    New Stenner Install

    So I got my Stenner pump installed this past weekend. I went with a 85MP2 and 15gal tank. I also got an extra relay for my Aqualink control system. So relay that controls the Stenner only gets power when the main pump is on. I then can use my iAqualink app to turn the Stenner pump on and off. I will set it on a schedule as i get a more accurate daily dosage going into summer.

    A few questions for those with Stenner pumps.... Lets say your pool uses 50oz of bleach a day... How would you typically run the Stenner for that dosage? I calculated my pump to about 1.5oz a minute. So run it in the morning for 33min? Or run it maybe 10 min then 10 min again at noon and 10 min in the evening?

    Right now as I get the hang of the Stenner and getting my pool CYA up a little more (running around 40 right now) and the Texas sun starting to really shine.... i am taking my FC reading in the morning.... so whatever i need to get back up to about 5 or 6 FC... i calculate the run time and divide by two..... so i run the pump in the morning and again in the evening.

    Again... this has only been a couple of days so far.... so just looking to get some input from others and how
    they manage their setups.

    Here are a few pictures.

    I run mine 3 rimes a day now. 15-15-10 minutes. 8am -3pm-8pm. I get better control of FC levels that way. I keep CYA at 45 that way all I need is 5.5 FC levels for our upcoming hot sunny days. Nice pad setup!

    Re: New Stenner Install

    As you are discovering you have to make adjustments.

    I run mine once in the middle of the day (my winter pattern) but will soon switch to twice a day to get better coverage for less chlorine.

    Re: New Stenner Install

    Haven't got to the point of having to make adjustments as I'm just starting out with the Stenner pump. So like last night around 8pm my FC was 3.5. I tested this morning at 7:15am and it was 2.5. So to get it to 5FC the calculator says I need 63oz. So I'm going to run my pump 3 times today for 15 minutes each time... 8:15am, 12pm, 6:45pm. Will test again tonight and see where my FC stands.

    Think I will raise CYA to about 50 in the next week or so. Other then that our pool is crystal clear... Hoping it stays that way!

    Re: New Stenner Install

    Very cool. That is adjustable (start/stop/run time & scheduling) via your iAqualink too?

    Re: New Stenner Install

    Chris,

    Yes... I added a relay inside my Aqualink control box.... So I can use the web interface or iPhone app to set a schedule like you would the main pump and cleaner. From the relay it goes to the outlet on the wall, then the Stenner just plugs into that. Inside the Aqualink control box, i have the power coming from the main pump relay.... so the Stenner relay will only have power when the main pump is on.... this is a for sure way the Stenner does not run when the main pump is off. So if I take a reading in the morning and i need to adjust the run time of the Stenner, its pretty easy to do.

    I agree with increasing your CYA to 50, good plan.

    Re: New Stenner Install

    What is the cylinder that is at your injection point? Is that an old tablet chlorinator? Just curious....

    Re: New Stenner Install

    Yeah.... it was part of the equipment package with the pool. Makes for an easy place to attach the injector. Pool company gave me a very small bucket of tricolor pucks..... I used them at first to build up some CYA, but they are all gone now... Started TFP basically since day one of the pool. Wanted the Stenner before this summer cause we tend to travel more often during summer.

    That is really cool and I have a pretty much identical set up with the chlorinator. I'll be pinging you with questions in a few months if that's okay.

    I'd like to do this for acid some day. Is there a clicking noise, and if so, is it a bother?

    Re: New Stenner Install

    No clicking noise... I bought a fixed rate pump. The adjustable pumps I have heard make a clicking noise.... But I don't have any experience with one. Thanks for the compliments..... I enjoy it as well.... Had it poured a bit larger for the purpose of adding a Stenner and storage tank...

    Re: New Stenner Install

    I run my stenner twice per day - 10am and 2pm, here in Tucson, AZ. This will be the second year I've had my stenner and I couldn't be happier. In the winter, I was dosing it about 18 oz/day. Mid March I increased to 27 oz when my FC began to drop below 7 (CYA 70). At the end of March I again increased to 36 oz and my FC is holding near 8.5 for the last week. I measure in the early morning every 2 to 3 days.

    What is the connection you used for the injection into the tablet feeder?

    I was thinking of adding this type of set up to my in ground pool w a cartridge filter.

    Can you give me an approx cost?
    What the main components you needed?

    Re: New Stenner Install

    The pump comes with the injector. The high pressure pumps come with an injector that also acts as a check valve. Either injector will work... It threads right into the inline chlorinator.

    I am using the 1/4" tubing. Black tubing for UV protection and grey 15 gallon tank.
