    Not impressed. Put in a new well water eradicator/softener today. The valve is an electronic fleck, my other carbon filter is a fleck mechanical, anyway I install everything and plug it in and nothing, no display absolutley nothing! Can I use the unit for a day or two or should I put it in bypass till I get a new board or head? I was not able to do any initial backwash or anything as the dam thing is dead. I pulled the panel and checked the voltage and it was getting 24ac at the board.

    I see Fleck is the same now as for years prior to when I left them for Clack in Jan 2004...

    Is this 5600SXT on your 2.0 cuft filter? If so, the 5600 spec sheets says not to use the Fleck 5600 on larger than a 10" tank for a filter. And not on a tank larger than 12" for a softener.

    it came on a 10" canister, It is supposed to be a "well water eradicator". I was looking for somthing to remove organics as I live near wetlands (read "swamp") and at certain times of the year I get stained water. They told me it is an anion resin gizmo and is supposed to remove tannins. Hope the dam thing works.

    Yeah I have sold Fleck for 22 years. They are nowhere near the quality of Clack. Out of 1200 Clack sales, I've had 22 problems. Had I sold that many Fleck valves I would have had many many more problems. I had so many problems with the 7000 I quit selling it.

    Yes three ex Fleck engineers with 28, 22 and 18 yrs at Fleck quit and invented the Clack line of valves and to my knowledge they are still employed by Clack. I know two are as of just the other day.

    You guys have never sold a Clack.

    I have sold Fleck since 1987. I just had two customers contact me in the last few days about problems with their Fleck 9100 and 5600 valves that are just under 5 years old.
