I just went through a very frustrating experience getting my pool water balanced. I learned more about pool water chemistry than I ever thought I would want to know. The water is now balanced and I want to keep it that way so I'm looking at going to a liquid chlorine dispenser like The Liquidator. First some basic information:
16 x 32 IG vinyl liner
Ozone generating system
Oakville, ON (Near Toronto)
I have read the numerous posts on this site and the information from the company on the Hasa Liquidator. I also watch a Youtube video that a guy from PA posted on how to install The Liquidator.
The manual from Hasa says to connect the feeder line (in) just before the pump which basically uses the pump's suction to pull the CL out of the tank and into the pump and then to the pool.
The video connected the feeder line to his old chlorinator feeder line. He capped off the other end that fed water to his chlorinator. He then connected the fill line to The Liquidator to the drain plug on his pump. I am assuming that this would have the effect of the pump pushing the water into The Liquidator and then back into the return line.
I have a few more questions:
With the connections as recommended by the manufacturer the CL is being added before the pump and filter. I was always told that was bad, that you always want to add chemicals directly in the pool, or in the case of the Chlorinator, it gets added to the return line just before it leaves my shed. I read one post that suggested that because the CL being added by The Liquidator is diluted, that this is not a problem, but it was unclear as to what concentration of bleach or liquid CL they were using. Does it matter?
To my last point, what concentration of bleach or CL is recommended.
I hope I have not posted questions that have been asked numerous times before. I did try to read as many as I could before posting.
