We had a Hayward inline chlorinator that was causing our stabilizer to go through the roof all year long. The pool was cloudy and just an absolute algae fest all year. Could never get the FC to register and was constantly shocking it.
This year, after joining this site, I made the switch to a liquid stabilizer at the beginning of the season and the Liquidator. Within weeks of the installation, my wife was making comments that the pool was crystal clear and was always clean! I travel a ton with my job and the pool gets ignored chemistry wise when I am not around. The liquidator has really helped me to get it dialed in and almost "set it and forget it". I still check the chemicals, but 2x per week seems normal and usually, just require very minor tweaks (in July and August, usually our worst months, I made 2 minor adjustments).
What has amazed me is that I have shocked my pool only 2 times since I got the liquidator (one was after having 75+ people over for a family reunion) and the other was after having my sons Little League team over. Other than that, it have been trouble free.
Thanks for all of the recommendations!!!
