    The Liquidator - White Buildup in Tubes

    I installed the liquidator about 3 months ago. It has worked well so far. In such a short period, it appears that there is already a white buildup in the tubes. I anticipate that this will clog them eventually. What is going on here? Is there a way to clean them up?

    Take it apart and flush it with a little muriatic acid and that should clear it out.

    Dont know if it makes any difference but I've ran 12% or 10% chlorine only for 4 years including this season and had no white build-up. Used tygon black tubing but they look clear far as I can see. Put on a section of clear on this year to watch a pinch valve in case it clogged but so far nothing. Pinch valve working great and one less thing to leak..

    I had the same problem. Maybe even worse. I also had to disconnect my flow meter because it would scale up with white stuff almost immediatley. I added borates and the problem is gone. I would highly recommend it. Everything runs clear now.
