Wasnt sure what section to post this in.
I am starting to think about designing a cheap way to constantly add bleach to my pool.
I have seen people using that liquidator, and also the pump systems.
All I am interested in really building is a system that will open a valve at certain intervals for a set amount of time, and I will adjust the timings if my chlorine trends upward or downware.
Knowing the flow rate of my system would also give me the ability to put a "+1 ppm" pushbutton on it that i press and it opens the valve for the right amount of time to let enough bleach to flow to raise my ppm up by 1, so if i test, or if i want to shock, I just go push the button the appropriate amount of times.
I have the solenoid valves, the tubing, and the electronics to throw this all together, what I am interested in is some suggestions for tank, or any features that might be nice for something small like this.
I was thinking of just getting a 5 gallon container (like one of those water cooler jugs), putting it in a wooden box near the pool (built up to look like a patio table or even a planter with a plant on top) and then running it that way.
I was also looking for suggestions on how you think I could run the line to the pool to get the bleach in it. I was thinking of maybe drilling a small hole in the return pipe and putting a fitting or something in there to attach the tube from the bleach dispensor.
Thanks for any thoughts/suggestions!
