    Ordered 85MHP5 - Stenner Pump

    I am 3 days (give or take the weekend) from setting up the chlorination system.

    So far ordered:
    267.40 85MHP5
    18.99 Recycled 15 Gallon Plastic Drum
    -------
    286.39

    I did pay an additional 24$ in shipping to get them here quicker

    So total cost: 310.39

    I plan to bury the tank in the ground to reduced chemical degradation in the summer. I need to rig up some kind of level indicator so that I can check the level without having to look inside.

    You could get a drum gauge or if you're handy you can make one from PVC materials.

    Im fairly handy -- will probably go the PVC route - telescope a thin pipe inside another with some kind of float on the foot...

    That's what I was thinking. You really don't need anything to tell you how many gallons are in there, just something to tell you that you need to add some more to it.
