    Thumbs down rented Rainsoft water softener

    Hi Terry and everyone, I'm really glad I found the forum because it's helped me several times in the past when I had to fix something by my little ole self, without ever having to post. Now, I'm stumped. I have a rented Rainsoft, which I'm sure I've paid for several times over the last three years. I need to find the model number of the unit so I can determine its age and value, then decide what to do about keeping the rental or not. They've never really given me any service, I buy my own salt, which is a major hassle when you weigh 110 pounds.

    Can anybody tell me where they hid the label?

    You should have a modified Fleck 5600 control valve.

    Normally Rainsoft softeners are undersized.

    You would do well by telling them to come get it and installing a new unit bought online.

    CAUTION, as of Nov 12 2013 all YouTube videos showing how to rebuild a Clack valve have an error in them that can cause damage.
