Reserve Selection for Fleck 7000SXT
Although this is related to my other thread, it's a little more specific, and may be more helpful to all forum members as a new thread.
I'm in the process (with Gary's assistance) of tweaking the programming of my new Fleck 7000SXT 64K (2.0cuft) system.
When you get to Reserve Selection, there are 3 options:
Safety Factor - expressed as a percentage of the total capacity
Fixed Reserve Capacity - expressed as a gallon volume to be held as a reserve
Variable Reserve - from the Pentair manual: "Variable reserve refills the brine tank based on
gallon volume remaining when the unit starts regeneration."
From everything I've read, it seems Variable Reserve is the most "automatic" (i.e. goof-proof) method for establishing a reserve. However...
I've just begun to understand the concept of salt dose, and it's relationship to the Brine Fill cycle.
"...refills the brine tank..." Does this mean that Variable Reserve actually adjusts the salt dose?
