    Which Stenner to Buy

    OK, I'm going to get one of the stenner pumps to automate my chlorine. I am looking at 3gpd, 10gpd, 22gpd...the cost is the same at 208. Which one should I get? I understand the math of how many minutes to run each one but what are the adv and disadv to each? Thank you.

    Are those fixed models?
    Are you planning on running it on a separate timer?

    With your pool being 14,000 gallons, 3gpd pump is plenty large enough. However, I suggest getting the 10gpd model. It gives you more flexibility in run time.

    Bama, yes fixed. Thanks for the recommendation. I need about half a gallon a day during summer in PHX so that means about 70 minutes or so on a 10gpd pump.

    Daniel, here's the link. I was wrong it's 202, even better.

    Thanks, I will have to get one before next vacation. I'm on vacation now worrying about my pool.
