Purchased the quick connect kit and the install went great. Set of the controller was easy with the video. The video had different components than the newest model but was good enough to get the job done. Note: the inner O ring mentioned in the video is already in the softner head. It does not ship loose. The only O ring that comes loose is the outer ring.
the unit came a few days after order was placed no more scale or iron the install was easy has been almost two weeks 421 gallons of water to go till regeneration not like my 38 year old culligan mark 59 that had to recharge every night and would use 240lbs of salt in two weeks and the price of the new softener was just right for me thank you
I purchased this water softener to replace a water softener struck by lightning. The pre-sale support by discountwatersofteners.com was fantastic, they answered my email, returned a phone call and sent a follow-up email to make sure that I had no further questions.. The water softener arrived exactly when stated. The install videos and documentation were spot-on, we did this as a DIY install and I am far from a plumber. We did have to reroute the pipes but we utilized the 3/4" upgrade. With the reroute it took about four hours, but if you were just working total install time should be around two hours. The system has performed flawless since installation. The water coming from my well is not super hard but it has a yellow color and iron odor to it when unfiltered. After installing this system we have the best water since I moved into the house. You will need at least two people to install this softener but my wife was able to help me out as neither component is extremely heavy, just a little awkward to manipulate.
Product arrived in 1 day which I was pleasantly surprised. Installation was very easy especially with the quick connect kit that I purchased. The only thing I had an issue with is the initial start up process. Instructions were not clear at all. I manually kicked off a regen and tested the water a day later and it was vastly improved.
I installed my Genesis High Efficiency Water Softener myself and I'm really pleased with the results. I called with a few questions and the support team was very helpful. I would highly recommend Discount Water Softeners and Genesis High Efficiency. Thank you DWS.
Glad I found discount water softener. I had limited space in the utility closet, about two 12 x 12 areas to install softener and brine tank. I was able to order 32k high efficiency with an 11 x 11 brine tank. Fits perfect. Couldn't be happier.
Unit arrived on day stated and in good shape, happy.
Just installed about a week ago, installation was easy, no problems.
All is well at this point, hope everything performs as stated in future.
We have a large family with really hard water and iron in our well water. For years I have dragged the green bags of salt home and down the stairs. Then I spent years begging my sons to do it. I ordered the Genesis water softener about a year ago. Now I only have to beg my sons to drag the salt down the stairs half as often!! I set the system for iron water and i don't need to pay extra for the green bag salt. Very satisfied after one year of performance. i had a little leak at install but customer support sent me a replacement oring and that corrected it. Great job.
As a DIY'er this was a really simple installation. Everything arrived pretty much ready to install. Really happy
