    First you two, most filters do not have meters.

    Secondly if a meter ticks, it will only do that when water is running through it. The OP said it had been doing it 3 weeks and that it was in the basement so... I would seriously doubt water was being used every time he went down there. But not our Tommie or dittodude, either one screws up and the other defends him. And as the OP realized, his water would have to be running 24/7.

    Here the original post

    Culligan Super S is "ticking"
    My Culligan Super S iron filter has started ticking like a clock, only a little bit faster. It's fairly load as you can hear it when your in the basement within 5 yards of it. Other than that is seems ok since it started about 3 weeks ago. Any ideas
    Do ya read anything there about the water flow either way? Hmmmmmm nope,

    Here's the details

    Ticking like a clock
    a bit faster
    Can hear it within 5 yards
    Seems ok
    Started about 3 weeks ago


    Nice try....FAIL. LOL. Now see if you can post something helpful for a change LOL

    Gotta give you props for trying though. Have you read the definition of insanity? LOL

    There is no meter on most filters. AK got it right, and we see now there is no meter and the noise is the motor ticking. You were wrong no matter how much you wish and whine.

    As earlier stated and as the 1st to reply, I had no further knowledge. Yes indeed Akspdvan got it right but he had more to
    go on. You might try reading and following the conversation for a change. It would make your comprehension a bit easier.
    Would it change anything or make you feel better if I go back and edit my 1st post? because I will just to ease your apparent angst. I'm pretty sure that it be you doing the whining here LOL

    This is from YOU BTW

    I guess you thought a Culligan meter is different somehow from any other meter used on other brands of control valves

    But, but, but, valves dont have meters? LOL LOL LOL

    You really gonna try to beat me up on semantics? especially when everyone I have ever talked to or that has talked to me, in the industry calls them Metered Demand Valves.....but you probably have a different term. Other than comic relief though, you still have brought nothing to the table.

    LOL, some people are just hungry for attention.

    I would suggest the OP fix it with Duct tape.
