Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

Unit did not even turn on when first powered up. The power supply was dead. It could have not ever been tested. I replaced the P/S. The unit worked perfectly when it got powered up.

Easy install and set up

Doug57 8/12/2020

This product was easy to install and set up! One issue I had was the height of the in / out water supply ports were actually 1" taller (measuring from the floor) than in the online advertised schematic. Thus, Instead of being an exact match for my existing water softener, I had to shorten my connections buy 1"

I have a deep well for water and it's very hard but the unit works very well at making the water soft and that saves me on soap and clean up around shower and faucets in the house.

100% better!

loulewloo 8/8/2020

So glad we bought this! It was easy to install, and it immediately made a difference in our very hard water. The water now feels great, not too slippery, just right. The dishes come out of the dishwasher so spotless. Putting in the salt every one in awhile is not a big deal, and it is so much more cost effective than having a service every month. We also have all GE appliances. All working perfectly!

J_C_ 8/6/2020

This replaced a 10 year old Whirlpool water softener that had a brine tank failure. When the tank failed, it sent the resin beads throughout the plumbing for the house. It was an easy replacement procedure and many of the internal components and plumbing were similar to the Whirlpool model it replaced. Unfortunately, even though the grain rating is the same as the model it replaced, the unit is much larger and did not fit in the same space without modification to the surrounding area.

Surfguy57 8/5/2020

I installed this unit myself with the easy to follow directions. I like the digital features and how it let's me know how many days till reloading of salt is necessary. The indicator light that says everything is working properly is very handy to just check it and go. Very good unit. .

Walter P 7/20/2020

My old water softener died after only 3 and 1/2 years of service. After looking around, I found the best price on a GE water softener at Homedepot for 1/3 price of my old and short life water softener. The installation was very easy and it works right out the box. This has performed perfectly since I installed it 1 month ago.
