Questions & Answers

I was told that the water we drink will be a little salty with this system that I would need to install a water purfier under the sink is this true?

Asked by: Doll
Water purifiers won't help. Softeners add sodium or potassium to the water (depending on the type "salt" you use). Run the softener to the hot water heater ONLY; increase the setting appropriately. If you run the whole house water system through the softener, then you ingest more sodium, and everything your system water touches (outside landscaping, cars during washing/rinsing, etc) get salted also. Not a smart thing to do. [BTW, in the Midwest, many older homes have "hard water taps" at the kitchen sink to allow unsoftened water to be drawn; HINT HINT.]

Is there a filter that has to be changed, how often, and how much is it?
Asked by: Jan
The water softener is self cleaning during the regeneration cycle. No "add in" filter. Most all softeners are made like this one.

Customer Reviews

30,000 Grain Water Softener is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 941.

The actual product is satisfactory, it was the store delivery which was completely unsatisfactory. We secured the last water softener available at our local store, and we assumed it would show up in good order, but when it was delivered it had obviously been gouged by a forklift during the loading process. The internal tank was knocked loose from it's mounts, and our plumber refused to connect an obviously defective unit. When we called the store, they refused to send a truck out to pick it up and deliver another unit, so my wife had to ask a neighbor to help her load it back into our SUV, since I was out of town. After taking it to the store, the unit was replaced and the store manager apologized for her having to do it herself, stating that the employee who took her call was wrong in not handling this correctly. Otherwise, all was OK.

I had this installed in a new home, knowing the high hardness of water in San Antonio. I bought it on-line in the store with the help of an appliance representative and had it shipped to my home, which was really convenient! I would have liked to purchase a 20,000 grain, since it is only for 2 people. I like the small size and it takes up maybe 4 square feet in the garage closet. I like the integrated lid, which just lifts up for salt refills - no lid to take off and put on the floor. My only criticism is the $700 cost to install (house was pre-plumbed), which is competitive for this area. I know it will pay off in the long run, saving my pipes and fixtures from lime buildup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Water Softener Upgrade! My water softener quit working and Yuk, could not stand to even take a shower as my city water from Aqua Ohio is 12 gpg, i.e., very hard... Went to Home Depot, the plumbing guys were extremely helpful in the Boardman, Ohio store, suggested new plumbing hookup flex pipes that just clamped on my existing 3/4" plumbing pipes and hooked right up to the new water softener... Ran the included overflow and recharge drain lines over to the hose leading to my basement floor drain, filled the salt bin up to level 7, did the setup as instructed on the enclosed instructions and bam, I was back in business within an hour after a recharge was complete... Very simple to install and it works like a champ... best part, my Boardman, Ohio Home Depot even had a big guy help put it in my trunk so when I got home I just lowered it onto a dolley and wheeled the unit into my basement... Overall, very simple to install...

It's only been two weeks, but so far the unit is performing as it should. we are really enjoying the soft water, and running the softener in "e" mode it seems to be using very little salt. the problem was (as others below have said in their reviews) that the unit was damaged during shipment and i had to take the unit completely apart to get the resin column back in straight. fortunately i'm a pretty experienced handyman and was able to do this successfully. i don't think most consumers would have been able to do this, which would mean a return and start over. furthermore, i had a question about reassembly and called the GE phone number in the instruction booklet. the lady that answered the phone was zero help, but said somebody more knowledgeable would call me back. that was two weeks ago, and i'm still waiting for their phone call.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very user friendly unit I installed this today and it was so easy. The set up is user friendly. The read-out is very helpful and easy to follow. By setting the salt level, the unit tells you on the read-out how many days to refill salt.

The product itself is great and it is still a little to early for me to rate it as It has only been installed for 2 weeks. It will take at least a few months for the softener to get a history of the water use in the house. Though the water is soft and is working as it should. Now the BAD...... The Company GE does not seem to understand that the filter tank inside the water softener itself needs to be strapped in or have better shipping materials TO PREVENT THE FILTER TANK FROM MOVING during shipping or even moving the box around. I had to order it online and have it shipped as my home depot store does not stock these items....I received it with the filter tanks shifted and jammed inside the softener and it took me about an hour to get it up right and ready to install. I had to take apart all the components on top of the filter tank. Now this is an issue I emailed GE on and I hope they look into it. As from my understanding many of these units are returned due to damage. Just a little zip tie strap or some type of packaging material inside the softener would save the Customer , GE and Home Depot a lot of headaches, returns and money....... Hope they listen and consider this a helpful review.....

( another huge mess i am guessing ... leaving me to deal with it ) a HUGE headache this project has been and it should have been quite simple
