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.

Our water hasn't tasted this good, skin hasn't looked/felt this good and we haven't had lather like this since we moved into this house. Our water pressure's better, too.

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.

After not having a water softener for months, it was a delight to see how fast the new one started to work. After an hour I could see and taste that it was working. It is definitly better than the old one we had, before it stopped working.

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.

Does not seem to be working

George888999 5/19/2020

Installation was relatively easy. I was replacing the larger version of this unit, the 45V due to that one failing after 5 years of service. I have had the water analyzed and set the hardness number per the manual, but the water still seems hard. I have been increasing the number a little over the past month to see if there is any change.

Neat Compact unit, big improvement

Gegtexas 5/15/2020

This is a great value. After having a competive unit that was much more expensive, and then having to pay a lot of money for "re-bed after" 7 years, I could have purchased three of the GE water softners. Since this was just installed I have no opinion of the softness compared to my pther unit, but I see no reason this unit will not measure up. Somple install, only took about an hour.

Dave49777 5/12/2020

This is the second, identical GXSH40V that I have purchased. I installed one unit in my home several years ago and have been very happy with its performance. We built a new home last year and, based upon my prior experience, I purchased the same unit for the new place. The install and operation are simple and it does a great job with the (community) well water that we have. Iron is NOT a consideration where we are, but calcium is, and this unit handled it with ease.

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.
