I could have only guessed there was a Forum for Water Softeners, How Cool
Anyway I have a Peerless Softener that is probably 20 years old and from researching I believe it is a Flec 5600. During the past few years I had to replace the Electric motor as it died and now about a year ago I had to replace one of the plastic gears as a tab broke off of it.
Over the last 6 months it has seemed like the water wasn't getting quite as soft but haven't checked its hardness and a month ago I had the screen on my washing machine plug up with very fine white beads, replaced the screen and again the water is coming in slow on the cold side. I have also cleaned these beads out of the airaters on the faucets.
I am guessing a screen or valve has failed but not sure also not sure where to get parts online. I would like to just rebuild the head completely if parts and instructions are available.
Any thought or advise would be appreciated
