    Fleck 5810 Part Numbers

    Thats good to know. I am new to this and bit afraid to open the valve components. One school of thoughts is why touch something that is working but then seems like this kind of maintenance and lubrication can extend life of this valve. What Lube did you use?

    Fleck 5810 Part Numbers

    Thanks for commenting Jason Did you took the valve completely off the softener or did this disassembly while valve was on? Which part did you change? the Piston spacer kit? Any comments on brine Valve?

    Is my Softener drawing Brine right?
