The Frog Pool Tender Cycler should always be installed between the filter return line and the return jet of the pool (or outlet of heater and return jet of pool if applicable). Never install the Frog Pool Tender Cycler before the heater. Any additional sanitizing equipment that is installed with Frog Pool Tender Cycler must be installed after Frog Pool Tender Cycler (never before) on the return line to the pool.
