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

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. 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.

Ease of installation

Tiger14 5/5/2020

I found this product came completely assembled, directions were clear to understand, and was fairly easy to install if you are at all a do it yourselfer or have any mechanical ability. The only odd thing is the 1" male pipe connections are not common to find going from 3/4" solder fitting to 1" female threaded.

I replaced a 20 year old unit with the GXSH40V. Installation was very simple. However, the installation adapters were not included in the box. I went back to Home Depot they were very helpful, They checked three other units on that were on the shelf and two of them were missing the adapters also.

Longarm177 4/19/2020

My wife and I had received several quotes from well known national water softener companies, they were in incessant of 2k, I purchased and installed the unit saving literally thousands of $$$. Furthermore living in Florida where water quality is a known issue, I can only say that this unit delivers what it promises my 15 gpg water is now testing as 0!

Easy install and looks great

immersivegamer 4/17/2020

Was pretty easy to install. I love the digital interface. The manual was fairly through, however some drawings could have been larger and when first unpacking I was afraid that two clips were missing and was about to stop until I found out that they were already attached to the device. Looks great next to my washer and dryer. While I don't know yet about long term use I am very happy with the price. Getting this, the tools I needed and installing myself was half the price of what I was quoted by some local people. I look forward to the low salt indicator and digital interface (I didn't know till I read the manual that there is a water usage feature with is cool). I am also looking forward to soft water again!

Changes our lives!

Hopelessnance 4/12/2020

I had no idea what hard water was until we moved. Dry, itchy, irritated skin, dry, brittle hair. It was terrible. Almost painful! Then we got this water softener unit. O M G what a difference. Silky smooth water, and all our itchy, dry issues gone in 48 hrs. Best purchase ever! It's a little cumbersome buying the 5 bags of salt pellets to put in it, but I tell you it is worth it!

WORKS AS ADVERTISED

Michael0320 4/11/2020

We have noticed that the water is softer for showers. Also, the corrosion we used to see at the sink and refrigerator water dispenser has disappeared. Dishes seem to come cleaner. Hopefully we will experience the other long term benefits of having a water softener for our home, such as less corrosion in pipes.

Small footprint

RV6Flyer 4/9/2020

I was shopping for a replacement of my XXXXXXX water softner that failed after 11 years and one of my requirements is that the replacement fit between and upright freezer and my hot water heater. As you can see from the picture it just makes it. A side bonus is that the connections to the water are in the exeact same place. Took about an hour to assemble the water manifold, slide it in and do a recharge. Couldn't have asked for a better fit.

Excellent softener so far

MikeB2020 4/6/2020

I've had the softener installed for roughly two weeks and can already tell a huge difference from my previous softener. So far I am happy with the water softener. I like the features that it has to show average daily gallons of water used with a few other items. I would recommend this water softener.

Down right excellent within first hour!

Doug_E_B 4/5/2020

From the beginning the experience was excellent. I was replacing an existing Sears\Kenmore appliance bought many years ago. The installation of the GE Softener was almost seamless with the exeption of the height connecting to the water supply and return. One quick trip to the store and quickly installed the softener. The quick setup guide let me add my salt tablets and program with ease. Let me say that this was a wonderful experience and I felt the difference in water quality within the first hour. Having to bypass the broken softener for over 2 years I'm really greatful to have it replaced with this GE - GXSH40V softener. I should have done this long ago.
