Easy to install. Much more efficient than previous non GE unit This unit replaced an older unit (non GE) which was a clockwork mechanical unit. This unit uses much less salt and is much more consistent in terms of the softness of the warer. November 14, 2012
Very satisfied We compared higher priced water softners and found that this one had all the same features. It is highly effeciant, uses little salt, easy to maintain, and does a great job for very little money. WE highly recommend. October 18, 2012
Great unit It does what it is supposed to do well! When I first turned it on, I couldn't tell if it was doing anything. I had to wait to notice that my water was not hard anymore to be sure that it was doing anything. If it had an indicator when the next cycle was going to start that would be helpful. No other complaints. August 27, 2012
So far so good Had this installed by a contractor a couple of months ago. So far everything is working as promised. Now if they could figure a way for it to haul the salt bags down the basement steps. August 21, 2012
Easy install and performs well. This water softener was easy to install and get going. The programming was nice, simple and intuitive. I've had the softener for a few months now and it seems to be performing very well. Also the price was very reasonable compared to a lot of the other options out there. August 21, 2012
Simple install! Install, and most importantly the instructions, were super easy. Was able to do this myself in a short amount of time. Purchased due to online reviews suggesting this unit. June 12, 2012
