    New Build - Stenner Pump?

    In the midst of our build...gunite next week.
    After reading a lot on here I think I want to buy a Stenner pump. I really like the tfpc method but hate the idea of adding bleach manually everyday. I asked the builder if he had heard of a stenner pump and while not that brand , he was familiar with automating liquid chlorine and said it's the best method. He has no problem installing the pump when they put in the rest of the equipment. He said he would wire the stenner to run with the filter. It's a variable speed pump.

    My dilemma is I have no idea what my baseline chemical levels will be or how much chlorine I'll need to be adding daily. We have no shade so the pool will be getting a lot of North Texas sun. I think I will need CYA around 50-60 based on other threads I've read. Pool is 17,333 gallons. What size Stenner should I buy and how big of a tank to hold the bleach?
    What's the best place to purchase?


    Thanks for any input - I would prefer the builder to install this Stenner rather than adding after the fact.

    I think my thread will,answer most of your questions. My Stenner Install - July 2014

    It cost a little more, but Stenner makes a really nice thank that the pump mounts to. I think it's 15 gallons.

    Thanks for the reply - I found a good deal on this stenner 45MHP2 Feeder and Tank System .2 to 3 GPD. Would this work? Also, what size tubing should I purchase? Free shipping, gest me out the door for under $500 bucks so I hope this is it.

    Here is the link to the system I found: Stenner STS Model 45MHP2 Feeder and Tank System 0.2 GPD to 3.0 GPD: The Purchase Advantage

    I went with black UV 3/8" tubing. US Watersystems may save you a few dollars, but not sure about the shiping now so it may be a wash.
