SOURCE: water softener seems to be draining all the time

http://www.puritecwatersofteners.com/documentation/Hydrotech_5600MI_manual.pdf

I'm pretty sure this is the manual for your unit. It might not be exactly like the one you have but at least could give you info for it. This is something you might have to contact the manufacture for. Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: Water Softener won't regenerate

mmmm.

I see they charge for a user manual!

I am not familiar with this controller. Is there a manual overide - a large screwdriver slot on the frint of the main shaft?

If so, you should try turning that (clockwise) to the next position and see if the moter will drive it from there. If not, then take it right through 360 degrees, one step at a time.

If it does not work on the next cycle then you may have to replace the controller.

SOURCE: when should i manually regenerate

If this unit does not cycle on it's own, you can cycle it manually anytime you won't be using water for about 2 hours, or if it's a time clock, one that has a fixed day schedule, and you have extra guests using water, you can perform a manual cycle to help regain capacity.

SOURCE: Fleck 5600 won't begin regeneration

Check to see if it is on proper time of day, if not the timer/drive motor may be bad. If it is a metered system make sure the meter cable is plugged in to meter and in back of timer assembly. Turn the large black knob in front (if mechanical valve) if it turns very hard or does not move the main piston is frozen up and should be replaced.

Just replaced old softner w/new whirlpool 40,000. Hooked up correctly, regenerated w/ 6 tblsp bleach before use, tested/set hardness, Water is not soft....why?


Is the "bypass valve" in the correct position. I would suggest flushing the water heater at the boiler drain, bottom of tank to assure soft water in WH. Make sure there is salt in brine tank and manually regenerate the softener 3 days in a row. Retest water.

Aquafine Sensimatic will generate manually but not automatically


I am not familiar with this brand. If it is not regenerating automatically that usually indicates it is not metering the gallons/usage (there should be flow indicator FLASHING on the control board) or the programming was reset to factory specs causing unit to not regenerate often enough and running out of capacity. If you can post a picture of the unit it will help.

Fleck 5600 will not regenerate automatically. It will regenerate if manually started


Need more info ! Is this a meter control, or day wheel ?
Does the clock keep accurate time?
If you reach around the back of the timer control box, on the left hand side, can you feel heat from the timer motor?..It should feel a bit warm

Have a fleck 5600 water softener timer (not economider) dont understand the setting of the days of week when there is 12 pointers on the skipper wheel?


The 12 day wheel is used primarily so that the unit does NOT regenerate on the same day of the week, every week.
There is a 7 day wheel available for this valve so if you irrigate on specific days, and you need it to cycle on specific days, you have the ability to do it without the softener cycling at the same time as watering schedule.

How do I increase or decrease regeneration frequency?


Water filters do not have a regeneration cycle, they filter the water as it passes through. You do have to replace the filter and the frequency of doing that depends on the sediment in your water. If you are talking about a water softner which does regenerate, all the new ones have sensors in them and they regenerate only when needed. This saves tons of salt over the old systems you would set to regenerate every two or three days whether they needed it or not.

How do i increase softness


A water softener ether softens or it doesn't. If you are getting hardness leak through continually check to make sure that the bypass valve is closed completely. ( the handle where the pipes go into and out of the softener, make sure the pointer is pointing to service). If you are getting soft water most of the time and it goes hard just before regeneration check the incoming water hardness, if it has gone up you will need to adjust the hardness setting on the unit or if it operates on time, set it to regenerate more often.
