    DIY off-line chlorinator

    How hard would it be to make an offline chlorinator out of PVC for a 84k gallon pool? The chlorinator that we currently have is used to keep the fc from dropping below .5 to 1 ppm and we use granular cal hypo to keep it at 2-3 ppm. The chlorinator we have now is a Biolab that is about 3' tall. It will only take sticks and it's hard to find sticks in my rural community. I'd like to be able to use tabs.

    I've also looked at the Rainbows from Pentair. Maybe I could get an extension so that I don't have to go by there everyday.
    Commercial, 84,000 galloned, sand filtered, inground, plastered, 240gpm classic.

    Pentair makes some very large commercial trichlor feeders, see their product page for more information.
