    Inline Rainbow Chlorinator check valve

    Hey everyone,

    I did a search trying to see if someone asked this question. Didn't, so here goes:

    I have a Rainbow inline chlorinator for my in ground pool.

    I am pretty sure the BB inside the valve is stuck closed. This will be the third time I have had to replace this part.

    I am thinking that due to my equipment being of a higher elevation than the pool, I may not need this valve to begin with.

    Am I wrong? What benefits does this check valve provide for my chlorinator?

    Thanks for reading.

    Dave

    Well, being in TX likely where your pool stays open year round, and where you may have water restrictions, I HIGHLY recommend you ditch the trichlor tablets and switch to bleach.

    As such, it is my opinion that you should not bother fixing it

    Sorry I do not know anything about them or how to fix them.

    I actually use both. I primarily use pucks in winter. Right now, water temps are still very cold.

    Also, FWIW, I tried the Liquidator, but gave up on it as clogged easily with the "white stuff".
