Fleck 9100SXT Review
The 9100SXT boasts a number of features that make it one of the best whole house water softening systems offered by Fleck.
This Fleck system comes with two 10” x 54” resin tanks as well as two riser tubes. Each tank has a distributor basket with a 1.5 ft3 resin capacity for a total capacity of 3ft3. With a 48,000 grain capacity, the system can easily handle the water demands of a large household.
The 9100SXT features a control head that’s digitally metered and a valve body made of fiber reinforced polymer. It’s easy to set up, too, thanks to the LCD display and touchpad controls.
This system uses an on-demand flow meter, which regenerates based on your water usage and not time. This saves on salt and water, making this system highly efficient and saving you money.
A high flow system, the 9100SXT can treat water at a maximum flow rate of 12 gallons per minute.
The dual, high-capacity tanks can hold about 300 pounds of salt, which means you won’t be constantly refilling the tank. The 9100SXT also boasts a simple DIY installation, so you won’t have to hire a professional just to install this whole house system. Fleck includes detailed instructions that will allow most homeowners to install the system. If you prefer to call a professional, it will take them just 1 to 2 hours to install the 9100SXT.
One of the great things about the system is that you never have to worry about running out of soft water. With two tanks, you always have a fresh supply of soft water waiting for use because the second tank acts as a backup. While the first tank is being used, the second tank regenerates to prepare for the next alternation.
An onboard capacitor keeps track of the correct time when the power is out for up to 48 hours. If you prefer, you can program the system’s regeneration sequence to keep your water usage to a minimum and maximize the system’s efficiency.

Although we didn’t experience this, some users did note that their water was extra salty. Salt levels can easily be adjusted to prevent this from happening.
The dual tank design of the system is really what sets it apart from other whole house systems. With a backup in place, you’ll never have to worry about running out of soft water. When your water demands are high, you will always have a fresh supply of salt water on hand. The Fleck 9100 SXT is a system that we highly recommend to larger households or those with very hard water.
