    Clorox through auto puck chlorinator?

    I have an unused puck auto chlorinator. Just wondering if you can gravity feed a 10-15 gallon drum of Clorox into the existing cavity? Can you get a low enough flow rate with the existing valve? I know you can pump into this, but I would think gravity might do it....

    No, it won't work, there is also an explosion risk if the feeder was ever used with trichlor tablets.

    You can build a feeder that runs off of pump suction losing irrigation flow control buttons. There is a long running topic somewhere in the chemical automation area about that.
