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.

LIFE SAVER

Daut E 4/24/2020

I have 1200 sq ft and the capacity of these filters are perfect! the initial investment of installing these filters in an older home with old pipes, will def pay off. No longer replacing shower heads, faucet heads, no smell or streaks in dishwasher, and better performance in my laundry washer.

GE Whole House Filter

Glorinspell 3/28/2020

I had the GE GXWH40L whole filter installed one six months ago am very satisfied. I am using 5 micron filters that I replace every 90 days. My Municipal water supply is very hard and includes iron and calcium. The water is treated and potable but I don't trust it. It requires softening and the iron content is high. The filter is installed before the softener. Since adding the whole house filter, iron and calcium buildup at faucets and toilets has been greatly reduced and iron ring build up in the toilets is minimal. I had the whole house filter installed after remodeling three bathrooms and pleased with the results. All bathroom fixtures are new and wearing well.

Easy to install

Len905 2/28/2020

Researched on-line found it to be exactly what I needed. It was easy to install (I had my plumber do it) with my new GE Water Softener. I'm glad I was able to find this filter and the water softener as GE Appliances.

filter - hard to change/ leaves carbon residue

BS47 12/19/2019

The carbon filter is difficult to change - the seal/ring doesn't sit well in the canister causing messy leaks when trying to install a new filter. Filter leaves carbon residue in toilets. I confirmed the source by wiping carbon particles out of the filter housing itself. Since I change the filters more frequently than recommended, I would have expected the filters to stay tight.

Good Filtration, but 0-ring stretches

Scotymac 9/17/2019

This is a good whole home water filter, we are seasonal and have changed the pleated filter 4 times. The o-ring has now stretched beyond it's ability to stay in the housing groove and am having issues locating a replacement locally. Suggest buying 2-3 o-rings to keep as replacements when buying this unit.

Heavy duty water filtration system GXWH40L

Weeha 4/10/2019

The o ring stretched after replacing filter twice and the store where I bought it does not carry replacement parts. What's the point of having a filtration system if it can't function because now it leaks

Housing is junk

Scort 9/10/2018

Had my set up for about 15 months. Upon changing the filter the plastic threads on the filter housing all cracked off. The Retail store where purchased will not except for return because item was used and over 1 year old. Having a lot of difficulty finding a replacement housing. Very disappoint in the quality. Would not recomend to anyone.

Crack in clear canister; home water damaged!

Mad Owner 9/8/2018

Same complaint as others. DON'T BUY THIS. After 1 year, the clear canister developed a crack. We didn't now it until my first floor bathroom had water pooling on the floor. We thought it was strange but cleaned it up. The third time it happened, I looked up at our ceiling and noticed the water dripping. The water had been leaking from the canister for at least two months to be able to make it from our attic, insulation, second floor, down onto our first floor. Everything is soaking wet.
