I have a 8 gallon liquidator. I used it all of last year with great success.
I used ultra bleach and it kept up pretty well.
Here is my dilemma......
I have had a greenish tint pool twice. I shocked according to here with good success. The last time my cya was low so I added some stabilizer and cya is at 40 now. I then put a solar cover on it and hoped it would decrease the FC usage. My Fc seem to be stable at 4-5. I took the cover off and had green algae on the liner in certain spots. I brushed and it cleared up in a day. I kept my FC 3-5. The pool now began to get cloudy and greenish.
I reshocked today and keeping the level above 15 for a few days. Fc was 15 last night and 18 this am with the liquidator at fill blast ~ 4.
My question is the LG doesn't seem to be keeping up. I bought the 12.5 percent liquid chlorine and added 4 gallons to the LQ. I have my valve wide open and the flow is on 4. It seems like the stronger bleach doesnt go in as fast if that makes sense.
I guess my question is do I have to run the LQ at a higher rate with the more concentrated chlorine ( 12.5%) ?
I thought the higher the concentration the lower I could run the LQ. The LQ is being finicky this year.
