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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

My wife has been asking for a water softening system for years. I finally gave in and am now regretting not getting it sooner. She was so excited after her first shower with the new system. She has sudsy shampoo, her skin felt softer and the water didn't have a faint odor.

Worth the price

Submitted by Suresh Murugesan - 6/21/2020

I did lot of research and ended up buying from GE. I feel like its worth the time I spent on researching for water softener products. The manual and customer service was helpful to clarify some of the questions. Thanks to another website aquatel.ca if I remember correctly which talked about what we need to consider in picking softener product. In this product, I like the following features. 1. Easy to Install 2. The display and the options 3. Combined Unit. This is BIG PLUS as there is no separate unit for Brine tank. its all in one - Integrated. 4. Cost Friendly. I strongly recommend this product. Hope its maintenance friendly as well. I will know in coming months. I bought it about 2 months ago (Apr 2020)

Submitted by Don43 - 6/19/2020

Thankful we bought this. It's compact and works well. We know when our water is hard because it won't make good ho tea. Since installing this we have not had bad tea, which we make at least twice a day.

Easy install and use

Submitted by Dan818 - 6/17/2020

Bought this GE water softener based on positive reviews. Not a plumber but it wasn't hard to install if you have any mechanical abilities. Once installed I followed the pre-use instructions and in about a week the house water is SOFT! It tells you in the owners guid that it takes about that long so don't expect to have soft water within an hour. One of the best things I have done to our new home.

Best water softener for most households

Submitted by ArbitraryNickname - 6/17/2020

I've bought two of these for different houses. My plumber bought the same for himself. These units appear to be made by the same factory that manufacturers the multi-thousand-dollar units, all of which have compatible fittings to the household plumbing. When I install these I place them on a stainless steel baking sheet so that if there is a minor salt leak, which I've experienced with household water softeners as they age, it won't corrode the underlying concrete.

Submitted by crmike - 6/14/2020

Nice water softener. Very easy to install. Easy to program. I had a previous GE, same size etc., that lasted 8-9 years with average use, and not bad local water. Control Part to repair myself was a Small circuit board, plug and go, that would have been half the cost of a new unit. Would be a 10 recommendation and 5 stars if lasted longer. Previous brand lasted 15 years.

Very Good Set of Features and Easy Installation

Submitted by gadgeteer - 5/26/2020

I purchased the GXSH40V water softener from a big box store. The installation instructions are very good, and installation went off without any problems. The configuration of the system controller is very easy and flexible. It took a couple of days to flush the hard water out of the system, but I did notice the beneficial effects of the soft water once the system was flushed out. The salt metering system should be very helpful in keeping track of the salt levels.
