Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for GE 30,000 Grain Water Softener. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.50 stars, and the price range is $214.00-$758.00.

In general, the GE 30,000 Grain Water Softener performs up to everyone's expectations. The water softener is efficient, using less salt which customers appreciated fewer trips to the hardware store. Installation was simple and quick. Many reviewers installed the water softener themselvesIt was a matter of unplugging their old unit and plugging in the GE unit. Even for those who may not have been mechanical inclined, they were able to easily follow the instructions manual. Of course, there were also some customers who did not want to risk installing the GE water softener themselves, so they hired professional help. In this case, many reviewers highly recommended purchasing the unit through Home Depot. Everybody seemed very pleased with the installer's efficiency and customer service.

Customers experienced problems with installation only when they were replacing very old units or units using different sizes of plumbing fixtures. This led to extra purchases, troubleshooting, and multiple trips to the hardware store. Many reviewers also noted that the spectacular performance of the GE 30,000 Grain Water Softener was short lived. After a few months, the unit appeared to break down causing the need for repairs and frustrating calls to GE.

Some reviewers thought the GE 30,000 Grain Water Softener performed just as well as more expensive water softeners. This may be a great value for the unit. But to maintain satisfaction and to avoid frustration, customers may do well, in the long run, to hire a professional installer and look into all warranty options.

Went to Home Depot, the plumbing guys were extremely helpful in the Boardman, Ohio store, suggested new plumbing hookup flex pipes that just clamped on my existing 3/4" plumbing pipes and hooked right up to the new water softener.

Keeping the salt level high and checking for salt bridges every time you add salt is a good habit.

Installed personally. Prior to installing, I added a whole house water filter unit and then connected the soft water filter. Unit is working to expectations.
