    Water still not conditioned

    I put a new Fleck 5600 head on my tank, rebedded it with new resin, and added new salt in the brine tank. I ran through all the cycles to confirm water was flowing in and out of both tanks (even put a flashlight behind the resin tank to see the resin moving during backwash). Yet after a...

    Fleck 5600SXT Setting Help

    I purchased a house with a 5600SXT legacy system. I have never had a water softener before, and was not involved with the original programming.

    Looking for a Las Vegas plumber to install a water softener

    Our water softener, a Culligan Medalist from about 10 years ago, began leaking a little while back. I'll be purchasing a replacement unit, a Fleck 5600sxt, myself and would like someone to install it. Please message me if you do work around the Las Vegas area.

    I'm looking at getting the fleck 5600 32,ooo grain system or possibly the 5600sxt but my closet it is going in only has 54.5" of clearance. Several sites list different heights. Some say 54" others say 56". Does anyone have this unit that can give me the exact height?

    Help me verify the settings for a Fleck 5600sxt 48,000 grain in San Antonio

I was recently advised to regenerate 12-15 lbs of salt per cycle since my current settings currently leave hard water spots on my dishes, faucets, and showers. This number seems very high. I currently...
