I've read all the information that came with by C-201 ("8 Gallon capacity") Liquidator, and come away confused.
First, it is advertised as having an 8 gallon chlorine capacity, and in Step 2 of the Start Up Procedure in the manual it states:
"Do not add more than four gallons of liquid pool chlorine to THE LIQUIDATOR® Model R-101 or eight gallons to the Model C-201 at one time."
However, the unit came with a laminated Operating Instructions card attached to it which states:
"Never add more than 4 gallons of Liquid Chlorine into the C-201" !
Furthermore, the both the laminated card states "The yellow chlorine bed should not exceed the top of the white tube extension on the lower portion of the black drop tube" and the manual more strongly states "When recharging the unit with new liquid pool chlorine, never add more than the recommended maximum (i.e., the yellow liquid chlorine bed not higher than the top of the white extension on the drop tube)"
However, before starting up the LQ I poured in water in 1 gallon increments to make markings on the LQ and found that at 7 gallons the water just reached the top of the white extension tube, not 8 gallons!
So, it it safe to add 8 gallons and exceed the top of the white tube, or should I limit it to 7 gallons?
Thanks! - Larry
