My Culligan brine tank split, so I jumped online and bought a similar volume brine tank ( larger OD, shorter height ) which came with all the stuff; salt grid, brine fill/safety valve, and well. From what I have learned, the Culligan brine fill/safety valve was, specifically, .45GPM ( I'm assuming all of the automagical programming of the head results in fill times that expect that particular GPM ). This new tank has a FLECK 2310 fill valve ( and a larger diameter tube that runs over to my Culligan head.
Do I need to purchase a .45 GPM valve, or can someone help me and provide the GPM of the 2310 ? ( I can't seem to find it anywhere ).....The Culligan head an my brine tanks seem to work "in general" but I'd say the water is "high".......I've only been through 2 regens on the new tank.
Learned more. It appears as if putting the GPM valve in the top elbow of the brine fill/safety valve is unique to Culligan. Other brands have the GPM valve in the head itself.
I am going to try to "cut" my old brine fill valve/safety tower and splice it back together as a shorter tower so it fits in my new tank ( GPM valve is not a threaded connection.....horizontal and vertical tubes are all glued/sealed )
