How to Rebuild Your Clack WS1 Water Softener or Iron & Sulphur Filter

If you’re a more visual learner, feel free to check out this video that shows you how every one of these steps should be done. That video is one of my Live Streams on YouTube, check it out.


You simply need to:


1. Start by putting the valve into bypass and then press the Regen button to release the pressure inside the valve.


2. Grab a small bucket, go to the left side of the unit and disconnect the drain line, then catch the excess water (if there is any) from the drain line in your bucket.


3. Remove the faceplate and unplug the circuit board, and then detach it at the top with the two clips. The meter and the power line come off the side.


4. Unscrew the drive-end cap assembly so you can pull out the pistons and the spacer stack. Keep your bucket handy to catch the water.


5. Now, you will want to push in the new spacer stack and clip on the new pistons. Next, insert the assembly and tighten up the drive cap, being careful not to overtighten it.


6. Put the mainframe back on, making sure the wires are routed the same way they were.


7. Next, your valve will synchronize and bring itself back into its home position.


8. Now, you can reattach the drain line and take the valve out of the bypass position.


9. Put the face plate back on and you should be good to go!
