Fleck 3600 Parts Search Summary
Our best recommendation is to replace the complete valve with the Fleck 5600 ( 12 day timer or metered Econominder Timer versions ).
Fleck 5600 12 Day timer softener valve
Fleck 5600 Econominder, metered timer softener valve
And a new By Pass or Yoke would be required,
as the old one used on model 3600 valves would not work with any newer Fleck valves.
Replacing your old control valve head can add another 10 or 20 years to your current water softener. On the average well water system, the resins will last 30 - 40 years. The resin tank will last 100 years. On chlorinated "city" water resin replacement is recommended about every 10 years. The salt tank can also last many decades. Replacing the RESINS is simple if you need to ( or want to ) do this at the same time.

Question: New Valve Body has 1.05" distributor pipe opening, and my old center distributor pipe ( or "riser pipe" ) is only 13/16" O.D.. What do I do next? * 3 ways to "Adapt" valve body to 13/16" pipe ** There is a bushing you can purchase to adapt to your smaller O.D. pipe, SEE: TUBE BUSHING 13/16 x 1.05
** Or you can purchase the new Bottom Distributor and make a new center pipe, SEE: DISTRIBUTER -BOTTOM 1.05 O.D. PIPING ** Or for a quick adapter, you can use 2" length of 3/4" PVC pipe, which has an O.D. of 1.05" ( and you must use the common Schedule 40 to have the I.D. needed to fit tightly over your 13/16" O.D. pipe ) and glue ( PVC cement ) over the top your current 13/16" pipe, and this will become your "adapter". Remove a little water from the tank before attempting to use the PVC cement.
