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.

Not working

SC10 10/9/2020

This softener has not worked properly since I installed it. It has been using salt but the water is still hard. I have cleaned the venturi several times and tried different settings but have seen no improvement. I have made a couple phone calls to GE service and they have given me things to try but have not been able to get it working as of yet.

bobbysusie 9/24/2020

We love the GE water softener, not only does a shower feel better but our dishes come out of the dish washer so clean now it's almost unbelievable. Cleared up hard water deposits on our faucets through out the house! We love this so much we recommend it to our son when he bought his first house.

OpaTheGrandpa 9/23/2020

I'm quite pleased with this softener. The local Home Depot had one in stock when the old Whirlpool quit working, and the best part is the two softeners were so similar that I didn't even need to shut the water off to hook the new one up, the old bypass valve plugged right into the back of the new softener. It's working well.

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.
