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
YES.. Your captive air water tank provides more than 2 gallons a minute flow into your house. Your well just replenishes it at 2 gal per minute. As long as you have a good size tank, you should be fine. Worst case situation is that you have to replace your well tank with a larger one, or add another one in the system.

I do not have a drain for the recycle water. I have a sump with a sump pump. Should this configuration be adequate to handle the discharge water?
Asked by: Pappadan
I have mine go to the sump crock which is small and works fine. I ran mine along the wall and attached it using tie wraps lightly tied. Just be sure that the hose is above the highest level the sump can get to prevent other issues.

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.

Highly recommend the Sharkbite x 1" FPT hoses sold by HD. Biggest downside was the omission or reminder that a 120vac outlet is required, located within 6 feet of the softener for the transformer power supply. This outlet also needs to be a GFCI due to location within water zones (softener and hot water heater). Suggest that a minimum pounds of salt pellets needed for initial install also be noted. Not enough plastic tubing supplied for both the regen effluent drain and the overflow drain - only 10 ft supplied.

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.......

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.

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 water softener is fine, and I would give this unit a better than average rating, but not my experience with this purchase. What is not fine, is that when attempting to order this unit on line; Home Depot steered me to a third party manufacturer/installer that quoted me $2,295 for their unit installed, while criticizing this unit. Ultimately, I ordered this GE unit from Home Depot and had a local plumber install it, and saved approximately $1,300. It works fine. Don't allow yourself to be steered.

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.

This water softener is really doing its job,perfect for my big family, less hard water deposits around the faucets and tubs. It's the perfect size in the corner of my garage, i like the neutral color, most importantly it's quiet. It has easy to read letters and numbets on the top to set it up.My husband easily installed it by himself in no time! Great product!
