Fleck 7000 SXT Review
We’re the first to admit that the Fleck 7000 SXT isn’t for everyone. But if you live in a big home or have high water usage demands, you’d be hard-pressed to find another system in this price range that can match the 7000 SXT’s performance.
When we reviewed this system, quite a few features stood out to us:
If you live in a larger home or have a big family, the 7000 SXT can meet your demands. Fleck recommends this system for homes with four or more bathrooms, or showers with multiple showerheads.
With an impressive 48,000 grain capacity, this system can also accommodate homes with up to 8 people.
Even for homes with just 5 or 6 people, this system is a smart choice if you have water hardness levels of 11-20 grains per gallon.
Whether you have high water usage demands, a big home or very hard water, the 7000 SXT will get the job done.
Large Internal Porting
The 7000 SXT was designed for large, modern-day homes. Large internal porting of 1 1/4” minimizes drops in water pressure and offers higher flow rates. This system can be used on plumbing up to 1 1/2”, which makes it ideal for all applications.
Set and Forget
With an advanced design and programming features, the 7000 SXT is a set and forget model. There’s no need to worry about resetting the time or reprogramming the system.
The internal capacitator offers power outage protection by ensuring that your time is set for 48 hours. The non-volatile memory standard will also ensure that your settings are never lost. If you do lose power, you can be sure that this system will still remember your settings when power is restored.
Saves You Money
With the 7000 SXT, you can create custom cycle settings to ensure that your system is as efficient as possible when it comes to salt usage. Its advanced and efficient design will help you save up to 40% on salt when compared to other programmable systems.
Some water softening systems can be a nightmare to install, but the 7000 SXT was surprisingly easy. The company includes helpful and detailed do-it-yourself instructions, so just about anyone can install this system themselves. Although it took us a little bit more time than we expected, we had no issues installing this system.
