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.

Scrimps on salt yet we don't lack for soft water.

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.

Best water softener for most households

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.

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

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.

imgnf 5/19/2020

It was just the perfect size for the limited space we had for one. It was easy (for a handyman) to install, and does the job. Already noticed the difference in the water quality, and the heads of the different faucets and shower (we have a multi jet tower shower) are staying much cleaner now. Quiet and efficient. I did install a water filter in front of it, which I hope helps the unit run cleaner.
