    My old 3600 system is having a problem: it is constantly dribbling water into the brine tank, over-filling it, causing water to flow out of the overflow tube and, incidentally, dissolving all the salt and flushing it down the floor drain :-(.

    All the gears and such seem to be moving fine, but even though it is in "service" position the brine valve seems to be leaking. I disassembled the valve completely, cleaned, re-assembled, but when I re-apply water pressure by opening the bypass valve, the brine valve continues to let water leak into the brine tank. I also cleaned and examined the injector...no apparent problem.

    Anybody have any suggestions other than replacing the brine valve?

    And perhaps more to the point: anybody know where i can get a brine valve for a Fleck 3600?

    Thanks

    That valve has been discontinued and parts for it are rare to none but
    www.softenerparts.com says they have some.

    Then I suggest you get a correctly sized one with the Clack WS-1 valve. To learn all about softener sizing.
