    A meter timer assembly, meter assembly with the right angle and the cable......... no need for the full power head.

    And with only two 'mature' people in the house that probably have consistent daily water use patterns, your day timer if programmed for good salt efficiency will do the same job a metered unit would except for times of seriously increased water volume use that would use up all of the 24hr reserve.

    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.
