    DIY automatic chlorinator.

    I was wondering if anyone has made one? I had a thought if you were to place a small hose in front of the return would that create the vacuum to pull the liquid out of a container. You could use a ball valve to dial in the proper amount. Or maybe plumb in a T after the pump with a check valve.
    1) The size of your pool in gallons 4440.
    2) The type filter you have is an Intex 2500 gph and it has a re-useable fabric filter
    3) If your pool is an AG (above ground)
    4) Intex 15 by 48 metal frame.
    5) If you know, tell us the size pump 2500gph and the size (flow rate) of your filter.
