Chemical or chlorine pool feeders can make adding harsh chemicals to your pool a more simple and safe process. Chlorine is the most common chemical used to treat residential pools; it keeps your swimming pool clean, kills bacteria and prevents algae from growing. The type of pool chemical feeder you own and the form of chlorine used depends on the type and size of pool it feeds to.
Types of chemical feeders:
- Floating chlorinators (tablet). These chemical feeders can vary in size and float on the water’s surface. Chlorine tablets or sticks slowly dissolve into the pool as water flows over them.
- Automatic chlorinators (tablet). These types of chlorine pool feeders are normally installed at the filter system. They use pressure to slowly dissolve chlorine tablets or sticks into your pool.
- Liquid chlorine feeders. These chlorine feeders are required to be installed in an indoor room so they’re protected from the elements. An output control dial on these feeders allows for an easier way to regulate the amount of chlorine injected into the water.
Chlorine Tablet Feeder Repair Some issues that can arise with tablet feeders are:
- The chlorine tablets are not dissolving. Your chlorinator could have malfunctioning hoses or calcium buildup. We will diagnose the issue on site and determine if a repair or replacement is necessary.
- The chlorine tablets are dissolving too slowly. Again, this issue could have to do with wrongfully attached hoses, calcium buildup, or an air lock causing the feeder to not work properly. Water needs to be able to have contact with the tablets in order to dissolve, but if the water is being blocked in some way, your automatic feeder will not work.
Your automatic pool chlorinators should be cleaned and lubricated annually, and off line chlorinator hoses should be serviced or replaced every year to prevent clogging or breakage. The experts at Royal Pool & Spa have the tools and resources to be able to handle concentrated amounts of pool chemicals during a routine feeder maintenance or repair.
Liquid Chlorine Feeder Repair
Every few years, these feeders will require occasional repair or replacement of hoses and internal parts, depending on the amount of use. The most common issue with liquid chlorine feeders is a pesky leak. It is especially important to regularly check the hose lines of the liquid chloride feeder; if any holes or tears are present, unsafe amounts of chlorine could be pumped into the pool.
