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.

Best water softener on the market

rrbisho24 7/30/2020

Love this water softener. Easy to install. Love how it's one unit and not two separate tanks----takes up way less space than my old one. Very easy to program and I like the easy to read display. Competitively priced as well. I love GE !!!

Jaylang 7/30/2020

Once installed we had soft water flowing within 30 minutes. Amazing how much softer our sheets, towels, and clothes feel. We finally got to say "goodbye" to hard water stains on our stainless appliances. Worth the investment.

Walter P 7/20/2020

My old water softener died after only 3 and 1/2 years of service. After looking around, I found the best price on a GE water softener at Homedepot for 1/3 price of my old and short life water softener. The installation was very easy and it works right out the box. This has performed perfectly since I installed it 1 month ago.

SanTanDude 7/12/2020

Installed myself since it looked pretty straight forward and already had a soft water loop. The next day already noticed a big difference on spots on dishes and spots on shower doors. Now hope and pray it will last since it looks like most things lately have a very short life span.

Love this Softener

matthedj 7/10/2020

We had to replace our older softener when the tank cracked. The only trouble we had was finding the hose connectors that matched our plumbing. Home Depot, where we bought the appliance, didn't have the right fittings. We had to order from Lowes. So far, Softener is working great. We used water hardness strips to compare outdoor faucet against indoor softened water and went from Very Hard to Soft.

Bypass valve leaks

Don is tired 7/8/2020

Bypass valve leaks at the outlet side of the valve. Seems to be a common problem. GE service is horrible. Wants me to call a plumber at my expense and is willing to pay if the plumber finds the part faulty. Removing the salt and returning.
