    Ive had my Fleck 3600sxt for a month now and it hasn't regenerated yet. I have it set to regenerate every 14 days or earlier if needed. Can't figure it out?????

    Is it drawing brine ? Have you cycled the valve and checked that you have suction at the brine line?

    3600SXT? Well, I assume you mean the 5600SXT since the 3600 was never available in electronic form, and it was discontinued about a decade ago...

    A common problem with newly installed systems is the turbine in the meter can get a piece of teflon tape, debris, etc inside of it. Do you see the meter indicator flashing when water is flowing?

    On the SXT screen, right hand side, you should see a water drip (not the faucet) and it should blink when you turn on water inside the house. The system must be in service (not regeneration). I assume your system is a metered 5600SXT. Check that first and let us know what you find.

    Have to wait for initiated regeneration to stop. Want to see it go through stages. I'm pretty sure that water drip flashes.
