We're about 3-4 weeks from opening and we're finally prepping the Liquidator for installation. I know my pool size is right on the cusp of bigger pools for the Liquidator, but we've done the chlorine testing for the last 18 months (ish) and the numbers should work out. Push comes to shove - we install, we hate, we remove.
Here's my dilemma: The only spot to place the liquidator will get full sun from about 9a-3p. We all know what sun does to chlorine. And since we need every bit of that chlorine for the Liquidator to work properly... I'm wondering if I should somehow cover the darn thing.
I've seen people recommend painting them - which seems like a hassle. I was thinking of making it a little jacket out of the reflective insulation used in garage doors.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Lastly - we are running old school equipment - the pump isn't a VS (and is likely on it's last season - it sounds like a diesel truck running). We typically run it 24/7 but we're contemplating putting in a timer this year too. I'm assuming that if we keep up with the currently habit of running the pump 24/7 - we're going to CHEW thru chlorine - even with the Liquidator turned down low?
