    vacuum feed chlorinator

    I have a vacuum feed chlorine device that fits into the top of my 2 gallon jug of chlorine and have had it working great for 10 years just sipping a jug for about a month. But as with everything pool its time has come. Do you know of any device that fits into a 2 gallon jug and sips the chlorine out only while the pool pump is rinning? There is no name on the device.
    Thank you...

    Can I second the vote for a pic?? I'd love to see this thing. I'm sure they use a needle valve to adjust the flow. With a pic I could probably recreate it.

    If you find no pool sources, try a lawn irrigation company - a friend of mine has a similar setup to deliver insecticide and fertilizer. It uses a tank and a siphon hose (with the already mentioned needle valve to control delivery rate) on the pressure side of the pump. Very simple, pretty effective, but I think he told me it costs a couple hundred installed and calibrated.
