A few months ago I installed a Liquidator (8 gal model). It came with the 3/8" upgrade kit, but I thought I'd initially install the unit without the upgrade kit to see how things went. Even with the flow control valve wide open, I typically see chlorine readings in the 1-2 ppm range and the ball in the flow meter rarely gets above 2 or so, mainly because my pump normally operates at a fairly low rpm at steady state. When the pump first comes on at high rpm, I think I'm getting plenty of water flow as the ball in the flow meter is about at 4, but then the pump settles down to its steady state rpm and the flow rate decreases as well of course.
So, now I want to install the 3/8" upgrade kit to increase water flow, but my original installation instructions didn't include any mention of the upgrade kit at all. To be clear, my upgrade kit included a flow control valve, 2 parts that have a quick-insert connection on each side, along with 2 more parts that each have one quick-insert connector and 1 threaded side. I've installed the upgraded flow control valve, and I replaced the original suction side checkvalve with one of the double-sided quick-connect parts (didn't know if the direction mattered with that though). So, now I have one double-sided quick-connect part along with both of the parts that have a threaded side, not sure where those go. I thought the threaded parts were replacements for part of the inlet and outlet thingies, but couldn't figure out how that should work.
So, if any kind soul out there could please explain how the various parts of the upgrade kit are supposed to replace the original parts, it would be much appreciated. I'm looking forward to getting a higher chlorine dose from the Liquidator
Thanks in advance for any help
