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.]

Should the water completely drain out of the brine tank when the regeneration cycle is complete? In otherwords, is this a "wet" tank or a "dry" tank?
Asked by: timothyd44
Hi timothyd44- This is Sue at GE Appliances. It is not a "dry tank. It is normal to have approximately 2 to 5 inches of water standing in the salt storage tank. If there is excessive or a high level of water in the brine tank (salt tank), check the following: •A restriction in the drain hose will prevent the salt water from draining. Make sure the drain hose is not pinched or plugged. •If the drain hose is elevated too high, the unit cannot drain. The nozzle and venturi may be dirty or improperly assembled if it was recently cleaned. See the Owner's Manual for instructions for cleaning and reassembling the nozzle and venture: file:///C:/Users/214013018/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/INetCache/IE/HGT1RRFN/de1241cc-fc38-4750-a526-32940c6a2704.pdf - Thanks for checking with us!

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.....

Now that it was showing signs of trouble, mom called the Culligan Man, and the man wanted to get rich fast. He suggested replacement of the system for a small price of $1500. I've seen this GE unit on HomeDepot.com a while ago. The price was right and the reviews were good. I had it shipped to my parents' home. I then installed it myself and they seem pretty happy. The water is soft again and once I put in 2 bags of salt to start, the unit told me I'd need to add salt again in 99 days. The Culligan unit seemed to take 2 bags per month. Have only had the unit running for a week, but so far so good.

About six months ago I gave up on trying to fix my fifteen year old water softener and decided to buy a new one. When consulting online reviews of several brands, I found the same thing that I encountered earlier when looking for a new water heater - no matter what the brand, about half of reviewers love it and half hate it. I decided to go with the brand that I had success with several years ago in a different house. This smaller version of my earlier GE water softener was easy to install, easy to set up, and has performed flawlessly for five months now. Using the salt-saver mode makes a noticeable difference in salt consumption.

Internal components inside the tank move around during shipping and handling. Found tubular out of alignment either from Home Depot's handling or mine, I had to haul laying down, to rectify I removed packaging and tipped softener in direction it needed to move and it went right into place. Installed and programed easily. Definitely buy the rather expensive shark bite connector tubes which gives flexibility of install. Shark bite fittings sure have solved the problem of getting all the water out of line in order to solder. Tenant is very pleased with easy of use and quality of water, the babies skin has improved in only 2 weeks. I will be purchasing another one for my house to replace an old inefficient one.

Very happy with this water softener so far, especially compared to the older one I had at my other house. This one has only recharged twice since it was installed 5 weeks ago, so it's using LOTS less salt. I'm satisfied with the quality of the water, and noticed faucets and sinks looking cleaner after only a few days; using LOTS less soap and laundry detergent too. I was worried that the noise of regeneration would wake me up at night, since it's on the other side of my bedroom wall, but I haven't heard any noise at all--my older unit was terribly loud. Very happy & glad I looked at the reviews here -- saved me from buying a more expensive unit.

It was simple to install (I'm not a plumber), I used the recommended parts from the HD guy (Shark Bite fittings are AWESOME). This was a new install in a newer home that was prepped for the softener. I had to cut the pipes and added a shut off valve (shark bite too). Total clock time about 45 minutes including cleaning/prepping the existing pipes. I use this system again.

I don't use a ton of water as I live alone and it took the two weeks to regenerate, but that should be about right with the grain and water usage I have. I could tell the difference right away in the water, no more spotted glassware and far less soap use. So far I am loving it. The price is right and delivery went well. I would recommend this unit.
