    New pool - goin BBB via stenner pump

    We had a 27' x 52" AG pool installed a few days ago.
    I'm still in the process of filling it.
    The package included a pool frog which I did not have any plans for using.
    The installers hooked it up so its there and doesnt bother me.
    I have a 1.5 HP 2 speed pump and cartridge filter.
    I'm in to reef aquariums and have invested in equipment that reduces the work involved to keep water perameters in check.
    I decided to take the same approach with the pool.
    I ordered http://www.uswatersystems.com/shop/prod ... -Pump.html
    Its the 85 high pressure adjustable model.
    I also ordered the 30 gallon storage tank from stenner.
    I have approx 17,200 gallons of water and have no clue yet how much chlorine it will consume.
    I'm sure the pump and tank are over sized but I can always tapier down.
    I'm planning on putting the tank in the ground.
    So I have a few questions...
    Should I take the pool frog off?
    Where should I tap for injection?
    What is a "ballpark" amount of chlorine consumtion on a pool my size. I'm in north west Indiana and get full sun on the pool from 10:00am - 4:30am.
    27' AGP, stenner pump, 30 gallon holding tank, 2hp two speed pump, cartridge filter, 12.5% liquid chlorine.

    I would leave it since it's already installed. Just take the mineral pack out and open the control knob wide open.

    Where should I tap for injection?
    I tapped the return line just past the filter.

    You should figure about 2 - 3 ppm per day. In 17,000 gallons that'll be between 2½ and 3½ quarts per day or 80 to 112 oz per day. That 17gpd pump is going to be way over sized but the good thing is that you can run it a very short period of time.
