    Liquidator install

    I just ordered the Liquidator and have a question regarding the installation.
    I read somewhere that you can just connect to the drain plug on your pump for the injection side.
    Would it be possible to do the same thin at Nature 2 fusion system drain plug since i will no longer be using that system since coming overt to TFP.
    My thought was connect one line to the pump drain hole and the other to the drain hole on the nature 2 fusion vessel .... this will let me do the install with not drilling any holes in to my plumbing.

    That should work. You just need to find appropriate fittings that match those two spots.

    Re: Liquidator install

    I was also thinking of reversing the flow...
    From the pump drain hole to the liquidator and from the liquidator to the nature 2 vessel drain plug.

    That doesn't work. The pressure is higher on the nature 2 side, which will push water through from that side back toward the pump. The liquidator depends on that pressure difference to work correctly.

    Re: Liquidator install

    Thanks JasonLion... Figured I was missing something. I will give it a try in about a month or so when I open up the pool.

    I have had the Liquidator for about a month and I love it. It maintains my level much better than I ever did.

    Re: Liquidator install

    Am I mistaken, or does the tubing from the pump drain go to the "out" side of the liquidator? The set up seems counterintuitive. "Out" to suction side (before pump), "In" after filter, before return. Is that correct?

    You are not mistaken. The chlorinated solution needs to be sucked out of the Liquidator.
