    Automatic chlorine feeder?

    I'm building a pool that has Hayward equipment. It is a chlorine pool so I'm wondering if I should have the PB install an automatic chlorinater.
    Any suggestions?

    i am not entirely familar with a automatic chlorinater. Just to be sure is this something that will use liquid chlorine or will it be something that you load tabs or pucks into?

    We don't recommend using tablet feeders, which is what I believe you are talking about. However, they can be nice to have for things like vacations, so it is often simplest to let it be installed and then decide if you want to use it later.

    I am with Jason on this one. For as little as they cost have the PB install the puck feeder. You can run with it off line and BBB or Liquid chlorine sanitize. But if you BBB and want to go on vacation it will be nice to have the ability to throw a couple pucks in and be covered. If you plan on going SWG then never mind with the feeder.
