Here is one compatible with the Hayward.?? What is that?
Do you mix your own acid mix or just buy something like thisI use a skinny bucket... I made the mistake one year of using a bucket with a small leak in it and I put on the top step.. my plaster didn't like that.
Thanks for the tip. I found two drain caps online so I decided just to buy that so I can contain the liquid inside the cell.I make my own.. just dilute some MA in water, 4 parts water to 1 part acid.. Always pour the acid into the water, not the other way around. Let it sit until it stops bubbling . I've tried various things, like different diameter buckets, plugging the end of the cell and suspending it in a a bucket of water so my acid wash is more on the inside of the cell and less on the outside. I take the used acid wash and dump it in my pool. Unless I have a reason to I only acid wash it once a year.
Thanks! I just found the drain caps solution myself for the Jandy. I am going to use those. Its a new cell (less than a year) so I figure its worth the peace of mind.I just taped one end of my IC60 and would refill for whatever slowly leaked out. Kept telling myself I’d take it to the plumbing supply one day and make a cap for it but never got there. This year I looked it up trying to find the sizing to make one and they sell pre made ones like the stand that gocubs posted. Pentair makes a cap and a stand. Yours is all in one. Anyway $17 and it was delivered the next day. 6 years I covered myself in acid rain pulling off the tape job. Should have googled it on day 1. The ultimate kicker is I also had to replace the IC60 and 2 weeks later the new one came with 2 caps. Now I have 3 sitting in my garage that sit there making fun of me. Feast or famine I guess.
