    So that was the issue. Looking carefully at the parts diagram I now see that there is a double backwash version of the cam. I'm not sure I understand why that would be necessary with a digital...

    That is probably what is going on. I am not at the site at the moment, but will let you know. I didn't know that the valve is one or the other.

    Thanks,

    Fleck 6700XTR cycles seem incorrect

    My 6700 doesn't seem to be going through the cycles correctly. I just ran it through its cycles by manually starting a regeneration, the purpose being to measure the BLFC flow rate. I have it...

    Hi,

    Thanks, actually I miss-spoke and meant the DLFC, so Dittohead's response to miss-reading my message was just the ticket! Thank you both, as both pieces of info are useful.

  5. How do I remove BLFC from Fleck 6700XTR head?

    I am trying to find out what the actual size of the BLFC is. Do I need a special tool and if so, where do I get it?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    OK, I think I finally understand something that I had a complete misconception on. The Brine Fill cycle places a metered amount of water in the brine tank. The Brine/Slow Rinse cycle sucks all of...

    Oops. Only what is taken from the salt tank needs to be replaced.

    Now that is not my understanding at all. The Brine Fill cycle refills the brine tank. The Brine/Slow Rinse (I was a little sloppy with my terminology before) is where brine is being fed into the...

    Thanks, I did all that before hand. Now I'm just trying to get the system setup. In my case the SFR set the size of the system quite high compared to my average water use and hardness, which is...

    Thanks F6Hawk for checking my arithmetic! And for the reply. Maybe it is me, but it seems that I haven't been able to find that info in one clear place. Is there a sticky somewhere that explains...
  11. Salt Dosage and Fleck 6700XTR, or any head for that matter

    Hi,

    Trying to figure out the salt dosage settings on this Fleck head though I believe the following would apply to most electronic heads. It is a downflow brining head. Although it has a salt...

    Hi,

    Really? Just bigger wrenches? I have tried that but have already distorted two unions. I didn't use dope though. Has to be a torque spec/limit somewhere.

    I'm also having trouble getting...

    Got it. I knew that capacity is compensated for iron, so I was afraid that DH meant another filter, as pointed out by F6Hawk. The next question was to be the cost trade-off of more salt and IO vs...
  14. What do you mean by that? I thought iron would...

    What do you mean by that? I thought iron would be removed if it is there, up to a certain point. I don't understand manganese removal at all. The SST-60 literature implies that it will remove...
  15. Sorry, that claim was from one of the online...

    Sorry, that claim was from one of the online vendors for softening systems. I have since realized that they probably don't have a clue as they told me that only 15#/cuft is used for regeneration. ...
  16. SST-60 Resin, Reducing salt, removing manganese and iron

    Hi,

    SST-60 is touted as reducing salt usage by 40% and the ability to remove manganese. Is the 40% reduced salt usage still apply at low salt dosages (e.g. 6#/cuft)?

    My water recently tested...

    Well I guess I'll take that as a thumbs up on the 7000.

    I have to say that you two boys ought to have a time out. Neither are improving your images with those sorts of posts. That said, I do...

    Fleck 7000 questions

    Hi,

    Many folks here recommend the Fleck 7000, but one online seller advises against it in favor of the 5600. They claim the head leaks. I was all set to order the 7000SXT. Any comments?

    Well thank you all for so much input.

    I looked into salt dosage vs residual hardness leakage and found the link to the Purolite C100E resin. Looks like there is some leakage, but at least not...

    That is exactly what I am saying. And it's a stainless steel water heater as well. Here is a quote from the manual:

    "If the hardness of the water exceeds the maximum level of 7 grains per...
