Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to install and made a difference instantly I never replaced a water softner before. My old one was ancient. I did some upfront planning before I got the new. It was so easy to put together I thought I was doing it wrong. I re-read the instructions multiple times. I had one problem. After I put it into service I saw a small leak in the IN port. Someone (wonder who?) forgot to put the Teflon thread tape. The OUT was perfect, no leaks. The diss assembly was easy. Unfortunately putting it back together I cross thread the fitting, which is plastic. Luckily I caught it before it got bad. I put more tape on and its been fine ever since. When I made it recharge manually it was SO quiet. My old one made so much noise I could hear it upstairs. I saw an instant improvement in the water quality. The staining on the sink is gone and the water doesn't have that tin/metal taste. I can really feel the soft water in the shower. I am really happen with it so far. I just hope it lasts a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great softener This is as great a water softener as any available be it from a big box store or from a local distributor. GE sources from ecowater, which provides the same softeners for 2-3 times the cost of buying from home depot.
