Hi, I have A set up that I installed my self about 6 years ago and I can use a hand. I purchased a system from this place in FLA and they have since gone under but the operations and website got purchased from another company that's honoring the original 10yr warranty (To a Point). My system operates just fine However, the seals around the piston are leaking during regen and it seems this is a common problem for fleck 2510 heads. Here is the system I purchased:
The above served as a pre-filter because aside from sediment in the water we had high Iron and tannins. Soo, then after the filter I installed this softener:
finished water is in pretty good shape but I notice my o rings are leaking on regen. (On Both heads)
They are not leaking alot but it seems it is pretty common and after doing some reading I will need to replace those O rings and spacers, possibly the pistons as well. The new owners agreed to send out a seal kit for each unit but HIGHLY suggest I remove each head and send them in for a complete rebuild (for 150.00 each + shipping).
So, my question is this....
If I just have them send out new seals I will need to order the tool to remove the seals right? Would it be best just to send them the heads as they suggest or would I be better off going with a newer head like the Clack WS-1 and gamble that I get another 10 years out of the resin bed and pre-filter?
I Could prolly manage the seal replacement if need be but I would hate to buy a tool I will need 1X for 70 bucks
