This product was easy to install after working out the plumbing to the appliance. Seems to be a much better quality with more options than other softeners. Works great so far! Free shipping, and quick/easy replacement of one part that was damaged in shipping. Overall very happy, and will recommend to others!
Thanks for offering this product
I was very satisfied with this product and this company during every step of the purchase. I did enquire with questions up front and received quick responses. After researching this and other water softeners I concluded this was the best product for the money. I purchased the item on a Monday and it was delivered that Wednesday, free shipping! The installation was easy since I had already removed an existing unit from my basement so the plumbing was already in place. The Quick Connect fittings made connecting the unit to my plumbing a breeze and they are very well made. Finally, the instructions and videos made setup and programming easy. I did get a water test prior to installation.
I installed this softener 1 month ago. The difference in the water is amazing. I also placed a sediment filter inline prior to the softener because I am on a community well utility. Sometimes when they switch wells, the water has a lot of sediment in it and I didn't want that going into my tank. I'm the only one in my household and the control head says I am still 700 gallons from regeneration. I'm happy with that. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the slowness for service staff to respond. 24-48 hours is pretty ridiculous especially if you are in the middle of a DIY install. Luckily I had nothing major and got through it. I understand the covid situation guys but I am self employed and answer every single email and phone call on a daily basis. If you can't go through them and prioritize, add an "installation in progress" button to your contact form. Overall it was a good experience. I would recommend.
Purchased Genesis 2 upflow and installed June of last year. Product performs as advertised... couldn't be more pleased. Would send a pic of install if could attach. Installation was straight forward and still is clean and trouble free. Thanks
This is a great water softener. We noticed the difference it makes right away. I didn't think we needed one but my wife has been showing me how well it's working and I have been surprised by the outcome. The items were packaged very well and arrived quickly as promised. The resin was already added to the tank and this is very helpful and cuts down on install time. I'm not a plumber but I was able to install this in a short time. I was so happy with the unit, I convinced my father in law the get the same system which I installed easily as well.
excellent product, very fast shipping, great support by phone
Having dealt with hard water for decades I finally decided to install a water softener but really knew little about them. A friend who had purchased theirs from your company suggested I look into the Discount Water Softeners website. I found plenty of info to get me up to speed on what size to buy, how to determine water hardness, and several other questions on your website and Youtube videos. The unit was delivered quickly and was not difficult to install. The biggest part of the installation was having to route separate water piping to my outside faucets as I did not want soft water going to my wife's gardens. I am very satisfied with my purchase however the instructions on the initial startup could be clearer. The soft water is already clearing away the mineral deposits from my indoor faucets just a couple days after installation.
I finally bought a Genesis softener. It replaced an old Softener in our home that had been inoperable for two years. It's nice to have soft water again. We decided to use the pottasium pellets although they're 6 times the cost of sodium. I am hoping that the small quantity of pottasium might be beneficial to our plants and at some point I'll figure out how to divert the regeneration waste water to some plants. The softener arrived intact, the boxes were well packed. The only difficulty I had was the water inlet and outlet were reversed from what is on the control head. I had purchased the quick connect kit along with the softener. They made it relatively easy but I had to bend the 180° in order to make the connection. It worked. I have only 4 stars because I didn't get some answers from customer service that I needed and I felt a little nervous about the hookup. Otherwise it's working great. Our water is 18 grains of hardness and the system seems to use rather more than the 6 pounds of salt to regenerate bit I'm not sure how to measure that. We get about 1300 gallons between regeneration. We are glad to have our soft water again!
