Anyone know who makes the GE smart water softeners, I can get at a good deal.  I know GE doesn't make, want to make sure unit is a decent one.  Otherwise, I'll get one with a Fleck valve.  Don't want another maintenance nightmare.  Thanks.

Mike

You can check the GE GXSH39E03 Parts List & Diagrams at SearsPartsDirect

some excerpts from:
Terry Love's Plumbing & Remodel DIY forum > Water Softener Forum, problems, installation and reviews

Gary Slusser:

Going back to electronics, humidity and salt air problems... mass marketed big box store brands like Kenmore, Whirlpool, North Star, mortonsalt.com and GE, all made by Ecowater, and their sister Ecowater dealer softeners, are not industry standard. IMO they are the cheapest and lowest quality equipment you can buy. I have replaced many of them and I sell to many people that have one of them that is not working, the failures are not caused by humidity or salty air. The whole control valve is made out of soft ABS plastic and the gear box is 'white metal'.

Industry leading Autotrol, Fleck and Clack make more electronic control valves than all others combined and they don't have problems caused by salty air or humidity because they are built with proper quality materials designed to not have those type problems. Also, all mechanical (nonelectronic) valves, other than the manual types and Kinetico (nonelectric) valves have electrical components like motors and contact switches and they don't have problems with salty water or humidity either.

Thanks for the input, I kind of suspected that with the GE and big store brands.  I'll do a bit more research.  Also forgot about Terry Love's plumbing site, great site.
