First post on this site. I just installed a liquidator last week. I keep my Pentair intelliflow at 1500 RPMs and run it 24/7. This is enough pressure to keep my heater going and my UV lamp on. I do this to maintain a steady pool temperature of 90F on my indoor pool. Since I installed the liquidator, I have not been able to keep my pump filter basket full of water. It will stay about half full at 1500 RPM. Thus, I am pulling air through my system and it is noisy and I have air bubbles coming through my returns. I have inspected the inlet hole I made in front of the pump for the liquidator and it is not pulling air thorough this hole.
I have about 10 feet of hose going to and 10 feet of hose coming from the liquidator just to keep the hoses out of the way by running them below my heater and around some other plumbing. I could shorten this hose and go directly across the floor of my equipment room.
Will this help to get the suction back up? Or, are there other tricks to get the suction back up?
