FLECK® 5600
Electromechanical Softener Time Clock

Fleck 5600 Control Valve

Features:

Our whole house, single tank softener is designed to be a highly efficient salt-based softening system capable of reducing scale buildup and light to medium iron staining on-demand through the process of ion exchange.

The automatic electromechanical meter is non-corrosive and UV-resistant designed for maximized service and efficient salt-use regeneration.

The salt tank and high quality salt included is designed to be bridging, channeling, and caking resistant while keeping the valve clean for long-term operation.

 

Treats and prevents the buildup of scale effectively increasing the lifespan of your fixtures and appliances.

Save costs on laundry detergent, dish soap, and other cleaning products.

Leave skin and hair feeling soft and shiny.

Maintains water pressure.

Reduce water heater energy usage by up to 30%.

FLECK® 9100
Control Twin Tank Valve

Fleck 9100 Valve on Twin Tank

Features:

Our twin tank softener can be used for whole house and commercial applications. It is designed to treat high hardness levels and medium to heavy iron staining.  The alternating twin tank functionality allows for continuous 24/7 operation and anytime, on-demand regeneration.

The automatic electromechanical meter is non-corrosive and UV-resistant designed for maximized service and continuous efficient salt-use regeneration.

The salt tank and high quality salt included is designed to be bridging, channeling, and caking resistant while keeping the valve clean for long-term operation.

Treats and prevents the buildup of scale effectively increasing the lifespan of your fixtures and appliances.

No reserve capacity is required. No delayed regeneration in the middle of the night. Maintains even, soft water under all circumstances. 

Save costs on laundry detergent, dish soap, and other cleaning products.

Leave skin and hair feeling soft and shiny.

Maintains water pressure.

Reduce water heater energy usage by up to 30%.

How it Works

Water Softener diagram

The main body of our water softeners is a mineral tank filled with resin beads. As hard water flows into the control valve’s inlet, it is then channeled down through the tank’s resin beads. These resin beads are saturated with positively charge sodium cations.

Due to ionic exchange, the resin beads act as a magnet attracting the calcium & magnesium out of the water exchanging them for the sodium ions, delivering clean, spot-free soft water through the control valve’s outlet.

Eventually the resin beads become saturated with accumulated minerals. That is when the control valve fills the tank with a strong brine solution, which is stored in a separate brine tank. The sodium from the brine thank flushes the saturated resin tank, cleaning it of calcium and magnesium ions and recharges the resin with sodium ions.

The control valve lets fresh water into the mineral tank to flush the brine carrying the magnesium and calcium minerals out the drain. The resin beads are regenerated and ready to be used again.

The electronic control valve at the top of the tank(s) “keeps track” of the gallons that it treats and uses. When it reaches a programmed number, it will automatically put itself through a 1½ hour regeneration process.

This process happens between 12-2 am on a single-tank control valve or at any time during the day on a twin-tank control valve.

What about salt-free conditioners?

Traditional no-salt conditioners may get rid of existing scale but will not actually reduce the mineral content in the water since they lack drain expulsion.  These units are merely scale inhibitors. The water will feel hard because it still is hard. It might not build up in the pipes but hardness in the water will still be seen when water evaporates.
