Reasons you’ll want a GE water softener

Water Softener


Using soft water results in less scale buildup in water heaters over time, prolonging the life and maintaining the water heater’s efficiency.** It also helps protect your home’s plumbing with a built-in sediment filter.

The reduction in scale buildup also make tubs, showers and sinks easy to clean. Clothes will be softer, cleaner, and last longer and dishes will get cleaner with less spotting.

GE Water Softener Panel


The GE exclusive Custom Select™ blending value allows you to adjust the hardness of the water so you can have your water, your way.

GE softeners also include GE SmartSoft™ technology to “learn” your family’s water usage patterns so you’ll always have soft water when you need it. Plus an easy-to-use Days to Empty feature allows you to monitor when a salt refill is needed.
