Question Fleck 2510 brine adjustment

I have two questions. Can someone explain to me, or post a video on how to adjust the salt usage on a fleck 2510 water softener. The manual I got with the unit is very vague and I can't figure out how to adjust it. Also, should my water softener be installed before or after my iron filter. Thanks in advance, Terry

Softener should be after the iron filter.

What color is the main cam? black , blue or White?

How the timer wheel with pins and spaces gets set up depends on the color of the cam that moves the piston in and out.

Wheel on the back side that has the pins and spaces is where the changes will be made.

First pins are for Backwash, then there are spaces for the brine draw/slow rinse. Next will be pins for rapid rinse then spaces for brine refill followed by 2 pins for the stop.

Depending on the flow control for the brine in that it is either .5gpm or .25gpm as to how long the brine fill should be.
Also how much salt is to be used per regen.

1 gallon per 3lbs of salt is the quick formula.

2 spaces is 4 minutes or 6lbs of salt.

High water in the salt tank may have nothing to do with the refill but rather a piston not closing or an injector not removing all of the water out of the salt tank.

High water in the salt tank may have nothing to do with the refill but rather a piston not closing or an injector not removing all of the water out of the salt tank.
This is often caused by air leaks in the connection to the brine tank. If the valve sucks air when trying to draw brine, no brine will be drawn from the tank. At the end of the regeneration cycle more water is added to the brine tank, increasing the water level. If undetected over time, the brine tank may overflow.

Ask me how I know this. ​​​​​​​
