I've searched all the 'stenner' TFP threads and would like some advice on the proper stenner setup to get. Can any folks who have travelled this path help me as I make the switch from pucks to liquid chlorine automation please.
Current pool readings (using my taylor 2006 kit):
I know my CYA/FC is high and I'm about to drain/refill and get all back in balance with lower numbers. Just fired my pool service tech today. I will manually get my chems balanced but want to prepare in buying the right gear to be more automated. I should know my chlorine demand within the next month. I wouldn't think I need to wait until then to identify and buy the gear.
I have no automation on any of my equipment and have intermatic mechanical timers (one for main pump and one unused which used to service Polaris) which I think are 240V (I can measure later). All of my pool equipment is on the backside of my garage, and I have easy access to 120v outlet on other side of wall.
I Think I Need:
After researching the threads, it seems like the 45MPHP10 with rain hat and 1/4 black tube (UV protection) is what I need along with the grey 15gal container. I plan to use a timer to dump at 2-3 times a day and have yet to figure out what I need here.
- can someone confirm this is the right gear for a full setup?
- does one company have a kit that contains all I need to make this setup work?
- Is it possible to plug the pump into a timer with a schedule and that timer plugs into to a 120 outlet? If so, what make/model works? If not, what is a reliable timer?
How to plumb:
I believe I need to tap the chlorine output line into after all equipment on the return line. A few questions here:
- I assume I need to install a chlorine resistant check valve to protect my gear?
- Can I tap the line to install the chlorine output line or should I just install a T and install the chlorine line in the T (since I have to install the check valve)?
Thanks in advance for the advice and guidance.
