Re: Chlorine Tablets in the skimmer
Inline chorinators are plumbed AFTER the pump and heater so the chlorinated water is returned to the pool and does not go through the equipment. They also do not 'dispense' the chlorine unless the pump is running and many have check valves before gthem to prevent the heavily chlorinated and acidic water from backing up into the heater. The actual chlorinators themselves are made of materials that are desgined to stand up to the low pH and high chlorine levels (such as speical o-ring materials, etc.) but they still do show degredaton after a period of time.
