Thinking about adding a Liquidator. I have a 27,000 gal. pool that is in total direct sunlight maybe 8-9 hours a day, in the summer. I run the pump 8 hours a day minimum. Do I need the 4 or 8 gallon version? Also, how much liquid chlorine does each hold, per fill? Any idea how often it will have to be refilled?
Right now I'm buying the 3 (1.4 gal) jug packs of bleach from Costco, but the pool store down the street sells 2-1/2 gal jugs of the "good stuff" , at a slightly lower cost, with the added advantage of reusable/returnable containers. We're talking maybe a .20 cents difference per gallon cost, once the percentage of chlorine is factored in.
The big jugs would be a hassle to store and use on a daily basis, but they might be a better option with the Liquidator.
In regards to the pump running schedule, right now I have it setup where as an outside temperature control overrides the pump time clock if the ambient temps are above 80 degrees. I set this up to run the pump longer when we get one of those heat wave spells. Is this going to screw me up trying to maintain FC with the Liquidator ? I'm thinking so.
