Smart Water Softener

Submitted by Fuzzy Bear - 11/24/2020

The unit works great! We now have adjustable SOFT water. The smart controls which alert me when to add salt, etc. are very clever. The ability to turn off the water in my home is an added bonus. GE thought of everything!

The only thing to watch out for is that the manual says it is shipped with bypass mode off, mine was not. I had no water readings for days. I saw a video with the bypass disengaged and looked at mine. Mine was engaged. I turned the bypass off and now my water softener is working.

Great job to soften your water - at a great Price!

Submitted by Daveg225 - 11/15/2020

Coming from 20+years of using the "Hey C.....Man" units, I was left not wanting to spend so much money to get soft water back. I did a lot of research and was left with no real good reason not to try the less expensive GE unit. I am so glad I did ! The unit was a very simple installation that I was able to do myself. It has the latest features of a "Smart" unit so you can view status online from your Smart Phone. It will send alerts if it detects a leak by monitoring water flow. You can even turn off the water remote in the event of a leak and you cannot get home. It allows you to see exactly how much water you are using from any fixture in the house by viewing the app on your phone and seeing gallons used per minute.. Interesting to compare how much water is used when flushing a toilet or taking a shower. Very happy with the performance so far. I missed my soft water !

Decent Filter

Submitted by Paulywog0667 - 11/15/2020

Bought a house thats 2012 mechanical unit valve was sticking. You could only manually cycle. With the hundreds of varieties. Home Depot had one in stock. The alkalinity and general hardness is now at stable levels. I haven't retested things like arsenic. From using RODI for cooking/drinking anyways. The unit does filter though.

Purchased mine at Home Depot. Home Depot installed it. I was able to connect it to my home WIFI pretty easy. The mobile app is ok. It is for a variety of GE brands and appliances. They need to put more effort into the mobile app. All in all, awesome appliance. WIFI mobile app is ok.

No more spots!

Submitted by Jamoncon - 10/8/2020

Very happy with this unit. Most importantly, it works. My hard water is hard no more, and now I can drink my tap water and let my dishes dry. It's looking like I don't need to install the whole house filter I bought. I love the unified all-in-one design. It looks good in my garage. It was very easy to install - did it myself. I think the WIFI function is worth the extra money. I was sitting on my couch and got a moderate water flow warning. Seemed strange, but walked through the house and found a running toilet. Had I not been home, I could have remotely turned the water off. I also like that it will warn you when the salt is low. I did have a plastic taste and smell in my water at first, but that went away within a few weeks.

Easy to install, small foot space, easy maintenance, App to keep tabs on usage and very low salt use. Softener will alert you when time to add salt and has a leak flow detector that will turn off the water. I would definitely Recommend and would purchase it again.

Great appliance for affordable price

Submitted by NHathaf - 9/13/2020

I went through the market and service providers looking for a water softener that meets my need and was totally shocked with the prices. until I found this GE smart appliance at very affordable price compared to others in the market. I installed myself (very easy connections method) which has saved me hundreds of buck for installation. We are super happy with it and we can clearly feel the difference. The appliance is smart, and after installing the application on the smart phone, you receive notification of days remaining to add SALT, if there is any high abnormal flow, with the capability of shutting down the water remotely from your phone. long story short (It is highly recommended).

Great features - Wifi connection/ shut-off valve

Submitted by Harold01 - 8/29/2020

Overall the unit appears to be a great unit. It has wifi connectivity for remote monitoring and an inlet shut-off valve (if an excessive water flow is detected - the valve will close). Unfortunately, this is the second unit - the first unit failed on setup and required a factory service call. I elected to take the unit back and get a replacement. It is a good thing I did, it was about a week and a half before I was called by a GE certified repair tech to schedule an appointment. Apparently the certified repair tech was on vacation and GE did not reveal that to me when the first unit failed.

Does what it's supposed to do, but....

Submitted by catladylasvegas - 8/21/2020

Replaced a 5 year old model due to panel malfunction. Replaced with the exact same model except this one had WiFi. Asked, before I bought it, if I could change all settings on the App. Sales person said yes. Asked the installer the same thing, got the same answer. Not true. Can't change anything with the App. Don't waste your money on the WiFi version, buy the non-WiFi one. Does the exact same thing. And just an FYI, the App the directions tell you to download is incorrect. GE might want to get that right.

Soft water feels great

Submitted by Chef Gene - 8/20/2020

So glad I purchased this water softener. I had calcium build up on my faucets/shower that has increased over the years. Hooked up the softener to supply the whole house with soft water. Followed the directions after sanitizing to run 50 gallons of water to flush out the unit and then I realized when washing my hands that I had soft water throughout my house. It was as if the soap wasn't washing off but in fact I had soft water and clean hands. Worried I would experience an off flavor with the tap water but it was just the same. Installation was moderate, set up was straight forward-following the step by step directions. My recommendation to GE is to add a step by step video for specific model install/set-up so the DIY person can follow along to make the process more user friendly.

Silky water!

Submitted by GUMS - 8/20/2020

This is a great water softener. It not only creates silky smooth water, but it also monitors your water usage and gives you a remote way to turn off all the water in your house should a leak develop while you are away from home. What a great insurance policy! We love using less than half the amount of soap, shampoo, detergent, conditioner, Etc.
