Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cablecop filtering great. Water Hammer bad
Have lived in this home for 29 years. Put in the whole house filter about a year ago and watched the filter become chocolate color around 3 months. Changed the filter, great. Started to wonder why I was getting "Water Hammer" on cold faucets constantly. Called the plumber and he wanted to put in a pressure regulator for $350. I passed. Pressure is 90psi. High I know. But it has always been. I'm online buying new filters for my unit and notice 3 others mention water hammer.Then they mention the bypass position stops the hammer! Swell. Bypass, no hammer. Filter, double hammer. Well what to do? Not going to buy the GXWH35L as was suggested.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hairbrain Better than expected, twice the quality of locally available, thin plastic brands at box stores. Does not come with a 1" to 3/4 reducer so be sure to purchase two ( about a buck each) if you have a 3/4 supply line.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rickdonna This whole house filter is the best. It has a water shut off valve
This whole house filter is the best. It has a water shut off valve so you don't have to shut the water off from the main. Great feature. Especially if you are on well but I would think a good function even if you are not. Also the clear design incurables you to see the filter. Not much good for us because as soon as we start running it turns orange because of all the clay. But shows it is filtering it! The price is right!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Difficult to replace filter - Canister Leaks
Would not buy this again. Every time you replace filter which can be often, it leaks! from canister They need to design a better, leak proof system. What a pain to deal with a water leak.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ajb1 Excellent
I have had my system now for 4-5 years and haven't had a single issue with it. It was easy to install and it's very easy to use. Buy the clear one so you can see how dirty the filter gets. Otherwise it's pretty much a guessing game on when the filter needs changing. Filter is often quite dirty before there is a significant drop in water pressure.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Vinnie Hard filter change, leaky bypass and short warranty
The unit does do the job, the filter starts to turn orange almost immediately and after 2-3 months, it's completely covered in iron particles giving it the color of rusted metal. But the filter housing unit (clear canister) is extremely hard to remove even with lubricant (food grade) applied to gasket and it would be next to impossible for anyone that isn't very strong to do so. Potential future problems would be the head unit (part that connects to plumbing) breaking due to repeated forcible canister removal for filter changes. Another problem is that after about 6 filter changes, the bypass valve is leaking more with each filter change and there is no replacing it according to GE. Their recommendation is to turn the water off completely which is not a big issue for myself as the unit is installed immediately after the shut-off valve in the basement. The timer has never worked not even right out of the box. The warranty is only one year (return to retailer for exchange with new or refurbished unit) with no option to purchase an extended warranty so I would not recommend this unit.
