water softener recommendations

Hello all - I am in the market for a new water softener. What i do know is I want a metered one. I am looking into either a Fleck 5600 control valve system or an electronic Clack WS1 metered valve system. Aside from perhaps easier programming, is there an advantage to the electronic over the fleck unit (non electronic, gear driven model). Is there a difference in dependability, or lastability. I want something that will go the distance. I am not buying one of the big box store models for that reason.

Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Rob

I don't care for the electronic units. I've seen too many failures due to the electronics. I prefer the Fleck 5600.

Thanks - I too thought that could be an issue - it is nice to see I was thinking correctly.
