Greetings all,

Hope everyone is faring well. The bypass valve on my fleck 5600 has developed a leak. Not terrible but enough to take notice. Funny it only leaks in the "in service" position. Anyway, long story short. Does anyone know if this valve can be rebuilt or do I need to replace the entire valve? I searched but found nothing on the subject.

Thanks in advance for your replies,

Is it the stainless steel or plastic version? Where on the valve is the leak location? Include photos if possible.

Common item to leak. It should take you about 5 minutes to rebuild. When I worked the field I would replace a dozen of those a week. I also made commission on parts sales so that may have influenced how many I sold. :)
