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: Have a fleck 5600 water

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.

SOURCE: fleck 5600 will not regenerate

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

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.

Have fleck 5600 economider valve and am getting resin in house been in house 5 years


Resin IN the house??? Yikes Scoob! this is a problem, and since the posting date is a year ago, hopefully you managed to get this fixed by now.
This problem is one of several possibilities, one, the main distributor tube is cracked or the lower basket is cracked or broken depending on how long, or I should say, how fast the resin shot through the pipes into the house fixtures. this type of repair should be left to the service folks like myself, this is not a "DIYer" repair.
