Thread: Liquidator Rate of feed

    Liquidator Rate of feed

    Question,
    Been a week know with the LQ installed and maxed out on the dial. My FC continues to be 4.5 PPM. Will it not increase my ppm over time. I have watched it and it looks like it is working properly. I thought I could raise the FC but maybe I'm wrong. Seems to be maintaining. Also looks like the bleach level has not changed.

    Also forgot to mention I have a variable speed pump and at low setting the flow meter us at 3 but when the pump sits at my higher RPM setting its above 5. It runs for 4 hrs on low the 3 hrs on high.

    At 7 hours a day at the rates you mentioned it doesn't surprise me that its just maintaining the FC in that size pool.

    10-4. I guess I'll give it a dose to bring it to the appropriate level and see what it does.

    What FC are you wanting to maintain? I keep mine between 3-4 PPM.

    Of course, you could be consuming excess FC by having algae in your pool. You don't say where you live (water temp) but that possibility exists.

    Repeating the above post, what FC are you trying to maintain and what is your current CYA?

    In Houston. CYA is 60 so trying to get my FC to 70 by using the liquidator. Pool is crystal clear. Never looked so good.

    That 70 was a typo right?

    Yes sorry. #7. Seven. 70 would be a bit tough and expensive.

    The liquidator should be easily able to over-chlorinate your pool.

    An OCLT probably will report an overnight loss of FC. If it doesn't, I don't think your liquidator is performing as it should.
