GXSH40V is rated 4.6585 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install and working Great I am a 49 year old female and was able to bring this item home and install it on my own. I removed the old one and installed the new one in about an hour. My first dishes out of the dishwasher were sparkling clean. My hair, skin, clothes, faucets all appreciate the new softner. The directions are easy to follow and it is simple to maintain. Throw the bag of salt in and set the guage so it knows how much salt is in it. When it gets low it starts beeping to tell you to feed it more. Glad I have my GE softener

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use controls, low salt warning indicator I upgraded to this single unit system from a Fleck dual unit system (salt unit separate from brine tank) and I've been pleased so far. I wasn't used to electronic controls before so having the capability to monitor water usage, set water hardness, and even select exact time to initiate the softner cycle, was new to me. The display even tells you how many days before you have to re-supply the tank with salt. The default water hardness number is 25. I thought that was too high for my water so I set it down to 7. After a couple of days, I noticed the water was beginning to lose its "softness" so I adjusted it to 9. I played with the electronic adjustment for a couple of days until I got the water just where I want and it is now set on 12. Perfect! Our soap lathers now, no stains in the bathtub, and our glass dishes are coming out of the dishwasher spotless!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just installed unit so far I am quite satisfied I really like all the features, the unit has quite a big foot print, at least bigger than my last unit. Still waiting to feel that silky smooth water because my hot water heater hasn't purged yet.
