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.

Very Well design product!

Khanjanb 8/27/2020

Well design product, Very easy to install. I'm just a handy person with some knowledge of tools. I was able to install the whole unit in less than 3 hours (I beleive a good plumber will do it in less than an hour. but it would have cost me $1200) LED display and programming is very easy. I watched the GE video for 2 minutes and 2 minutes to set up my softener. Great job GE Team! Keep up the good work.

Great softener took care of iron smell

Charles F 8/26/2020

My wife and I bought and installed this softener to get rid of very hard water and iron smell. The softener does a great job. It was very easy to adjust the softness of the water. The installation was well detailed in the instructions.

When it works, it works

Jane collective 8/26/2020

This is the second model I've purchased. The first one worked great for 3 years until one day it just started discharging water and never stopped. The troubleshooting solutions didn't work and the warranty was long gone. I bought another one because the plumbing was all set up and ready to go, and because the first model actually did a great job when it was working. My well water has both types of iron and it stinks. The softener decreases the smell to nearly non existent, and really reduced the iron. I don't need to buy special, abrasive cleaning solutions to remove awful iron stains or prevent my white clothes from turning orange. Also, we can feel the difference during showers and washing hair. The hair actually feels like it's getting thoroughly wet, unlike when we had hard water and it took a lot to make it feel saturated. I'm not sure if another make/model in the same price range would perform as well, considering that my well water seems to be the worst type of hard water in all sorts of ways and this model did a pretty good job against it.

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"

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.
