Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

EPIC Protect Plans

We're here for you if something goes wrong.

Our service plans can eliminate unexpected, out of pocket expenses for repairs with affordable coverage you can trust beyond the original warranty. It's peace of mind protection you can count on!

The protection you expect, the service you deserve.

When a problem arises and service is required, you need it fixed as fast as possible. But then you're faced with a costly repair bill. Are you and your budget prepared? Especially when you have no way of knowing when or how often service may be needed.

Red Button disaster

Madplumber 6/21/2022

Had one for four years, but the red pressure relief button broke after changing the filter. Water was pouring out. Got a new one at Home Depot, but it comes with the red button unassembled - AND THERE IS NO INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO INSTALL THE RED BUTTON! Worthless. Went with another brand that uses the exact same filter and is easier to change.

Relief button leaking after 1st filter change

Brian_CT 6/19/2022

Poor quality and very disappointed. The red relief button used to relieve water pressure leaked the first time I pressed it. No matter what you do to attempt to stop the leak, it will constantly blow water out and around the button.

Bypass valve came out on 2nd cartridge change

BBinmanassas 1/23/2021

Bought the gxwh20s water filter from home depot. The 2nd time I replaced the cartridge the valve shot out the end. This is a horrible design. I could not see what was holding the valve in the head. I checked the reviews and this is common. I am on well water with on off set at 40 and 60 psi. T

Never had a problem

okedoak 12/2/2020

After a flooded basement due to a bad pressure tank bladder. It broke one of my old filters that were 30 years old. I had a plumber install 3 of these in line. The first is off of the well, a 5 micron filter. After the water softner there are 2 taste and oder filters. These were installed in 2007 and I only have a problem when I don't position the O ring correctly while changing the filters. I change all the filters every 2-3 months. I make sure I bleed off any air in the lines after installation at all the filters and at the faucet.

Pressure release leaks on first filter change.

disappointed GE fan 7/27/2020

And leaks worse with every subsequent filter change. Reading the reviews, I should have seen this coming. I have several GE appliances that are really good; this filter system is a big disappointment!
