Doesn't anyone else sell these online? It's weird that I can't find it anywhere. I went ahead and ordered one from the poolandwarehouse.com people. Can't wait to see it in action.heatmisr said:Here's the link. I bought mine from them also:

I don't know if I am the one who answered this but I probably have more insight now that I have had My Liquidator for over 3 months. I have a 2 sp pump 10hr run time on low. I have it dailed right on the 1. I think my pump pushes 48 gls a minute ( I may be wrong). I did have to remove the check valves because water would not flow at that low speed.kmb997 said:This was asked a few pages back, but only one responded. It may still be early in the season, but I was wondering what everyone has the flow rate set to and how long the pumps are running? I'm thinking of getting a 2 speed pump. How would running the pump, on low, 24/7 affect chlorine distribution? I guess I would have to dial it down to it's lowest setting, depending on pool usage? Most people at TFP say to leave the pumps running for about an hour after adding chemicals. I guess it's okay to turn the pump off with the Liquidator?
It's quite easy to install. You're going to drill a hole in the PVC just before your pump and another hole in the return after your filter. For both of these holes I looked for an area of pipe that would be easy to replace if for some reason I decided to uninstall later. Then you install a fitting into each hole that is held in place with a metal band and tightened with a screwdriver. Then you cut a few pieces of plastic tubing (supplied with the liquidator) to connect it to the two fitting you installed. In-line with the tubing are a flow meter, a cutoff valve and a backflow preventer (all supplied with the Liquidator). There are also a couple of float valves that are screwed into the side of the liquidator.algaeh8er said:I'm seriously considering purchasing a Liquidator. It seems like a more hassle-free way to keep the pool sanitized. How difficult is it to install and how long did it take?

I took the above advice to replace my vinyl tubing with TygonÂ® UV Resistant Tubing 3/8" I.D. I am not sure if I found the best deal but I have delt with this company in the past and so far I am happy. The tubing runs about $1.65 per ft so it's not cheap. I have had my unit in use for about three months and the inside of the tubing has clouded and looks a little messy. A few weeks ago, I noticed a reduced amount of CL getting into my pool. The unit has been running great. So this prompted me to troubleshoot. I am also replacing the check valves. On the same site, you will see the similar check valve used. The opening is .25 which would account for the impact on the flow when I removed it. I am going to test out a 3/8" FNPT Polypropylene Check Valve which has an opening of .438.
