Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

The installation for this was very easy. Setup and operation took only 5 minutes. Previous GE softener worked for 11 years before clogging and failed.

Easy fit replacement

12/18/2018

Just updated my old GE water softener because of age leaking seal around top and buttons starting to get hard to make functions work. Bought this one because of the exact plumbing measurements of the older unit. Made installiation about a half hour project. Replaced the two included inlet and outlet threaded fittings to fit the new bypass valve.Old unit was 15+ years old and has worked great all its life until a few issues with the setting buttons and leaking upper seal recently. First GE was a replacement for an overpriced name brand softener that had to be constantly worked on. The rectangle shape takes up less room that the older round model.

Could be better

12/15/2018

I found that the unit becomes clogged very easily and have had multiple salt dams. I have very hard water and issues with sediment in the water system. When the unit is functioning properly it does an amazing job.

Perfection

12/13/2018

For years I had a softener that didnt do the job and was expensive to operate. It destroyed dishes glass showers and appliances. With this GE softener all of my glass is crystal clear and you can feel the difference in the water. If thats not enough it uses almost no salt or water. It will pay for itself in operational costs in less than 1.5 years and preserve so many other expensive items in my home.

Good for general purpose softening. Some issues.

12/13/2018

We have owned this model twice once in our previous home we purchased one for our new home but ended up returning it for a recurrent though correctable problem as well as for other reasons. The backwash cycle uses a lot of pressure for the outlet hose and can easily leak or rupture near where it exits the unit and a full cycle with backwash needs to be tested following installation. Once we corrected the problem in our first home we had trouble free operation for the year and a half we owned the unit. That influenced our decision to go ahead and buy the same unit for our new home. Following its installation we experienced the same problem. Also the plumber who performed the installation did not recommend the unit. Although it is more affordable it is general purpose one size fits all softener which does not purify water or remove contaminants or chlorine. In addition if your community water has a high chlorine content the resin in the unit may degrade over a sufficient number of years which may eventually enable resin to escape the unit and clog plumbing fixtures in the house. He recommended we replace after 5 years to be safe. For our water it was recommended to install a unit that includes a carbon filter for removing chlorine and contaminants. This may be an issue that only applies to the water in our local system.

Easy to Install

12/7/2018

I had a saltless water conditioner system for house. Although there were no scale deposits in any water fixture water still felt hard. Decided to install this system to obtain benefits of soft water. Installation instructions were easy to follow and the system was installed in under 15 minutes.

Easy to install but would suggest having a plumber do it for proper setting and could cause water damage in home if not done right. Tested water after install and flush of the unit and is working good so far Cant give a 5 Star as it has been just installed.

Easy to install

11/11/2018

Easy to install. Old Kenmore gave up the ghost after 14 years. This was a good deal at the Big Box store. Took a couple of hours to install just need to re-jig the plumbing which was customized for the previous softener. Only reason I didnt give it 5/5 stars is that it immediately filled up with water above the salt level 3 bags. Will see if it corrects itself over the next few days and will watch for softer H2O.

Easy Assembly Setup

10/3/2018

The unit was easy to assemble and setup. My only problem was the external plumbing work I did myself. Had to remove existing copper pipe to old non-GE unit and replace with Pex. Being a beginning plumber it took a while and a couple of trips to the hardware store. Never the less reworked plumbing assembled and started-up unit in less than a day. Has only been in service for a day but the water is great

Only problem is: having problem moving by-pass slider back and forth. Ours is too stiff to slide by hand and I must use a rubber hammer to move it back and forth when needed. Can this slider be lubricated with anything or what do you advise. Does a great job of softening our water.

Need adapters

9/20/2018

Just purchased based on other reviews. only issue is that unit is set up for 1 inch brass fittings. most homes use 3/4 in main lines and you may have 3/4 flex fittings on your current unit being replaced would be nice if unit had both 1 inch and 3/4 inch plastic adapters to use in the event you home is not 1 inch lines other wise no issue to install and set up quit easy.
