I need to replace my cracked Hayward in-line chlorinator.
I've read recommendations in this forum and on PoolSolutions.com for the Pentair Rainbow (Ben Powell's favorite). However 100% of pool store people I've asked have recommend the Hayward.
Can anyone recommend one over the other and why?
Also, my chlorinator was installed higher than the multiport, so when the pool shuts off the highly acidic chlorinated water runs back into the multiport. I've had to replace the gasket several times already.
I could install a check-value.
I could install an out-line chlorinator instead of an in-line chlorinator.
I could replumb the area to lower the chlorinator below the multiport (difficult with the very tight space I have to work with...)
Any recommendations for in-line vs. out-line, and on using a check valve?
PS this forum is great! I've had a hassle-free pool since I started following the principles found here and on PoolSolutions, before anyone was calling it 'BBB'.
