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.

Hi, power was lost in the house about 4 weeks ago for 11 hours, the fleck 5600 has not done a regeneration cycle since. I check the power to it. Not using any salt. System is around 1 year old. Any...


On the Fleck 5600 the timer motor also serves as the drive motor. It is on the back side of the control in the upper left hand corner. Reset the time of day and see if it keeps proper time. If not the timer motor needs to be replaced. If the control is an sxt model the circuit board may be bad from a power surge.

I have a fleck 5600 and my plumber had to unplug everything do do some plumbing work. I know have to automatically put it on generate for it to run. What do I need to do to have it go on automatice it...


If it is a time clock or mechanical meter you just need to reset to the correct time of day. If it is a digital control you may have to reset the program mode settings (time of day, hardness).

Add a comment if you have different timer

At fixya, we're not supposed to copy-paste from manual, but manual says information clearly.
If timer has the day-skipper wheel located lower left of large yellow dial:
Not every timer has day-skipper wheel, in which case timer works same for each day.
TO SKIP DAYS: Turn black skipper wheel COUNTER-CLOCKWISE
until today's day is in front of "14" arrow. Press pins DOWN on days
of NO watering. The skipper wheel must have all pins UP for daily
watering.

Additional instructions:
1. TO SET FIRST ZONE: For watering, push gold pin into slot on yellow
dial at desired ON time. For each 12 minutes of additional watering
add one pin WITHOUT skipping a slot.
2. TO CHANGE ZONES: Leave one blank slot on yellow dial after ON
line (gold pin), and valve will automatically advance to next zone.
3. TO SET ADDITIONAL ZONES: Repeat steps 1 and 2. REMEMBER
to leave blank space between zones
4. TO SET TIME OF DAY: Turn yellow dial CLOCKWISE, until correct
line is at end of silver time pointer. Do NOT turn silver pointer.
5. TO SKIP DAYS: Turn black skipper wheel COUNTER-CLOCKWISE
until today's day is in front of "14" arrow. Press pins DOWN on days
of NO watering. The skipper wheel must have all pins UP for daily
watering.
6. PUT SELECTOR SWITCH IN AUTO: This switch can be used to turn
the system ON or OFF for manual operation without affecting the set
program.

When should i manually regenerate the fleck 5600 system?


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.

Fleck 5600 won't begin regeneration cycle. What's wrong?


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.

HOW DO I SET TODAY MONDAY, SO THE PUMP WILL START ON WEDNESDAY? I PUT MONDAY IN FRONT OF 14 ARROW AND PULL THE PIN OUT FOR WEDNESDAY BUT AS ALL PINS PASS ON YELLOW DIAL TO GET TO WEDNESDAY AND THE 12 MIN....

http://waterheatertimer.org/images/R8806P101C-timer-778.jpg

1) The silver pin goes at 12 midnight on large yellow dial. This pin advances the skipper wheel each day.
2) Turn yellow dial clockwise until current time lines up with silver pointer.
3) Rotate skipper wheel counter-clockwise until today's day (Monday) is in front of 14 arrow.
4) To skip a day of watering, the skipper pin is pushed down for that day. So you want to push down Monday and Tuesday.
For watering, the skipper pins is up for that day. So you want The skipper pin up for Tuesday.
5) The brass trippers are inserted on yellow wheel. Each brass tripper represents 12 minutes of watering for example. So if you want to water for 1/2 hour, then put two consecutive pins on the yellow timer wheel. For 1 hour, put 4 consecutive pins.

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.
