FLECK 5800 Series Valves


The key to the exceptional quality and performance of a water softener with the Fleck§ 5800 Series control valves is the proven piston-seal-spacer technology. This technology features a hydraulically balanced, PTFE coated piston on the 5800, and a composite piston on the 5810 and 5812, with a seal and spacer cartridge to effectively control service and regeneration flow. With only one moving part, the self-cleaning piston undergoes less wear and tear over time. The end result? A highly durable water treatment system with unsurpassed performance. Pentair Fleck valves are so reliable that a water softener was found in perfect working condition after nearly 40 years in service.




The 5800 Series control valves have been engineered and internally tested to exceed NSF/ANSI 44 standards. A water treatment system with Pentair technology can withstand nearly three decades of uninterrupted daily use.


You can choose a timer that initiates regeneration on a preset time basis, or a more efficient meter system that measures the water used. Because meter systems control regeneration based on water volume instead of time, you can save significant amounts of both water and electricity. Our electronic SXT control gives the benefits of accurate metered controls with the safety of a day override to ensure a clean, long-lasting system. Our user-friendly touch screen controller provides intuitive navigation and ease of programming. The XTR2 controller also allows you to place it on vacation mode to limit regeneration power while not in use.
