Last Updated: 12/26/2017
The MacClean valves and tank are proprietary in design after 2001 ( bought out by CUNO, which in turn was bought out by 3M ).

Prior years used either Fleck 5600 ( RS, NS, NLS or NSM models ) or Fleck 2500 ( CSM models )type valves, and most parts under the Fleck repair parts category should match up.
Check part numbers, and email us with PHOTOS, if you are not SURE about your MacClean Valve and parts identification.

Here are photos of the newer Proprietary version MacClean that we can NOT provide any parts for....
Note the "collar" used to "clamp on" to proprietary Tank ( which we also can not provide ).

MacClean Uniflex Tank
Above is the newer Uniflex Tank ( no threads ) that is proprietary.

Below are old MacClean ( such as the CS1001 ) that uses the same Pistons and Seals as the Fleck 2500

The picture of the Seal Kit in the Fleck parts list shows a short spacer (part # 10757) as part of the Seals and Spacer Kit (part # 60121), however the Spacer in the MacClean Control valve is approx 1.5 long any comments?
** Correct.. You must "re-use" their larger spacer and not the small white end spacer that comes in the 60121 kit.
That is why they call their Kit 60121-C ( proprietary version with that special wider spacer made for MacClean valves ).
We can only provide 60121, but it will give you new seals and some new spacer to complete repair of your MacClean.

And this is a partial list of models that can use the 60090 piston and the 60121 Seal Kit we offer ( noting we don't have the large extra spacer in our kits ).
MacClean MCA Models

And this next photo shows an older electronic version that used standard threaded tanks.
So, in this case, the valve could easily be Replaced with Fleck 5600
