  2. I.D. Your Valve Brand

What type of valve do I have? ( Don't let the "Name" fool you! )

There may be a thousand "brands" of water softeners, but there are only a few types of control valves being used to assemble the systems.
If there is NO NAME on the control Valve, it is most likely a Fleck or an Autotrol control valve.

We have parts and diagrams for these on the website. Also the less common Erie Control valve, and the increasing popular Sears ( Kenmore ), GE Smart Water,Whirlpool, North Star ( all made by Ecowater ).

A few types use proprietary valves and parts to force you to return to your original dealer. Examples of these proprietary systems are Culligan, Kinetico, Cuno, Water Boss, etc.

Not sure? Just e-mail us and send photos inserted or attached.
