same thing. It seemed like there was a little bit of lip on the inside bottom of the softener that the resin tank is SUPPOSE to sit inside. I leaned the softener on it's back and lifted up a little bit in the head of the unit and it "popped" into place. A little disappointed that it came that way but it was an easy fix.

45,000 Grain Water Softener is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 50.

Had nspected at the store since I read of damaged units. The top cover was damaged but decided I needed it regardless. I installed the unit myself and have been using it now for a month. I finally have it adjusted to my wife's satisfaction. The water is now soft and clean and the smell has gone away. Lately my toilets seem to be cleaning themselves. After removing the orange ring from the toilets they have stayed clean. The water through the filter on the refrigerator tastes amazing. I prefer our water over bottled water. Clothes are cleaner, hair is softer, skin feels better, so overall very pleased. Installation is pretty straightforward if you have plumbing experience and the tools. If you are hesitant at all, hire a plumber. Your main water line goes through this unit and if done incorrectly that could be a lot of water damage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Not as easy to self install as I thought. But once I built the correct platform to replace the GE softener that had died it was very easy.

After spending a little bit of time getting my existing input/output connections to match up, I plugged it in and as easy to program and has been running ever since. It does its job with minimal maintenance. This is my first experience with using and replacing a water softener (I moved into a home with an old, broken 20 year old beast I replaced with this one). This isn't the biggest one rating for my family size and use however, it did match the dimensions I needed for the replacement. So far, its basic program is working great without running at 100% all the time. I like the 'days to empty' reading which can help me plan when to refill.

I installed the water softener myself over a weekend, including a whole house water filter and plumbing 'bypass' for easy filter changes and system maintenance. At present, I've had the water softening system running for about a month and it's great. Start up was easy and the system has managed water and salt usage without issue, and appears to be dynamically adjusting to our water usage schedule. In terms of water quality and feel, the water softener has made a noticeable difference that has been enjoyable to shower/bathe in and reduced the hard water deposits common with hard water.

We purchased this water softener to help with eczema issues that my wife and two of my kids have. It has made a very big difference in their lives. We are a family of five and the water softener keeps up with us fairly well. Cleaning the unit is a little difficult but the affect it has had on my family's skin is worth the hassle once a year. Installing the unit was very easy. I used a flex hose and shark bites and was done in no time. Keeping the salt level high and checking for salt bridges every time you add salt is a good habit.

Install was relatively easy since the previous homeowner had a Culligan rental unit in the house. Total install took about 1.5 hours, including a trip to Home Depot to buy some PVC adapters to fit to existing pipes. I have a family of 5, and we have had this softener about a month. We put the initial six bags in and so far we still have another 20 days of salt. Based on the numbers we should only have to add one or two bags a month now that the initial system flush is done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GE Softener This is a cost effective unit. Works great. Verified this with water testing before and after. The unit does have a bypass feature but IMHO install the three manual valves suggested. HD did ship this to my home. First unit damaged no fault of HD ,HD stood behind my purchase no questions asked. This softener is the most bang for your buck if you have really hard water. As with any softener, kitchen is on RO system,with Calcium and Magnesium filter.

Cap at bottom was no easy task to retreve. It certainly had an ugly trip to New Hampshire. But a bit of super glue and a easy hook up so it looks like its doing the job. Fast service in arrival So happy to have soft water and without rust.
