    Fleck 5810 - bad product?

    Called Pentair and they verified that Mid America Water Treatment is one of their OEM distribution center where they would send repairs to. All I can say so far that Aplus customer service is top notch!

    Fleck 5810 - bad product?

    I am going to call Fleck tomorrow and ask them about sending the 5810 back to them for warranty.

    Fleck 5810 - bad product?

    At first they said nothing. Basically told me to buy the 5600SXT and new riser tube for $440 delivered. When I asked them about the warranty, they said they can help me return it to Fleck and most probably I would receive a credit, because they cannot replace the 5810. They sent me an invoice...

    Fleck 5810 Discontinued? Next Best Alternative Valve? Clack WS1?

    I was literally writing another post of my super bad experience with Fleck 5810 XTR2. I am going back to 5600SXT. The touch screen panel of the 5810 was so hard to press, I tapped light, tapped medium, hard, it was frustrating to use. Stay away from 5810, good to know that it has been...

    Fleck 5810 - bad product?

    We purchased the Fleck 5810 XTR2 in 2020, after receiving recommendations from this page. Due to Covid, we did not actually hook it up until last month. Upon hooking it up, setting the programming, filling up 3 bags of salt, the regen cycle would continue to get stuck in either backwash and...

    Pentair 5810 XTR2 repeating cycle

    I have a Pentair 5810 XTR2 water softener, and it keeps on repeating backwash 2 times at 10 minutes each, and then moved to draw 3 times at 50 minutes each time. I just checked and it just resets the timer to do another 50 minutes of draw. Any idea why it keeps on doing this? We checked all the...

    Hi, I want to buy the Fleck 5810 xtr2 too. Do you mind what size tank and salt brine does yours have? I am confused whether to get the 1.5 cu ft tank or larger. We have 4 people in the house, 4.5 bathroom. City water, 4.4 GPG. Any input would be recommended :)

    Water Softener Tank Size

    Hi, we are wanting to have water softener installed in our house. I have city water, 4.4 GPG hardness, 4 people in the house, 4.5 bathroom. We like Fleck valve, so we are choosing either the 5600sxt, 7000sxt, 5810sxt. Can anyone tell me if it's worth it to choose the new 5800 series over...

    Pre Plumb through builder

    Hi: We are building a house and the laundry room is located on the first floor. Builder has an option to Pre-plumb for Utility sink for $960. Another option is to add Fiberglass Mop Sink with Legs (25 x 22 x 11) for $1,250. My question is, is that $960 for pre-plumbing a rip off, or not. I...
