If I install this myself, is the warranty still valid? I have a water hardness of 31 gpg and a 3 person household, is this the correct unit to purchase?
Asked by: Frank
The warranty is for the unit, so installing it yourself is OK as long as you don't damage it. For your hardness and household size, this one is a good choice.

I'm shopping for a water softener for my home. The first line in the online installation instructions says "The water softener requires a minimum water flow of 3 gallons per minute at the inlet" My well only puts out 2 GPM. Will the system work at all, or am I out of luck? What are my options?
Asked by: Prospector
I imagine for your well system that you have a pressure tank and/or storage tank? If so, your volume of water on reserve at any given time should be plenty to supply the system. Otherwise you would not be able even to take shower for example, as a low-flow showerhead gives about 2.5 gallons per minute. So assuming some reserve volume and pressure, you should be good to go.

How much does it cost for a plumber to install it?

Asked by: Derrick
This is impossible to say without more information. Where you live, who the plumber is etc. will all matter. The biggest question is: Do you already have a Water softener? If you do, and you are reasonably handy, you can install it yourself. It took me about 6 hours and 2 trips back to Home Depot. It was frustrating that this unit was not the same dimensions of previous model from HD that I installed 10 years ago. If you don't have a softener installed currently, you will need a plumber. Get an estimate before purchasing.

my water taste very salty. how do i correct that?

Asked by: randy
Can salt enter my drinking water? No. Salt's sole purpose in your water softener is to regenerate the resin beads that actually take the hardness out of your water. This exchange does not make your water taste salty or significantly increase your sodium intake.

This was a simple unit to install and has worked without issue from day 1. It provides good, soft water that makes soap suds easy and clothes are much softer and brighter. I bought the 40,000 grain because I had a 15% off coupon on on-line purchases from Home Depot. The only issue I have is that with our rate of consumption, that means that we will only need to refill it with salt once every year!

The installer did set the hardness level to 35 even though our water company reported hardness at 20 grains per gallon. We adjusted the level downward to 30 which is to account for clear water iron. A bypass valve comes with the unit so that you can water the lawn without using soft water. On the other hand you can use soft-water through a power sprayer when washing the car resulting in no water spots. There are only two adults in our household and this unit is more than adequate for our needs.

I'm on well water and just bought the house last year. I knew the water was hard, but until I got some test strips didn't realize how hard. I was about 15gpg. The install was super smooth, as I got the 1" FIP to 3/4" Sharkbite hose. It took me longer to find my cutter to cut the PVC to install than to actual hook up and setup. I do have to knock off 1 star because the injection molded plastic. At the bottom it did not sit flat, so I had to make a stand from studs to support the unit from the front and back. It wobbled without any support.

I've had this installed for a bit over a week now and everything has been great so far. It brought our hardness from ~30 gpg down to ~0 gpg from our testing with an off-the-shelf kit. The instructions to install were clear. I've never installed anything like this before and was able to figure it out without much of a problem. The few issues/point of confusion that I did have were cleared up easily with online resources. I had to make one call to their support line for a couple of questions and they took my call fast and knew what I was talking about right away to help. The only issue that I have with it is that routing the drain hoses has been a challenge. They don't include quite as much as I needed with it and it won't stop trying to coil in on itself.

Woke up Sunday morning to the neighbors telling me we had water gushing out of our garage and house. Run downstairs, hit the tile floor and there is 2" of standing water in the entire downstairs (1850 square feet). Go into garage, find the bypass valve flooding the house and garage. The plastic bypass valve broke internally and let approx 15-17K gallons loose in my house...... The Sunday before Thanksgiving and when relatives are all flying in.......

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Discharge line freezes I bought this three years ago to replace another brand unit that quit working after 15 years of service. The exterior discharge on the GE freezes when the temperature is below freezing and water backs up into the brine tank. I have increased the diameter from the 1//2' vinyl tubing to 3/4" PVC with no improvement. The older unit never froze with the std 1/2" tubing even during subzero temperatures.

Leaked water and salt all over the place, had a plumber come out three times and "fix" only to have it leak again once it cycled. Bought this in May, still under warranty I guess, but in seeing all the negative reviews on this product, how can I trust it won't do the same thing? Amazing to me they can still sell this unit!!!
