I just installed my 4 gal. Liquidator this morning. Everything went ok with install. When I turned the pump on and the water level got to the point of opening the output valve, nothing happened. The tubing to the pump basket side had no water in it and the flowmeter was bone dry. I had to close my skimmer valve a little bit and I then got some flow. I haven't done the mod yet ........ I was too anxious to get it set up and I figured if it worked, then I wouldn't have to do it.
My question is, do you think it will be ok to run my setup with the valve partially closed? The pump doesn't seem to be starving and my pressure is about the same as it always is. I'm thinking I will do the 3/8 mod, do you think that will eliminate the need to partially close my valve? I am afraid that during the hot summer, I will have to close the valve more to get more flow just to keep up with chloring demand.
Here are some pictures of my setup/install. Is there anything wrong here?[attachment=2:2iaoudxu]4.jpg[/attachment:2iaoudxu][attachment=1:2iaoudxu]3.jpg[/attachment:2iaoudxu]
