    D. Marc has been doing daily checks since the chlorine pump has not been working correctly. Changed pump seems to be working better needs to be primed often since it gets air bubbles. Marc was checking to see if it is the correct pump since we keep having problems. He ordered a liquid end for the old LMI Drive and that has been put in and that is what we are using now.
