    Stenner liquid chlorine pump - How to choose and install

    You’re quite right. Heater won’t turn on until it senses flow (pressure) and water temp hasn’t reached set point. If the pump is switched off while the heater burner is still on, a built-in “fireman switch” continues to run the pump for 20 minutes to provide a cool-down transition before...

    Stenner liquid chlorine pump - How to choose and install

    My heater/circulation pump/booster pump/Stenner pump setup: I have a Jandy Lite 2 Heater equipped with the optional Jandy relay, which facilitates operating the heater in what they call the "Internal Time Clock" mode. The on-off duty cycle for the main pump is thus set up and controlled by...

    Stenner liquid chlorine pump - How to choose and install

    I'm in the process of doing some replumbing to improve accessibility and replace some troublesome ball valves. My pool is in-ground and the equipment is all below water level (no pump priming issues). I have a DIY Stenner chlorine injection system, plumbed into the return line, which has been...

    Adding bleach to hot tub

    Looks like a winner! I found them more reasonably-priced on Ebay. This should do the trick. Thanks

    Adding bleach to hot tub

    I’m wondering if there isn’t some kind of a “shot” dispenser, a bottle which would pour 1 oz at a time.

    Adding bleach to hot tub

    OK, all you spa Dichlor/Bleach practitioners, I’m curious as to how you actually add bleach to your hot tub on a regular basis. My wife and I are senior citizens and more than a little shaky when it comes to pouring out and adding a couple ounces of Clorox bleach to the tub. Historically...

    Mesh Covers vs. Tarps

    How about using a solid tarp with a few grommet holes around the center to let water through? Would this not be the same, effectively, as a solid cover with a mesh panel in the middle? If water level rises in the pool over the winter (as it does in my case, in the Seattle area), I simply...

    Leave the cover off all winter?????

    I'm in Seattle with an in-ground pool. Over the wet winter months, my pool generally GAINS water rather than loses. During the warmer part of the year, I use a solar cover when the pool temp is above 60 and more susceptible to algae growth. After the pool temp drops below 60 and I can cut way...

    Another Stenner pump fan

    Based on the excellent information shared by members of this forum, I have joined the “satisfied customer” list by installing a liquid chlorine injection system, using the 15-gallon drum and the Stenner pump that several others have used. My setup is shown in the following photos: As you...

    SimplePool App for Android. A Review.

    Ken, I've been using Simplepool Pro for about 6 weeks and really like it. Unfortunately, I can't keep up with future updates as I have a phone that is stuck on Android 2.1. In order to keep current with SimplePool as it evolves, I've been considering getting a different phone or, possibly, a...

    Droid App - Wrote my Own

    Is there any way (short of making an additional new data entry) of correcting a saved set of measurements? An erroneous piece of data sort of screws up the graphing history, unless there is some way of either correcting it or, alternately, deleting that data set and re-entering it.

    Droid App - Wrote my Own

    Hi Ken I finally solved my phone problems and have been able to install the Lite version of SimplePool and like it very much. Nice job! As I recall, you previously said, in the near future, updates will no longer support Android OS 2.1. My phone is pretty much a dinosaur and can't be updated...

    Pump Replacement - Help

    I'm considering replacing both my main circulation pump (1 hp Sta-Rite DuraGlas) and booster pump (3/4 hp, A.O. Smith motor, driving a Polaris 380). Flowmeter on return line shows a flowrate of 53 gpm. From measurements made a couple years ago, I had a pump suction pressure of -15" Hg and a...
