Today we have a unique product in-review, and it’s the ABCwaters Water Softener with the Fleck Digital Meter on it. That sounds confusing, right? Even I had a similar feeling when I first got to know about it!
But then I learned about the water softener, and that’s when I realized what I was missing out on! It’s a whole-house water softener, packed with quality features and on the top of it – you get the highly trusted digital meter valve.
The design of the water softener will point out how the water is important not only for the drinking aspects but also for the overall body hygiene.
ABCwaters Built Fleck 5600sxt 48,000 Grain Water Softener Review
Here the water softener setup comes with two tanks; one is the mineral tank and the other one is the brine tank. The mineral tank is 10 inches in diameter while the brine tank is 36 inches. One good thing about both the tanks is the 10 years warranty associated with them.
By installing a water softener, you could reduce the scale buildup, and also increase the lifespan of the water-dependent home appliances.
Resin, which is the main component used for the softening purpose is placed under the hood area.
Did you know this ABCwaters Water Softener has a 10% cross-link resin? This actually means that the resin-dependent softener will run for more 2 or 3 years than other water softeners!
Features in Focus!
This ABCwaters Built is mainly powered by the Fleck digital valve on the top. Fleck is currently the top, and the best digital meter on the date today. You are getting this along with the super cool ABCwaters softener! Now, how cool is that?
Also, this softener features 10% of the cross-linked resin compared to the standard 8% of the resin! More the resin, more the value of the softener. This ultimately increases the lifespan and overall run of the softener.
There’s a special installation kit that is delivered with the model, that includes all the necessary tools for the setup. Here, you will find silicon lube, sanitizer packet, drain line, brine line, hardness testing strip, and of course the instruction manual!
The construction has two tanks – one is the Mineral Tank and the Brine Tank.
With the help of the Fleck meter valve, you can keep a check on the remaining soft water. This way you don’t have to worry on the tank getting used up completely!

On the next we have the Pros and Cons – that will list all the good and the bad about this ABCwaters Water Softener! You can compare the points, and do a better judgment about the system.
- Durable Mineral Tank, with 10 years warranty
- Fleck Meter-Based Valve keeps a check on the softened water, and on the total water consumption
- 10% resin compared to the usual 8% resin
- 10 years warranty on Mineral and Brine Tank
- Installation Kit is the best part
- Great at softening the water, it does remove Calcium and Magnesium elements
- Good customer support!
- Missing drain line in the Kit
- Doesn’t remove Iron
Even though we have a lot of positives, still they have a few setbacks though.
The first point to note is that the model is expensive. If you want to use this product, you need to invest a lot in terms of finances. Those who are short on the budget won’t get to use it, due to this reason. One user mentioned about missing drain line, so make sure you check the whole package carefully.
Guys, this is not a Filter system. That’s why it won’t remove the Iron from the water. This way, the iron in water will be retained after the softening too. I didn’t find it as a drawback though. But if you want the softener to do this work, then this ABCwaters Built Water Softener won’t be the right choice for you.
