    New Stenner Pump install

    Recently installed a Stenner Pump it’s the 85 17gpd pump. If I did it right it should pump around 1.51 oz a minute. It has a #2 tube. Would it be best to pump chlorine into pool 1st thing in morning all at once while sun isn’t out to get more life out of the chlorine before the sun kills it. Do...

    Liquid chlorine pump.

    Here’s how I got it setup. Used the pump for the 1st time today. Have it hooked up to the WiFi timer mentioned above. Is it best to put chlorine in different times of day or all at once. Eventually going to get another timer for pool pump to turn off at night time.

    Liquid chlorine pump.

    Looking on amazon I see the stenner45 mphp10 for $269 and I also see a stenner 85mphp17 for $ $244. Would the 85 be a better pump since it has a higher gpd.

    Closing question

    Just tested the pool water. Seems to be about 72 degrees. How critical is it to wait till 60* if you put algicide in pool. Cover is solid.

    Closing question

    Not sure what all kind of algicide my local pool place has. Does it have to be poly 60. So my chlorine needs to be back down to normal levels before adding algicide

    Closing question

    Closing the pool now. Brought the Chlorine level up to slam level. Had the wife go to pool store to get some algicide, she came home with baquacil algicide. Will this be ok to use.

    Shocking question

    I don't buy any of that stuff anymore. Was wondering if I need to shock like once a week with liquid bleach. My thinking is no as long as the pool water is balanced properly and my CC is 0

    Chlorine and stabilizer question

    As of now my pump runs 24/7. Going to do something in the future (timer) but that's a post for another day. Just downloaded the pool app so I believe that will be a big help. What's your opinion on algaecide. I would like to add some for preventive measures.

    Chlorine and stabilizer question

    Using the Taylor test kit. When I add the drops to turn sample from pink to clear on the chlorine test. I count the drops then multiply. Sometimes over the course of a few minutes my sample will turn back to a lite pink color. Does that matter

    Chlorine and stabilizer question

    Couple more questions. Them stenner pumps are about half the price of the swcg. My pool is roughly 26,000 gallons. How much chlorine would you have to add to maintain a pool of this size. I know there is a bunch of different variables to consider, I'm just wanting a guesstimate. Also read that...
