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.

Install was Easy!

Spitfire250 6/20/2022

So the install was a snap. The only problem is I can't within the app see water usage. I see GPM when we are using the water but no overall number of gallons through the unit. When I open the app and click on the filter I see a water usage table for a quick second and then it disappears.

We got this GE® Smart Whole House Water Filtration System a few months back. I did not think we needed one and still don't. However, I did notice the dishwasher seems to be rinsing better and less spotting on glasses and silverware. I have no idea if this is related or not. My husband is happy so I'm happy.

Filter works great!

BikeDad 11/5/2021

Installed this filter and immediately noticed that the 30 micron filter was capturing red sediment in my water. Gross! Installation wasn't hard, it essentially mounts to the wall and comes with 1'' to 3/4'' PEX fittings to drop down to the 3/4'' diameter piping required by the unit. I'm coming from PVC, so I did have to get a few extra PVC to PEX fittings, but no big deal. I'm not sure how much I'll use the connected features, but the ability to monitor water usage is really cool, I probably will appreciate that! Very much looking forward to trying out the other "intermediate" and "advanced" filter cartridges as well to see what kind of nasty junk I can filter out (we are on a well).

Works well

install was easy 10/22/2021

Got this for my sister-in-law. She lives in a mobile home. The mobile home park is a good park and well maintained. But they provide well water and they treat the water themselves. Hence we notice that the water can taste and look different from week to week. The system was pretty easy to setup, but I did have to go to the hardware store to find different adapters to get the water lines to fit. (This was more of a me issue I think). It has only been a few weeks in use and so far so good. I am excited to see how it does for an extended period of time.

Great System with Wifi Features

SarBear1 10/5/2021

I've wanted a water filtration system for my home for a long time, and am so happy that I found this one. Installing it was surprisingly really easy, and only took me about 20 minutes. It uses push to connect fittings, which is so much easier than having to use a bunch of tools. I also noticed that you don't need tools to change the filter, which is a huge plus. It feels good to know that the water that my family and I drink and shower in has so much of the lead and impurities filtered out. It even has wifi features on it which is so cool. It will alert you if the faucet is left on, and you can even shut the water off using it. I definitely recommend this; everything about it is what I hoped it would be.

OrlandoB 9/27/2021

Easy installation if you have basic plumbing/home improvement skills. With my house increasingly "online" and connected via apps, I like that I can monitor the status with an app. And with not-so-pleasant water in Florida, the filter makes the tap and my ice cubes taste and smell much better!

Excellent Performance!

Rosie23 9/25/2021

The GXWH70M is of excellent performance and value. This amazing device filters the water and the additional app installed in the phone allows for excellent up to date information on my house needs. This product is compact, easy to setup and install and provides an added sense of comfort to my home needs in relation to filtered water. I am amazed at how this product connects quickly with the GE phone app to produce excellent results. I highly recommend this product. The instructions are clear however my only recommendation would be to have a video link added to be able to see the full installation as my husband searched for a YouTube video to install it correctly. Other than that, this product is a must have for every home.

Improves All Around Water Quality

BekNYS43 9/24/2021

This GE smart whole house water filtration system works well and the instructions made it super easy to install. The system was fully installed within an hour and really improved the taste of our water. Although that was a huge benefit, that wasn't the reason we got it. We have a newborn and wanted to make sure that the water is super gentle on their delicate skin. Our first born had psoriasis issues and we wanted to take every step we could to prevent it in our new little one. The app even reminds me when I need to replace my filter. Overall, I am very impressed by this water filtration system. Whether you're looking to improve the taste of your water and the quality of the water, this system is definitely worth getting.

Aaron in Elkhart 9/20/2021

The entire system is fantastic. The water tastes perfect. There is are no odors. The installation was a little challenging, but if you can get past that everything else is simple. The information you get and the filter change reminders are greatly appreciated. If you currently have a whole house filter upgrading to this is a cinch.

This unit is pretty cool very easy to install I had no problems with that what do ever. You just cut the pipe and put this in its place. I actually got better water pressure. The water filter has a little window to show you when it needs to be changed out.

I didn't even know how much we needed a system like this in our home. So easy to install with the push-to-connect fittings. We live in a rural area and have issues with our water but not anymore! The smart features are so incredible and easy to use. We travel and now no more worries. We set up the notifications to alert us in case of problems. Easy to change filters. Remote shut off!! This is really the ideal solution to all of our needs!

Great technology and healthy water

plturner 9/14/2021

The GE Smart Whole House Water Filtration System, is beauty and function. The setup is easy and straight forward with quick connect fittings for PEX and copper. For galvanized, you may want to contact a plumber. It has a rotating pivot head that allows for flexibility in install with vertical or horizontal configurations. It filters the main water supply at the point of entry. It is recommended to replace the filter about every 3 months or 20 thousand gallons. It filters down to 5 micron and reduces sediment and chlorine taste and smell. There are other filters that can remove lead etc allowing you to adjust the system to your needs. Now for the smart stuff! It has an APP and is WIFI enabled. It has alerts for a running faucet (great for when we forget to turn off the faucet our cat has been using), plumbing leaks, potential freezes and filter change alerts which is amazing!

