    Automated Liquid Chlorination system

    As to the feed tube from the Stenner to the injection point, I use a length 3/4 flexible conduit to encase the feed tubing. The injection point is just the right size to fit snugly in the 3/4 conduit. Keeps the sun out...

    skippy fountain knockoff thoughts

    I have constructed a fountain using the yippeeskippy method of re-purposing the Polaris 380 port. Slightly different however in water delivery. I used some spare 1/2" sprinkler parts. Do I need to be concerned about back-pressure having knecked the outlet down to 1/2"? My Polaris is still...

    Stenner liquid chlorine pump - How to choose and install

    The inline model's body can be unscrewed from its T-fitting. I then re-purposed the T to attach the Stenner injection point. There is one gotcha though, there is a set screw in the vertical T component. Feel around under the feeder body to find it. Remove it before you unscrew the body so...

    Pump hanging from plumbing..or.. equipment pad subsiding

    Noticed a while back that equipment pad is subsiding in the front where the pump is plumbed. I added some shims to hopefully help take the weight off pvc. Hoping it stops subsiding. Not sure I want to tackle leveling pad just yet. So, I notice there are some notches in the pump stand that...

    Suggestion - PoolMath app

    Tracking based on pump rating oz/minute. 4.44 in my case if my math was right. Never can tell there tho... Drum level given amount added less doses over time. I also try to measure inches of product in drum and given its diameter, a volume as a sanity check.
