    Stenner Pump Setup

    Can someone provide links or maybe a complete setup with everything I would need to do the Stenner pump chlorinator from start to finish? I've looked through the posts, but am still confused as to what I need for the complete setup (tubing, valves, size of pump, size of tank, etc.). There may be a very clear post somewhere, but I haven't found it yet...

    Re: Stenner Pump Setup

    Do you plan on running it on the same timer as the main pump, or will it have it's own timer?
    How often would you like to go between filling the tank?
    How much chlorine in ppm do you use per day now?
    Do you vary the run time of the main pump, say if your swimming?
    Do you have any water features that run at odd times?

    Re: Stenner Pump Setup

    Dave,

    I don't have a timer on my pump; here we run them 24/7 so the Stenner would need a timer of its own. I do have a two speed pump but rarely turn it to low cause I forget to turn it back to high in the morning!!

    No water features other than a slide that hooks up to a hydrant.

    I would like to only have to fill the tank with bleach about once every 10 days to two weeks.

    Right now I am going through about 288 oz of 6% bleach per day. CYA is at 40, but pool is in direct sunlight all day long. Thinking CYA needs bumped up.

    Re: Stenner Pump Setup

    I'd go with the 10gpd fixed output pump and get a timer to operate it. I'd also get at least a 15 gallon drum or larger. Get the high pressure pump as it comes with the injection check valve. Also get the ¼" black tubing. All that comes with the pump. You can get the tank from them too, but a used drum is a lot cheaper. However it doesn't look as good.

    You're losing about 6 ppm FC per day. That's way too much. I'd run an OCLT to see if anything is growing and if you pass, I'd raise the CYA to about 60 ppm.

    Thanks all for the info!!

    Dave,
    I figured that was way too much to be losing as well. I did the OCLT and am not losing anything overnight. No CC's as well. That was how I came to the conclusion that it must be all the sunlight and the CYA was too low.

    Re: Stenner Pump Setup

    Just to put it into perspective - I am using 12-16% a day of 12.5% bleach. I am direct sun 98.2% of the day. (of course I don't have sun all day due to clouds, etc.)

    Wonder if you got a dose of bad bleach ? But your numbers are CRAZY high - at least in my opinion.
