Question about NRS Fleck 5600 - 64,000 Grain Timer Water Softener

2 Answers

I purchased a home with a water softener that has a mechanical timer. I can't figure it out to save my life, is there an available manual? It looks like a Fleck from what I could learn through several searches.

Can you set different programs for the heating and the hot water?


Yes, most heat-water heater timers can be set for different schedule.

Brine tank no water in


I would say that you should plan on either replacing the clock mechanism, or you may have a larger issue with the other internal gears (e.g., binding). Personally, I replaced the clock one year, then had to replace the entire unit the next. You didn't mention the model, but many use the same clock/timer/gear head, so check for the parts online using your make/model. You can easily save 50% over retail...

I'm using the woods 59200 mechanical timer to automatically open and close a chicken coop door. I can't for the life of me figure out how to set it. Help!


Woods 59202 is 7-day analog VACATION timer and cannot be set.
Vacation timers are preset to turn on-and-off at random times so it looks like somebody is home when you are away.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59202

You might want the 59201 analog timer which can be set for on-off times over 24-hour period. Minimum on-off is 15 minutes.
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59201-Appliance-Grounded-3-Prong/dp/B001Q9EFTQ

If you need a 7-day timer, buy a programmable instead of analog. Wooods 59377 or Intermatic DT630 heavy duty
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59377-Digital-Appliance-Settings/dp/B000IKQRTU

If you have analog plug-in timer, open following link to see how to set timers:

I need trippers for an older model Paragon water heater timer Model TC-2. Can you help?


I don't recognize Paragon TC-2.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html

Intermatic cross reference does not have that model number either.
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service/competitive%20cross%20reference.aspx

Paragon sent e-mail last month saying they were no longer making timers and parts, except for defrost timers. Your water heater timer is not defrost timer.

Here is a wide selection of water heater timers, electro-mechanical and digital:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Boxtype.html
Manuals and wiring diagrams are shown for most products on page.

I recommend simple 240Volt Intermatic WH-40 for price and reliability. Drawback is minimum 1 hour on-off.
Or Intermatic T-101 for 120Volt heater or T-104 for 240Volt heaters sold at Lowes.
Intermatic trippers and motors are available and interchangeable, and are made of steel.

Some new timers are made with plastic parts:
GE 15207 is universal 120V 240V and sold at Home Depot.
Tork has new universal electro-mechanical timer, TU-40 for 120 and 240 applications

I use GE 15070 in-wall timer from Home Depot for my water heater because I change times frequently and try to shave every dollar:

The hot water recirc pump in my new house was equippped w/ this timer. There was no user manual, but it was set by the installer to run the pump during awake hours and shut it off during sleep hours. ...


1) Open link below so we are talking about same type of household system
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

2) 15 minute interval is misleading.
Pins located on timer dial divide 24-hour day into 15 minute intervals.
You set timer pins and decide which 15 minute intervals you want ON-or-OFF. Do this by moving pins inward or outward with your thumb or ink pen. To check settings, manually rotate timer dial clockwise and listen for pump turning on-off..
Set timer pins for 4 consecutive 15 minute intervals, then timer runs for 1 hour.
After pins are set, then manually rotate dial to set current time.
Dial rotates as time passes, and pins click a lever that turns pump on-off.

3) 5-year Life span. Like all things plumbing, if you have hard water or sand-n-dirt in water lines, then pipes clog. And pumps clog.
Once motor begins to slow down, it overheats and burns out.
Water softener can keep sediment out of lines, but shortens life of water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html

4) Real question: do you need a circulation pump? Do you need hot water at your faucet? Can you schedule hot water use, or does recirculation pump have to run several hours per day?
Recirculation pumps causes water heater to run more, the pump consumes 25+ watts depending on pump, and water savings claims of 15,000 gallons per year are fabrication.
Realistic water savings is 700-2000 gallons per year, assuming several folks in the home use water sporadically across a full day, and each time water is used people are waiting for hot water. It also assumes that you never want cold water at the tap and that refrigeration ice maker line prefers hot water to cold.

5) Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, fixya expert speaks with you over phone while you work on pump/timer or any do-it-yourself project.
We are always less expensive than a service call.

I recently purchased a home and in the master bath there is a Swirlway Acrylic tub. For the life of me I cannot figure out how to turn on the jets. Where would I be able to obtain an owner's manual?


Well, look in places further away. Sometimes installing people use distance, rather than GFCI for safety.... It may be a switch in a strange place. It may be a timer.

We have a fairly new Kenmore Elite front loading washing machine. We also have rather hard water here in Indiana. Problem is, water softeners do not seem to work. The manual says that the liquid water...


Hello, I would like to help with your dilemma. First, adding a Liquid or Powder Softening agent to the Wash or Rinse Cycle of a Washing Machine when using extremely Hard Water as the source is trying to treat the symptom and not fix the cause. These pre-packaged Softening agents are filled with Salts that attempt to mix with the Hard Water Minerals and Neutralize them so the soaps can saturate the water and supposedly clean the clothes more effectively. However, the Hard Water Minerals are still trapped in the water supply with these Salts because they are not removed. And, the manufacturers of these Salt Based Softening Agents have no idea of what level of Hardness (Calcium and Magnesium Carbonates) exist from City to City, State to State, or in private Well water supplies. So, if they provide 200 parts per million of Salts in their package, but the Water Hardness is 600 parts per million of Calcium and Magnesium Carbonates, there is no way the Salts will be effective. With "Traditional" Whole House Water Softening, the Water Treatment Appliance actually removes the Hard Water Minerals before the water is distributed to the entire home or business, then allowing the Washing Machine, Dishwasher, Water Heater, Showers, Bathtubs, and other water bearing appliances to perform their tasks as specified by their manufacturer. These Water Softeners typically attach to the main water line of the entire home or business, and virtually exchange equal amounts of Salt for equal amounts of Hardness regardless of the incoming hardness rating. Then, as the total capacity of the Softener becomes exhausted for the batch of water it has treated, the Control Valve automatically Regenerates the system with a new batch of Salt-Softened Water to use in the home or business. And, when you treat the water for the entire home, you reap the benefits of Protecting ALL of the Plumbing, Fixtures, Faucets, Valves, Appliances, and other household items from Scale and Hard Water Destruction.
