hi guys, First Post!!
I just purchased a new home with a pool. found this site and decided i would try my hand at maintaining myself before paying the pool guy $150/month. So far this site and the BBB method are great except for the daily bleach additions...
which brings me to my question. Has anyone tried using a dosmatic chemical injector to automate the bleach adding process?
I have used one of these at work to mix bleach and water for equipment sanitation purposes. It worked great, mixed about 2 gallons a day for over a year before having to do any maintenance. I was thinking i would T off the water return line and install one of these guys, i could use a ball valve to control flow into the unit which in turn would control the amount of bleach. Anyway im still getting to know my pool but after i have a good feel for chlorine usage and necessary pump run time i will crunch some numbers to see if one of these guys is a feasible way to automate the chlorinating process.
Any input is appreciated
