    Deciding on whether the liquidator would fit in my system

    Hello fellow TFPers ,

    I've been on the fence for some time now on whether or not I should get the liquidator. I don't mind adding chlorine everyday or two manually, but would like to not worry about the pool when gone for vacation. I'm also not sure if the liquidator is more trouble than it's worth reading about some member's experiences with it.

    My system's pretty dated and the set up is nothing fancy. I've posted pictures of the suction and return parts (tagged with red rectangle) where I think the liquidator tubes need to be placed. I'm worried that the blue/black glue(?) on the PVC would prevent a proper seal for the drilled hole. What do you guys think? Thanks!

    The LQ will work fine in those places. You can clean that glue up and make it seal. If there is an issue, you can order threaded fittings and thread the PVC to accept them.

    Thanks Bama!

    Do you know what I can use to clean the glue up prior to drilling? Can I use goo gone?

    Goo gone probably won't work but you can scrape it off as best you can then use fine sand paper to smooth it down. You only need one small spot smooth to get a seal.
