I have a dilemma.
I bypassed my EMPTY chlorinator last week rather than letting the water flow thru it empty.
Then I noticed some air in the return jet.
Yesterday I turned the chlorinator back on (it's all cleaned out, empty), put the lid back on and air left the line.
However, now the lid to the chlorinator is leaking. Slowly, but like a drippy faucet. That thing is a pain in my .....
I plan to run the lid by the pool place and see if a new seal is available and if that solves the problem.
So, do I continue to bypass the chlorinator and deal with the aeration in the return line and the associated effects, or deal with the leak for now and have no air in line until I can have the blasted thing taken off completely. Which is better/worse in the short term of the summer.
Regardless of the opinion, the chlorinator is getting removed at the end of the season.
Could my plumbing guy who fixes all the other plumbing issues in the house handle the job rather than the pool company? Have to call him out to fix a couple other things so I usually wait until I have a list...
