    Preparing to move equipment

    Split from HERE. jblizzle

    Not to high jack this thread but still absorbing information about converting my system in Orlando Florida to liquid chlorine. There is nothing wrong with my system but it getting up in age and was considering salt until I started reading about just liquid. I will be replacing everything moving it to the side of the house so I have All option on the table. Sorry Op just reading.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Either are great, and liquid is widely available in FL. I wish it were more accepted in Texas.

    Re: Preparing to move equipment

    My main concern is 100+ and higher in the direct sun temperature during the summer and loss of strength of liquid chlorine in that type of heat.
    The equipment insulation is very straight forward and that doesn't play in my final decision since I'll replace everything including the DE filter.

    That is why you do not stock up on liquid chlorine as it will degrade if stored in the heat and sun. At least I think that is what you are sort of asking.

    Yes. That is my main concern. I have ionizer setup at the other place but not sure if I want to try it again.

    So buy a few days worth at a time (make sure it is fresh) and store it in your house.

    Re: Preparing to move equipment

    I was thinking about buring the15 gallon chlorine container in the ground. I am just not sure it that would be a viable option. Still not sure that is better than salt generator.
    My original plan was to do this last spring but it rain everyday and now it just too hot so I building an complete outdoor electric kitchen with microwave and build a separate area for Gas grilling. So I will do this project this autumn.
