    Fleck 7000SXT Meter Water Softener - 40,000 Grain Capacity
    [Brine Tank Size:18x33 Round Brine Tank 10]
    [Res-Care Feeder:NO Res-Care Feeder]
    [Resin Media Option:Hi-Capacity Resin - 8% Crosslink]
    [Turbulator Option:NO Turbulator 10x44 Tank]
    [Plumbing Connection:BYPASS, Noryl 1-1/4" Male NPT]

    I purchased my Fleck in December and installed myself, no troubles and everything has been working great. Today I go to check the brine level and see lots of bits of black floating in the tank. From what I can tell they look like a soft rubber/plastic. Has anyone ever experienced this? My worst fear is that a gear or gasket has sheared and the remains are sitting in my brine tank. I don't want to go tearing into a brand new unit if I don't have to. So far I don't see any external signs of damage. Thanks for help in advance!

    Anyway to post a pic of the debris? No way of knowing what it is without seeing it.

    When you installed it yourself, did you use flex lines?