Hunter840 9/6/2021

Nothing but positive things to say about this whole home filtration system. I got this because my water used to have a terrible chlorine after taste. Now it tastes great! The only thing I'd recommend is doing your research or hiring a handyman for the install. It wasn't difficult to install but I can see it being more tricky for some people.

Great tasting water

Jbeard25j 9/6/2021

This GE smart whole house water filtration system works great and is easy to install. It comes with instructions that are simple to read and follow so if you have done any plumbing work or simple repairs then it should be easy for you to install yourself. You install the system at your homes main water inlet. We have always had off tasting water that didn't taste good to me at all so I would buy water bottles to drink but now our water tastes clean and refreshing. I really like the app you download on your smartphone because it allows you to set up and monitor your water flow, track water usage, detect potential water leaks, receive freeze notices and get filter replacement reminders. I am very impressed by how well this water filtration system works and it is definitely worth getting if you are looking to improve the taste of your water.

Unit leaks

Manuel03333 5/10/2021

After 2 months installation unit started to leak not from the oring or filter canister it's from the actual unit. Even worst has been 3 days leaking and unit hasn't detect the leak no leak message or notification. Very confusing because the app shows if you want notification for small leaks medium or large then at the beginning pop out a warning message stated this product won't detect small leaks. I won't recommend to buy this unit. Three days has been passed and no help from support.

Water filter

Ogrelutz 12/16/2020

This whole home water filter works great. Anyone with some basic plumbing knowledge should have no problems hooking this unit up. Our water always has a smell and a little off taste. With this unit the quality of the water we get is noticeably better. Its just more crisp and the obvious off of the water flavor is little to nonexistent. It has the ability to connect to you smart phone so you can always know the condition of your filter. Everyone should have one as it is one of the best additions I've ever added to my house. Clean water should be on everyone's mind because removal of miniscule particulates can make all the difference in taste and quality of all waters not just well but also city connections can benefit from this device.

I had no problems installing this water filtration system myself after having read the directions. I installed and set up the app, also not too difficult. I've been using this for over 2 weeks now and I've very happy with it so far. This is best filtration system I've had in my house. I really like that it's wireless and allows me to monitor water flow and leak detection from my phone. I did have to install an outlet next to this unit, but I am an electrician so that was no problem. My home is newer so there is no problems with the waterlines And they're easily accessible. So far, but m impressed. I swear my water tastes better now.

Should have got it sooner!!

SconnieDad80 11/30/2020

We LOVE our new water filtration and smart system. It has literally been a house saver for us. First off it was SUPER easy to install and get up and running. It was also Super easy to connect the app to my phone and get it up and running. The greatest feature that we found was the one that saved our house. The smart app allows the unit to notify us if there is an unusually large amount of water being used. This came in handy when we were out of town. Our App went off notifying us that there was water running constantly so we had a friend check on the house and it turns out that one of our pipes burst. We would've lost everything if it wasn't for the smart app. Not to mention this filters out everything in our water making it taste amazing. Highly recommend this product for everyone and anyone.

ngp1011 11/30/2020

I love my GE FTHTM water filter. First, you could tell an immediate difference in the water once the filter was installed, so much that I feel like I can cut significantly down on the amount of bottled water my household consumes. The installation was super easy. The instructions are spot-on and would be easy to follow for anyone who is a DIY'er or who likes home improvement projects. Highly recommended!

I received this item to try. I had a friend install it. It does take some plumbing knowledge to get it put in. Once set up and going it works great. The Smart feature on it the best part.

This whole home water filtration system is the best I have ever used. And I have tried a few. This makes your water look, smell, and taste like bottled water. It has to be healthier for you then bottled water. Not sitting in a plastic bottle getting tho's chemicals in it.

Easy install. Wifi setup not well documented

Chris0001 9/23/2020

Bought and installed this product today. Install tool less than 15 minutes with slip on fittings. Very solid bracket assembly. Replaced old whole hpuse filter with this system so pipes were already in place. Note you can change the orientation of the inlet and outlet by turning the inlet/outlet assembly on the back of the head unit. Nice feature! My only complaint is the wifi setup. In the installation manual GE points you to www.geappliances/connect which prompts you to install the SmarHQ app. This is not the app you need to connect this appliance to your home network. You need the Comfort GE Appliances app to setup and use the wifi features of this appliance. That information was nowhere to be found in any documentation. It would be helpful if GE pointed customers to the correct app for their products.
