Thread: Can you ID this softener?

  1. #1

    Default Can you ID this softener?

    Can anyone identify the made of this softener? I'd like to do some repairs and need to know the make/model of the machine. Any help with getting a user's guide would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    I don't see a picture, so I can't identify anything.

    I don't use electronic units, but since this one has the big red knob, I believe that is an Autotrol head. Not sure about the model number though.

    Talking Autotrol

    that is an autotrol, metered and on demand unit

    and it is an older one...
    probably about a 1993 or so.....

    they are notorious for the springs and cams inside the unit weaken under high water pressure and
    siphon all the resin into the plumbing system...

    on the back sid e of the unit their should be a white stamped date to how old it is....

    it might be better to consider a new unit....

    I answered this in the other post asking the same question. It is an Autotrol electronic metered timer from the mid 90s used on 155/255 valves.
