    Liquidator OK to use with copper pipes?

    Hi everyone!
    Just curious if anyone knows if the Liquidator is safe to use in-line with [older] copper pipes? - Or is it not advised.
    I'm considering getting one (hope so), but don't want to harm the equipment. Currently, all of the equipment and pipes are in near-perfect and functioning condition surprisingly enough.
    Anyone have any ideas/comments?
    Thanks,
    Travis.

    Hey, Travis,

    I'm not sure of the extent of your copper piping but I'd say combining the LQ and copper is a big no-no.

    The chlorine comes out of the LQ and into your sytem at perhaps 100 times (or more) of it's pool concentration. If it goes directly into copper piping at that point, I believe it would erode the pipes very quickly.

    Thanks for the quick reply Dave !
    aaah ... bummer. I was hoping for the added convenience. Guess I'll have to stick with manually adding the bleach. : (
