I was looking for a thread that specifically talked about how the liquidator works but I couldn't find one, if it exists.
I understand the concept of it. It just supplies a steady stream of chlorine to the water while the pump is running.
But could someone explain the technical side of it? How is the amount of chlorine going into the pool regulated? I know there is a flow valve but I just still don't get it. If pool water continuously flows in, then out of the unit, it seems that would constantly change the concentration of the chlorine and you would get varying results. OR whats to keep straight chlorine from going through the valve and skyrocketing the FC level?
I switched my parents over to the BBB method last summer, when you all helped me rescue their pool. But I plan to be moving out soon, so I wont be able to take care of the pool for them anymore. My mom would follow BBB but she travels for work the majority of the week and cant maintain it daily. And my dad is the most stubborn man on the planet, and will just revert to his old methods before he ever even considers learning the BBB way. I feel that the liquidator could be a good option for them, since they are skeptical of shelling out the upfront cost of an SWG at this point in time.
Thanks for the input everyone!
