    This was helpful...a link posted above....^^^^...Read Preparing Pool for Cooler Months - Further Reading. My only challenge is where to add liquid chlorine since I'd prefer not to have to roll back the cover each time. I've been applying the LC via the low to the water pour in method as I walk...

    Winterize pool in North Carolina?

    Hey, chiming in here with comments and a question about winterization chemical levels. I live in Chapel Hill, NC just outside of Raleigh. We have about 20-30 nights of freezing weather from Nov - Mar. I have 3 different systems - the pool/spa pump and filter, spa jet pump, and then a...

    Spa Jet Water Backflow through Pump Air Vent

    I just removed the nozzle jets directly on the spa wall. I think they are Pentair based nozzles but I'll check. On you question of "nozzles deep inside the spa wall", I'm not sure if there are inner nozzles. The nozzles I have and I removed to ensure they were clean screw in and out, and are...

    Spa Jet Water Backflow through Pump Air Vent

    I'm having an issue where when I put the spa jet pump on, it causes water to back-flow out the air vents near the equipment pad/spa pump. Previously the spa water/air jets have worked fine. I can't quite remember the exact date they stopped working but probably April 2020, shortly after spring...

    Liquid Chlorine Injection

    Not sure what you mean here by "low voltage from the Jandy"? Do you know of any resources or examples of folks controlling their Stenners from their Jandy pool controller?

    Liquid Chlorine Injection

    One additional note, I called Jandy Tech Support, and they were not really helpful. They just said I need to hire a Jandy Technician, which I can do, just thought it was not that hard with a little instruction!

    Liquid Chlorine Injection

    After much support from you all above and the other Stenner examples, I've researched and really like the stenner pump option. I think I now know the specs and set up for the pump, container, line integration. My question now is about the controller/timer. I see many folks go with the simple and...

    Liquid Chlorine Injection

    @Yev great point. Now that my pool is not a swamp anymore, I will run it with the 1G containers first to see how this goes since as you say it may not be that much volume. Another set up I'm thinking about is even lower tech and simpler. Have the 15lb drum delivered to my north side of house...

    Liquid Chlorine Injection

    I recently saw an article post by @Bama Rambler about liquid chlorine injection. I have a large, 40K G pool with significant high chlorine need. I've recently switched from a puck feeder system to the TFP method with Liquid Chlorine - with great success I might add. Other than Walmart or other...

    How do you add liquid chlorine?

    I noticed in this response that you have an injections system. I'd like to learn more about that. I recently went away from pucks to liquid chlorine and am following the TFP method with great success - thank you. I have access to 15 gallon liquid chlorine carboy to be delivered to my house as...
