    Replacement of a circa 2007 Clack

    My system has been in service about 16 years with resin replacement a couple times. I've lost the receipts & manuals so don't the model, but I think it's a WS1 or WS2. My records show that the outside water hardness is 26 and inside is 11, whereas back in 2015 the inside was around 1...

    How can I get a water softener system with Clack valve and Enpress Vortech tank when local companies sell under their own brand?

    Hi, I'm in the metro Detroit area and I've been researching water softener system. It seems like I'd want Clack valve and Enpress Vortech tank, but it looks like all the local water softener companies sell systems under their own brands and do not disclose the manufacturers of each component...

    Service Manuals for Nelson Valves?

    Not being registered at Nelson, where might I obtain a copy of the service manual for this Nelson, 5-button, Clack valve. NWTS-10CFM-AIO-0.0 The above, most of all, as it is most at variance from the generic Clack valve, which service manual I already have. But these two would also be good to...

    Did my first re-bed, two questions

    Did my first re-bed , 2 weeks ago, of a 1 cu. ft. system with Clack WS1 head in my rental property in Kitchener, ON - very hard water. This forum has been invaluable in getting me prepared! All went well, except for one rookie mistake I made, that I believe I have recovered from:) - see 2...

    Clack WS1 Diagnostic/Data Port?

    I have a Clack water softener and Ozone filter and would like to do some remote monitoring of these systems (remaining capacity, regen frequency etc.). They both have Clack WS1 variants so I am wondering if there's a standard way to retrieve data off these valves. I have tried sniffing the three...

    Who has experience of the Clack NWTS 5-button valve?

    One of the quotes I'm considering proposes a proprietary version of the Clack 5-button valve as offered only through Nelsen Water Treatment Systems. Referred to as the Clack NWTS 5-button valve, all I've been able to find on it is this PDF of their programming guide, and also this PDF of their...

    Clack Valves from Canadian Water Warehouse

    I found this vendor offering Clack valves: CWW Ltd. And I'm a just slightly put on guard by their listing of the model WS1EA (EE). Similarly, they list a model WS125EE (EA). When I queried the vendor via email, they replied that EE and EA were the same valve. Does this make sense to anyone...

    Clack Configurator Program?

    Something I stumbled across on-line yesterday at work during lunch was mention of a Clack configurator program. Am wondering it it is anything akin to the Watlow Configurator program for Watlow heater controllers. That is to say, a way of talking to the unit over RS-422 serial link via...

    On-Demand Twin-Tank Clack?

    I was informed by one vendor, thus... "The WS1 Twin can not be set up in a system 14 configuration utilizing both tanks at the same time for higher flow rates. This is only available on commercial softening equipment." Confusingly, there is an apparent contradiction in this brochure for the...

    Clack "5 button", EE, or EA for Katalox Lite with Ozone?

    Had discovered conflicting information on which Clack valve to use with Ozotech EOG for Katalox Lite. Sources differed in specifying either an EA, EE, or 5-button Clack valve. See final section at bottom. EE Argument: Ozotech's own website for the EOG specifically names the "EE board" as...

    I am looking to replace my gold series Culligan with something else. I am leaning towards Fleck but open to other options. Culligan came out and recommended to replace my current with an HE1 10". The pricing was just outrageous. I have been looking at the Fleck 5600SXT, 5810SXT and the 5810...

    Salt Level & Brine concentration / saturation

    I generally keep the salt level in my Clack WS1 unit above the water level which is recommended. However, every couple years, I like to run the salt down to near empty to make sure there is no bridging and also clean out any sediment from the brine tank. Currently the water level is probably...

    Marlo Clack valve filling brine tank on backwash

    I recently had my plumber (aug 2018) install a Marlo water softener Model MCV-30-K. I've had problems with this since day 1. The main issue has been that sometimes the brine tank is full. Happens probably every other regeneration. Originally I thought was debris in the injector assembly, so...

    I am not getting any brine draw from my brine tank. For troubleshooting, I eliminated the brine tank and its valves by putting the 2 ft brine line into a bucket of water. When I do a regeneration, there is no suction during any of the cycles and in fact there is water coming into the bucket...
