Submitted by TGee - 8/29/2020

Gets the job done it seems can feel the difference in the water BUT the smart features are not worth the money. To be smart one should be able to adjust all the settings available directly on the unit on your phone as well then that would be worth the extra money.

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.

Does what it supposed to do but....

Submitted by catalover - 8/3/2020

I had to replace a 5 year old water softener due to the panel not working--couldn't change settings. Purchased the WiFi model after being told by multiple people, both sales person and installer, that ALL changes can be made via the app. They can't. I spent in excess of $200 for a feature that doesn't work as I was told. Save your money, buy the non-WiFi model. And it would have been helpful if the actual directions gave the correct APP to download. It's incorrect both online and in the book. Had to call customer service to get the correct app. Typical GE, can't get anything right.

Really like the WiFi Capability

Submitted by Dshaw1952 - 8/3/2020

Pretty straight forward installation. My only issues would be that I wasn't aware the brine tank overflow would need a really low point to drain to. I happened to have a small condensation pump so I used that to pump to a washing machine drain since I don't have a floor drain. One other issue was the automatic water shutoff had female threads not male threads on one end like The return/out flow of the softener so I had to buy a fitting so I could use the great shark bite flex hoses that Lowe's has stocked right next to the units on the floor. Other then those small issues, relatively easy to install.

Submitted by bschultz - 8/2/2020

My previous GE water softener finally went out and the new one easily went in its place. Simple instructions and only took a couple hours. Only thing keeping it from a 5 is the WiFi app was challenging to setup and doesn't seem to provide much value for the extra cost.

I had 14 years old GE water softener which had water leak issues and I replaced with this one. When I did shop around no other water softner's have Wifi feature like this one. It does deduct water leaks and notifies on your mobile phone. I recommend this product only installing Wifi app instructions not provided properly in manual need to call them and they did it within no time. Great Product!

Easy install. Have some DIY suggestions:

Submitted by OMajestic1 - 7/28/2020

Install is not hard. Did it by myself in 3 hours from unload to registration and app install / sync up. First: For all the non plumbers, I am not one but have diy experience from years of trying it myself. Make all of your plumbing connections you can not attached to the softener or existing plumbing. Takes some planning and patience but you will earn dividends in the end. Make the connections on the softener last. That way you are not bending or torquing the adapters or bypass. Shove the adapters in last! The sanitize step needs some editing. There's lots of white paper on the page for this. First you are referred to page 17 which is the page you are on, it's actually 20 You have to go thru all the programming steps first. Now for the app. The url is wrong on page 21. That takes you to a website which has you download the wrong app which does not have softeners. Get the Comfort GE app. Once you have downloaded give the app a little time when you are syncing up your smartphone, the softener and WiFi. And, for some unknown reason just like some of my other smart appliances at the last step the app gives you an error but when you close out the error message the app begins working properly. Registration is not hard but I never understand why the manufacturer can't do registration when you download the app, they ask you for all the same info and the appliance is giving its make and model already also.

Submitted by RAP18 - 7/26/2020

i was doing a remodel and decided to replace the water softener while we had a plumber working at the house. I decided on GE-GXSHC40N since it was IOT enabled and had a water cutoff feature. Years ago we had flood in the house. I need GE to support IFTTT or Smartthings to fully automate my solution.

Submitted by DalPal - 7/26/2020

This water softener works as advertised. What more can you want? The price was right and the install was a breeze... for my brother who had already installed his. It does take some plumbing know-how. He had it installed and ready to go in about an hour. This unit comes with a device that lets you shut off the water with your phone. You can also receive alerts to tell you if you have a leak. It also shows you about how many more days you have before running out of salt. Overall, it's a great unit and I would recommend it to anyone who needs softer water.

Submitted by ZKS7 - 7/15/2020

The water softener died. There were no replacement parts for the valve. The installation was very simple and straightforward. It was a plug and play. All of the connections were exact. Nothing physical was different. The prior water softener was from SEARS. Nothing was different except for the upgrade to wi-fi and the wifi shut off valve. The instructions for the Wi-Fi did not exist. The phone help (after hours) was terrific. Easy and correct the first time. The technician was very patient and exacting.
