I already tried this at home, now someone please tell me if it is too dangerous. I HATE pouring acid and liquid chlorine into the pool because of the heavy jugs, fumes, spills, splashes, etc. I have a liquidator, but still occasionally need to dump liquid shock or add acid.
I disconnected my Liquidator and experimented with the intake fitting. I stuck the tubing into a jug
of bleach and PRESTO, the jug emptied out at a controlled rate. I would like to I add another suction side fitting and valve just for this purpose and use this same method to introduce acid directly from the jug.
I would be watching the whole time, I am not trying to automate the process, I am just trying to avoid the walk around the pool tricking dumping and choking.
Too dangerous because of the possibility of backsiphoning water into the jug? (in which case I would predilute in a bucket).
Too much undiluted acid into the pump and filter? (use 1/4" tubing and lower flow rate...like 1 qt/5 min)
Acid not distributed around pool?
Will acid eat up valve, PVC, fittings?
