GXSH40V is rated 4.7551 out of 5??by 49.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5??by from So far so good, a definate help to our water! The product was easy to install. The only issue I had was the inlet and outlet were backwards for my installation. Just would have wished the could have been switched on the unit!

Rated 5 out of 5??by from My second satisfied purchase of a GE water softener. It has been over 10 years since my first purchase of a GE water softener, when it finally gave up the ghost. I was totally satisfied with the first unit so purchasing again was a no-brainer. It's good to see that in the 10 years that have passed, GE has incorporated even more features while managing to hold the price close to what I spent 10 years ago. The install was simple, less than 2 hours. Well done GE!
