    Recommendations for a Liquidator flow indicator?

    Anyone have luck finding a quality flow indicator (tubing is 1/4 ID and 3/8 OD) for the Liquidator? The one included leaked air (and so did its replacement). I don't have one installed right now, but it would be nice to have one to fine tune the output from the Liquidator.

    Would you mind sharing how much they charged for their service? I'm assuming they charge by the linear foot. I have some scale/evaporite that refuses to go away despite trying many different methods and I'm considering MaxxStrip. Thanks!

    Tile Scale Removal Options

    I have some light scale that has been on my tile for years and isn't responding to acid or any other scale removal methods. I've read of some people having luck raising the pool water level and lowering the CSI to remove scale over the course of a few days. Would it be possible in my...
