Thread: Liquidator ?

    Liquidator ?

    I have been reading about The Liquidator and was wondering, how do you know when to add more bleach? Do you have to drain some of the water/bleach mixture out each time you refill?

    I'm in my second season with the liquidator,works good. I dont have it in front of me but I think the manual says to add when one or two inches from the bottom. You can shut off pump and let the liquidator dran down for adding chlorine or hold float valve up so no water enters to add. Someone suggested adding a shut off valve to stop water flow, that's a good idea that I havent got around to doing yet,but it sounds like the best way. Either way it's no problem to add chlorine.

    There's a very distinct line between the water and the bleach. You won't have a problem telling the level of the bleach.

    You can add about one large jug to the LQ without getting to high. If you do that and let it run a few minutes then you can add another one. I have used a bungee to hold the inlet float valve closed so the level would go down some before starting to fill.

    Ok, got that, now how do you regulate how much bleach is put into the pool water if I'm using say 6%?

    With the flow valve. The flow indicator will show you how much it is flowing. Just test for a few days and adjust up and down until it's stabilized.
