Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No more hard water spots! We had old galvanized pipes replaced with new PEX pipe and at the same time had the GE water softener installed. Our water comes from a well, therefore the water was hard and left hard water residue on glass, sinks etc. This water softener works great! Wish I had done this a long time ago. I saw a difference immediately. Hard water spotting is gone and water feels great! July 9, 2015
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 Great Installation Instructions I was impressed with the installation instructions. Clear, straight forward, easy to understand. May 31, 2015
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 Noticed immediately that this unit used way more salt than I was used to with my outdated Culligan equipment (worked great for 14 years!).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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Energy saving & soft water I purchased this product a week ago. I am already pleased with its performance! We have extremely hard water due to calcium, and the calcium was wreaking havoc on our appliances! Product was damaged during shipping, but nothing that would cause any problems with operation.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Satisfied I installed the softener in mid Jan. myself. Instructions were easy to follow, however in my older home, I needed to do some adapting to the fittings. So I needed to use some of my plumbing tools most wouldn't have and make a trip to the hardware store for the fittings. The softener has worked very well right from the start. Couple of adjustments to get the softness level we wanted and done. February 24, 2015
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
