Top distributor basket not fitting over inside tube...Fleck 7000sxt


This installation has been a freaking nightmare. I am attempting to install this softener and want to install the basket that fits on the bottom of the main valve and over the riser tube and it wont go over the riser tube. Like, it's not even close. What should I do?

btw. i have a 7000sxt, about 1 year now. it works very well. cept i have yet to figure out the programing = i have way too much on my plate to bother. i just push the button when it gets down to about 300gallons left.

I apparently was sent the wrong one. They sent me the 1.05" version not the 1.25" (for the fleck 7000sxt) model. F M L
