    I have an EcoWater System ECR3000R30 and I'm trying to locate parts. I am looking for the inlet disc, outlet disc, and seals within the valve body. EcoWater's Part # for the Disc & Seal Kit is 7218688. I contacted local EcoWater dealers and they quoted me an outragous price for just two pieces of plastic and rubber seals. Where can I find a reasonable price for this disc & seal kit?

    Also, I have read in other posts that Kenmore and Northstar softener's have a similar design valve body with similar discs and seals. Can I purchase the discs and seals from Sears and will they work?Anyone's expertise would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply. I contacted them already and they said the parts are proprietary and they are only available from an authorized "Ecowater" Dealer.

    Yes you will have to go to an authorized dealer. Some dealer may mail them to you. Search for phone numbers of other dealers and call them.

    Any chance of a photo of the unit in question?
    might be able to figure out the parts with a photo.

    I'm trying to get in touch with an old friend who is an Eco dealer to see if he will sell parts. Give me a day or two.

    Thanks Water Dude and Akpsdvan for your responses. On page 30 of the manual, I need parts 38 and 10. It wouldn't hurt to get the spider washer and seals also (39, 9, 11, 12, 13, and 20).

    Maybe not all the seals and spider washer. Do you know if seal #'s 39 & 9 (page 30) comes with the discs (#'s 38 & 10)

    I spoke with my friend and he said he will sell me the parts. He talked about a kit so I will ask what comes in the kit. I will let you know once I find out the cost.

    I found out the kit comes with the rotors and seals and he said a few other o-rings. Each rotor has o-rings on the ends so I think that is what the few are. Post your e-mail and we can make arrangements to get them shipped to you.

    New or used?

    I would have to double check , but I do think that I still have most if not all of the valve body and its parts for a Eco system, it was the two tank, but the valve body most likely is the same.

    I can come up with some photos later today or tomorrow.

    The EcoWater 2 tank system uses the Sears style valve where as the Eco 3000 series uses a completely different valve that no other supplier would have unless you are an Eco dealer.

    ECO water system parts

    The cam/gear part I need is item #38 part #7124237 on page 30 in the ECO 3000 manual. It is mounted on the end of the valve assy. to the outer end cap. The motor drives this cam/gear for softener timing. my gear has two or three teeth stripped off. I could possibly use the whole valve assy. and also the motor because the motor gear teeth are slightly worn. I would rather replace the cam/gear part than buy a whole new softener at this time. My softener is a one tank system that has the resin tank inside it.

    It most likely is that part that you are talking about, the book talks about a Freestanding unit... that was the type of unit that the valve is from.
