Please help with softener valve identification

Posted by ribs1 (My Page) on

Hello Fellow,
I still haven't bought a new softener yet because of too many other projects right now.
I would like to do some maintenance on my existing softener to try and get a few more months out of it.
I don't really know how to manually regenerate this softener as I can't find a manual for the valve or even figure out what kind of valve I have.
Here's a picture. I think it is at least 20 years old.

I got some super iron out. Planning to poor some in the brine tank and do a manual regeneration or 2.
Thanks

It appears to be an old Fleck 1500/2500 (30 years old?). The manual will be essentially the same either way.

Here is a link that might be useful: service manual
