    Default Flek 7000sxt constant drain

    just installed a new neutralizer tank with Fleck 7000sxt. As soon as I came out of bypass, the system started draining. Tried depowering but it goes to drain each time I come out of bypass.

    Disassembled verything and started from the beginning again. Did not see any foreign matter or anything that I missed. Forced a maual regen and everything seems to be working now. Just one of those queertrons I guess.

    I'll keep an eye on it over the next couple of days to make sure everything is working as advertised.

    Check out the video in my signature. It will show you the syncronizing of the valve. Be sure the "S" is lined up with the arrow.

    Hope this helps.

    FYI, the filter valve and softener valve syncronize in different positions, but the letter "s" is the service position.

    Question...what does the turbine do? There is not one in my unit (neutralizer, not a softener).

    The turbine is the meter. Filters typically backwash on a time basis, not a volume basis.
