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 and 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.

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

Works great so far

Submitted by Harambe - 9/17/2020

All parts were present and in working order. Big difference in water quality. Install was easy, but the instructions do not warn you that the discharge hose is under high pressure when it recharges. That hose HAS to be secured tight because it will shoot right out of a 1.5in tube and will splash all over and fill your basement like it did mine. Do NOT install like the illustration shows. You will have a mess like I did.

16 months use and it broke. - out of warranty

Submitted by Monica disappointed - 9/10/2020

I bought this water GE softener after my Kenmore stopped working after 15 years. Now 16 months later this GE started leaking and retaining water in the salt container. I am very disappointed. Now I have to pay out of pocket to have it evaluated by Rain of LV. Even the service rep stated "it's out of warranty". I paid $470.00 16 months ago. Just completely disappointing, this GE product is no good. And I'll be sure to share on all my social media pages in case you decide to delete this one.

Our AO Smith water softner went out on us and we didn't use it for very many years so needed to replace it. We've had soft water for so many years that it really makes a difference to us with out it. I likeed the style of this GE water softner way better than Smith.. and hope it will last longer too.

Sure beats renting.

Submitted by SYGL - 9/6/2020

Three weeks in and no complaints. Straight forward installation (a few minor issues but all on the house side). Programming take about 4 minutes. Uses much less salt than the rental & takes about half the space. With the cost of the rental ( including the "new" paper billing fee) this will pay for itself in 18 months, that includes the parts to plumb it in. I installed a high flow filter before the softener due to dark rings in the old hopper. Glad I did, after 3 weeks the filter element is quite dark (our water district is providing water from wells).

Submitted by Hil59 - 9/1/2020

I chose this because I have another one in my residence that works flawlessly. It was easy to install using Sharkbite fittings and took about an hour. There was a very small leak from the bypass valve that I fixed by removing it and using liberal amounts of silicone grease and reinstalled it. So far I am pleased with the second unit I have bought.

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.

When it works, it works

Submitted by 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.
