    Liquidator question....

    I was wondering if there is a limit for the distance between liquidator and pump. Reason I ask is because I have a shed about 8' from my pool pump, which would be a perfect place to house the liquidator (out of sun, relatively cool, etc). I assume the included tubing isnt long enough to support that......is it possible to extend it? Or would it end up mucking with the functionality too much?

    Thanks.

    My guess is 8' would be just fine. The longer the run, the more resistance the system has to overcome to get flow thru the LQ but I wouldn't think 8' would be much of an issue. If it was, you could overcome it by removing check valves or possibly changing the adapters to use larger tubing.

    The LQ comes with 10' of hose standard so you'd need another 10' or so - very cheap.
