    Tired of tablets

    Ok all up til now I have been using trichlor tabs and making adjustments with Bleach. This is becoming an issue now that my CYA is nearing 70. What i am after is a method to automatically dispense the chlorine (bleach) into the pool. I don't want to break the bank doing it though. I will measure the FC this morning and again this evening to get an idea of the daily consumption. I am fine with the 70 cya for the remainder of the season here as I will dump about 2.5k at closing.

    You could try this...

    I did it for a year, and a half... then I got a Stenner at a price I could not turn down... I'm still dialing that one in, but it has only been installed for 48 hours now.

    That's a really cool idea! I was thinking of something similar with a timer.
