Injector unlikely to be black.
I infer you have a 0.25 gpm DLFC

You could cut the backwash down to maybe 6 minutes.

With 19 minutes, you could increase C some. Round the C number down.

Revised based on number from https://terrylove.com/forums/index.php?threads/help-for-programming-fleck-5810.82673/#post-595983
BLFC = 0.25
cubic ft resin = 2

Alternative C and BF pairs:
lb/cuft ; C= ; BF=


5.625 ; 40.7 ; 15
6.000 ; 42.0 ; 16 #less salt use, OK for many
6.375 ; 43.3 ; 17
6.750 ; 44.5 ; 18
7.125 ; 45.6 ; 19 #where you are with 19 minutes.
7.500 ; 46.6 ; 20
7.875 ; 47.6 ; 21
8.250 ; 48.6 ; 22 #silkier water
8.625 ; 49.5 ; 23
9.000 ; 50.3 ; 24

Thank you so much for the # comments. I was having a hard time wrapping my head around the variables and the actual result of certain settings. That really helps.
