GE smart whole-house water filters cost $229 from the GE Appliances Parts & Accessories online store. However, this price doesn't include the removable filters, which you'll need to purchase separately.
Most people won't need to pay to have their GE smart water filter professionally installed. The fittings click into your existing pipework without any soldering or special tools — as long as you have 3/4-inch pipes — making it straightforward enough for DIYers. However, you may need to purchase extra fittings to install your system if your pipes have a 1-inch diameter.
What Features Do GE Smart Water Filters Include?
GE smart water filters have integrated internet connectivity, letting you link them to your smartphone via the SmartHQ app. Once your appliance is connected, you can monitor your household's water usage and receive warnings if the system detects a leak or a faucet left running. You can also shut your water off from your phone when you're away from home. Therefore, installing a GE smart water filter can help you reduce your water consumption and avoid floods and water damage.
GE smart water filters use replaceable cartridges that remove sediment and other contaminants from your water. Which contaminants your system removes depends on which cartridge model you choose. The system filters the water to your whole house, letting you access filtered water from any faucet and supply it to your plumbed appliances.
You can turn certain regular GE whole-house water filtration systems into smart water filters by adding a Wi-Fi ConnectPlus module, which is sold separately. ConnectPlus modules cost $50.
