    Replacement Part for Liquidator?

    Is there something different I can use instead of this part? Or I am stuck with this?

    I noticed on mine the water never goes up to 5? Is there something wrong? could something be leaking or something?

    It sounds like air is coming out on the right side of that part?

    Re: Replacement Part for Liquidator?

    Try throttling the suction valve before your strainer to get the flow up with the liquidator flow valve wide open. Use this method for a day or so. It seems that when everything is new the check valves were kind of restricting the flow on mine. Once I pulled some water through for about 16 hours or so it seems to be performing much better. You also might try removing the barbed fittings from the flow meter and re-tape them fairly heavily to help prevent air in leakage. Also you could order a 3/8 upgrade which should help your flow considerably.

    The 3/8 upgrade should have a coupe of 1/4 NPT to 3/8 quick connect fittings that replace the barbed fittings on your flow meter.

    If your setup doesn't look like this http://pstpoolsupplies.com/index.asp...x?productId=27 then you don't have the 3/8 upgrade.

    There a few different 3/8" upgrades to the LQ. If you look at Rabbit's topic on the upgrade you'll see he used different parts and subsequent posters have a few different ways of doing it. So yours may not look like the one in the link.

    To answer the OP's original question. I have looked many places and haven't found anything economically eoungh to use as a replacement for the flow meter or the float valves. The good news is that there was a lifetime warranty on the parts.

    Would anyone know why my water never fulls up all the way on the left side? Also, with the flow at 100 perfect, my level only goes up to 3 max like u see..
