    Frog Squirting water out of adjustment dial

    Anyone have any helpful hints I have a Frog chlorinator that is squirting water out of were the dial is.

    I only use this when I go on vacation for 2 weeks each summer so don't tell me to yank it out.

    Thanks

    If that is the pool frog system, it adds "minerals" so I would not use it. (sorry, I couldn't resist )

    I can not help you on the leak, but if you post a picture maybe I/we can. Others on here might know from direct experience?

    Yank it OUT!

    Seriously since you don't say which model you have (kinda important) I'm guessing that it's the 5400.

    If you look at the manual there's a snap ring on the dial inside the unit. Remove it and then you'll be able to slide the dial out and replace the o-rings.

    If it is the 5400 , I would...and I am serious. From what I can see, it does not use an oxidizer? That would not be good to rely on while away from the pool!

    Yeah I found that online about the snap ring going to look at it in the morning. It is the 5400 and it does us Triclor for chlorine.

    Boy you guys are quick!
