    Pulled the trigger on a Stenner, bleach injection here I come...

    Since this website helped me get my swamp of a pool back into shape this season I've been only using bleach. The daily "glug, glug, glug" while kneeling in front of a return is getting old fast. I've already missed a night by mistake and would really like to automate this process.

    After much reading of threads I decided it's worth money and effort to have one less thing to worry about. Today I pulled the trigger on a 45MHP10 and a 15 gallon tank, along with a couple of spare tubes.

    I'm going the old school electro-mechanical Intermatic route slaved to my existing pool pump electro-mechanical Intermatic. I got the adjustable Stenner version so dialing in the proper dosage should be easy once I have a base runtime setup. Being an electrical engineer this is very much in my comfort zone.

    Thanks for all the collective info here members! I'll be posting updates and photos as the hardware arrives and the project gets underway.

    The Stenner has added alot more enjoyment to my pool. Ridding myself of the daily worry of pool maintence has really helpped.

    I really miss the little white spots from the chlorine splashing on my clothes.

    I guess you could still get your share of bleach stains while filling the tank, no?

    Yes but I'm hoping to only do that once a month.

    If you cut the bottom off a bleach bottle you can make a big funnel. I also cut a U shape piece out of the side so the top of the carboy fits in it, very little if any splash.

    I got a Stenner pump this year, as the last straw for me just this summer gone, was the destruction of MY STARWARS T-SHIRT And a Simpsons T-Shirt, and in all honesty, about $100 worth of my fave summer t-shirts.....

    Re: Pulled the trigger on a Stenner, bleach injection here I come...

    Well while waiting for my Stenner and tank to arrive I rethought the electrical side of this. I decided to ditch my old single Intermatic (filter pump) and go for a new double Intermatic. Simplifies things as I installed the two outlet boxes (complete with NEMA 6-20 receptacles, one for filter pump and one for Stenner) with covers right on the Intermatic enclosure. I can wire up the Intermatic enclosure slaving the Stenner so it can only run when the filter pump runs, put the inside cover back on that will hide all the wiring and I'll be done with it.

    I just got a shipment notification and UPS tracking number for my Stenner pump and tank from US Water Systems, it took 10 days. I've got spoiled with Amazon Prime...at your door in 2 days.

    Re: Pulled the trigger on a Stenner, bleach injection here I come...

    Got the Stenner pump and tank setup today. Had to remove the 3 foot tall stockade fencing I had hiding the filter, dug out bit of grass and put down patio block/bricks in sand as a base for the tank.

    There was a plumbing fitting after the puck chlorinator that tapped water for the Polaris booster pump. I dumped the Polaris and got a Dolphin Nautilus, so I just needed to get an adapter to screw in the Stenner injector/check valve. I'll leave the old puck feeder for now.

    The area needs cleanup and a new fence, I just focused on getting it plumbed and operating. Did a run tonight, it worked fine...very happy camper!

    Thanks to everyone who as posted info on their installs, it gave me the motivation to do mine.

    Beautiful install!!

    Mine has been running for about two weeks. By sheer luck it is keeping my FC in my sweet spot of 6 - 9ppm.

    Very nice setup! I've ordered my stenner last week and am impatiently waiting for it to ship from US Water Systems. Spoiled by Amazon Prime is right!
    Do you have any info on your solar system? I've been thinking of rigging up something similar myself

    Update:
    I just love my Stenner bleach injection setup. The past week has been hectic for me (being out every night without coming home from work first) but without a care or worry my pool's daily chlorine need is taken care of automatically. I'm still checking the FC level daily when I can, but it just bounces between my minimum and maximum levels rather well...dependent upon just when I do the FC test. If you are on the fence about doing this yourself, go for it!
