    Us CDC (center disease control) and residential pools

    The final takeaway from the paper for me was the recommended ratio of 20:1 for CYA/FC. Excellent paper (not that I understood all the statistics and formulas)

    Here is what electrical hardware I bought for powering the Stenner. A 6 foot 1/2 inch liquid tight flex conduit with wires already installed with fittings, 250 volt receptacle for Stenner, surface mount non metallic electrical box and weatherproof cover.

    Stenner with Tank Mounting

    I was wondering, if this is the right thread for me to add my step by step install for Stenner/w tank? I have learned a lot from previous posts and that is the only reason I want to do this. Do I post every step I take to install or wait until the install is complete. My selfish reason to post...

    Stenner with Tank Mounting

    Its probably too late to change, but, my unit came with a white tank. Shall I try to spray paint it black or wrap around a black vinyl liner or something? Leaving town in about a week. I feel like I need to hurry and finish the install.

    Stenner with Tank Mounting

    The pump/tank will be exposed to the elements, but I guess that's not a problem with this unit as I have learned in previous posts.

    Stenner with Tank Mounting

    Here is another view. The area is under a roof. A little wooden platform of soime kind with straps as you suggest would work nice. The boss would like esthetically pleasing structure. I will look on Amazon to see what's available. Still, feel free to suggest any other ideas.

    Stenner Pump w/tank

    Thanks for clarifying the connection. So, it looks like some plumbing is still required. I was hoping that I could just drill a hole in the return line and glue in or clamp in some kind of fitting. - - - Updated - - - Sounds good as for the installation timing. The best price I see for the...

    Stenner Pump w/tank
