They receive endless positive reviews and have really been a top contender for people deciding on which water softener to purchase. Let’s take a look at some of the best Fleck systems out on the market today and then we’ll wrap it up by going over the benefits of Fleck systems in general and our recommendation.
Top Fleck Water Softeners
The Fleck 5600 is a large capacity 48,000 grain water softener that is digitally metered and is built to handle water with very high hardness levels. To read the full review of the Fleck 5600, head over to the review page!
Fleck 7000 sxt
The Fleck 7000 sxt is the same great digitally metered, 48,000 grain water softener as the Fleck 5600sxt with the exception of a higher flow rate for higher water usage. This is perfect for anyone looking for the Fleck 5600sxt model but would like higher water flow rate for a larger household with little to no cost difference.
Fleck 9100SXT Dual Tank Water Softener
The 9100SXT by Fleck Systems is a dual tank alternating water softener that is designed for those of you who need softened water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Single tank water softeners need to regenerate at some point, which is usually in the middle of the night when the water is not in use. The regeneration process can take a significant amount of time, especially if you have an older system. If you plan on using water during the regeneration process, out will come hard water. That’s why Fleck designed the 9100 SXT. The twin alternating tanks are designed to deliver softened water at all times. While one is regenerating the other is softening and keeps the cycle going. This is perfect for those of you with sporadic schedules that may leave you wanting to take a shower in the middle of the night.
The dual tank design may look intimidating, but don’t fear, the installation process is just as easy as any other water softening system only taking one or two hours at most when installed by a plumber. Make sure you have plenty of room set aside as the tanks are very large and will require a significant amount of space. The 9100SXT is perfect for a large home and will soften 48,000 grains of hardness while providing around 12 gallons of water per minute, which is around average for most households. Another great thing about the dual tank design is that it reduces the amount times needed to refill your tank with salt, which can be a hassle. I would recommend the Fleck 9100SXT for anyone that is looking for softening around the clock, less salt refills, and large grain capacity.
Benefits of Using a Fleck Water Softener
Fleck Systems have made significant improvements over your average water softeners and have designed system to be perfect for your specific application. One of the greatest benefits of choosing a Fleck softener is their digital meter valve that is designed to give you extreme reliability, easy to use interface, and provide you with cut salt and water use by nearly 40%. By designing the valves to use just one internal moving part and a solid-state computer they have dramatically lengthened the life and increased the reliability of their products. Don’t worry, this isn’t all talk, they back their products with a 5 year warranty on the valve and 10 year warranty on the tank.
Our Recommendation – Here’s What We Think
Fleck makes some amazing units and they come in all shapes and sizes. You will truly not be disappointed in whichever model you end up deciding on going with. But, for my particular application I would end up going with the Fleck 5600SXT as I don’t need the higher flow rate of the Fleck 7000SXT. But If you do in fact have a large household with several bathrooms, you should definitely utilizes the higher flow rate the Fleck 7000SXT.
