Long time lurker, first time poster
I've been using the BBB method this summer with great success. Today I installed the Liquidator, and I have a few questions:
1. With a CYA of 60, up until now I've been adding bleach to reach the 6.8 ppm target level as per the non-rounded chart. Now that I'm using the LQ with a more continuous flow of chlorine, what level should I be targeting? Can I get away with adjusting so I'm at the min level of 4.4?
2. I'm running my pump 9 hours a day. It's a two speed pump -- I'm running at high speed all 9 hours, then off for the remaining 15. The previous owner had it running at low speed for the other 15, but I've seen no difference with keeping it off. Should I go back to running it continuously now that I have the LQ? Assuming the answer is no, when is the best time to test? Right before the pump is scheduled to go back on?
3. Given the existing plumbing there wasn't enough room to install the LQ within my pool box, so it's not very well shaded. I'd like to do something to help shield it from the UV of direct sunlight. Is there a good weatherproof material I could cover it with to block the UV?
