    Another liquidator issue/question

    With 3/8" tube and fittings the flow from the liquidator tank to the pump would continue for maybe a minute or two after the pump shut off. Since going with all 1/2" tube and fittings the flow from the tank continues to the pump until the level in the tank drops enough to close the float valve. Will the high chlorine content water setting in the pump for about 16 hours cause a problem? The pump is all plastic (Sta-Rite brand) and obviously designed for swimming pool service, but I'm not sure it's designed to handle that high of a concentration for that period of time. I don't know what the concentration is but it must be fairly high.

    My thinking is since the pump is all plastic it shouldn't hurt anything much?
    Mine probably does the same thing and I have not noticed any issues. I have a Hayward pump.

    It's common for that to happen.
    It's only a couple of ppm so it won't hurt anything.
