My Pentair Water Fleck SXT timer is flashing a "1" error

Customer Question

My Pentair Water Fleck SXT timer is flashing a "1" error code. I ran a manual regeneration and it appeared to work. Then it started to flash a "3" error code. That must have resolved itself but it is now flashing the "1" again. How can I correct this error.

The number one code is a step error.
Unplug the ynit for 30 seconds abd plug back in.
Since You have done the manual step through and the problem reoccurred.
Go back to the master setting and verify that the system type and valve type are correctly entered
it could have been accidentally changed or when the fault in the system occured.
Once you have verified this is correct and it still goes back to error code the problem is most likely in your control board and you should probably wait for the repairman to come replace or fix it.
I'll be glad to answer any questions you might have
