    Capacity of 8 gallon Liquidator

    What is the effective capacity of an 8 gallon Liquidator? Is it 8 gallons of bleach or is it a combination of bleach and pool water that equals 8 gallons?

    It's 8 gallons of bleach. The unit when full will hold about 15 gallons of bleach and water combination. I've actually got about 10 gallons of chlorine in it. There's a piece of pipe on the fill funnel and they recommend not filling the bleach above that.

    So are you still using the LQ?

    No, I'm using a peristaltic pump now. I gave the LQ to my sis and she's using it.

    There's a long thread about me and my peristaltic pump switch.
