    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    For now I put in 15 gallons and will see how and IF the FC increases consistently with the set time limits. Although my tank will never see direct sunlight, it is outside and subject to the heat. The bleach I added has a date of June 19 and is 10%. I know there are lots of variables that...

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    Very happy with my pump. Connected to a Kasa wifi plug and it runs 10 minutes twice a day about 12 hours apart. Roughly 90oz of 10% bleach every 24 hours. Keeps FC around 7. Plumbed in a new 3 way Jandy, elbows and union while I had the system opened

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    I see in your signature you have 1.5" plumbing as well so your injection fitting should look just like mine right? I ask because I saw a post on this forum about someone with 1.5" plumbing and he said that he needed to use the 1/2" to 1/4" reducer because his fitting kept bottoming out. Perhaphs...

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    Kept it simple and picked up the stenner pump/tank combo. Did some water testing today and the 50gpd pump moves 5oz every 1:07. Should be able to dial this pump in with a timer very easily. Question, when threading the injection fitting into the new piece of 1.5" threaded pipe, the fitting...

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    Order the pump and tank. Settled on the 50gpd, 1/4" black tubing at 25psi with a 30 gallon tank. Instead of drilling/tapping an elbow I think I would rather use a tee. Is this the right size? My plumbing is 1.5" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009F3JSLK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_3IO-EbP8KYWB5 My...

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    Good advice 👍 On another note, what causes bleech to breakdown quicker......sunlight or heat? I have a shed that is approximately 10 feet away from my equipment pad. I have the option of placing the tank inside the shed which is always dark but also 10-15 degrees warmer then the outside air...

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    12.5% for almost a month huh? Hmmmm, when you test FC as it nears 3 to 4 weeks since the last tank fill-up, are you noticing FC levels are the same as week 1? Do you need to run the pump and any longer towards the end of the refill cycle to account for degraded bleach?

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    I was messing around with the excel last night and changed the bleach to 6%. Left that 6% there today when changing the pump to 50gpd so that's why my numbers were off today. Regardless, a 50gpd pump at 160$ new seems to be the best price I can find. If adding the bleach at this rate seems to be...

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    I understand that pump output is dictated by tube sizing and I found a good price for 50gpd pump for around 160$ new. All other sizes are well over 200$. 30$ + 50$ for shipping is not bad at all. Best price on a stenner 30 gallon tank with shipping I could find is 240$

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    Wow that excel sheet was perfect. Now I'm looking at either a 22 or 50 gpd pump with a 30 gallon tank. Either way, its difficult to find one that is actually in stock on some of these websites. The 45MFL5 needs 35 to 50 minutes to meet my FC demand. I found this one with the 45MFL5 but its...

    Which Stenner pump....10 or 22gpd?

    Biting the bullet and purchasing a 15 gallon stenner pump/tank. Last decision to make is GPD sizing which will be either 10 or 22. My pool is 22000 gallons with a CYA of 40 and I always try to keep my FC on the higher side near 7. I always use 10% bleach with almost a daily ritual of dumping...

    cant seperate union

    I'm away from the pump right now and haven't fully winterized it yet. Does the top pipe likely have some type of o-ring in there or are both services supposed to be smooth and just sit flush together? I know I have to get that glue off so I'm guessing some light sanding would be the best option?

    cant seperate union

    Yes I was able to remove the threaded circular section witha wrench. But, now that the fitting is unscrewed I can not seperate the 2 pipes. They are stuck together

    cant seperate union

    Hayward VS pump was installed at the beginning of the summer with some new plumbing. Im trying to seperate this union but it wont budge. I dont know what it looks like on the inside (meaning if it is some type of slip fit connection or mearly pressed together with a o-ring) but I cant seperate...

    First algae of the summer.....but summers over

    Before I even had an opportunity to run the OCL test, the robot cleaned the entire pool and all the green was gone. No traces of any green spots left and nothing has returned ?‍♂️

    pretty big tear in liner. quick help

    I was able to get a big patch on it but it's not sitting as flush as I would like. Is it better to apply an even larger patch over the patch I put? Or remove the old one and try again

    pretty big tear in liner. quick help

    our diving board broke last night and fell into the pool. We didnt notice the hole in the liner until this morning. Water is down about 5 inches right now over the course of 16 hours or so. The gash is roughly 6-8 inches wide. Is this repairable?

    Pleading for help after AA treatment

    I have been battling with iron stains in my pool since opening in mid April and have learned a vast amount of knowledge from this site. The one thing I could say for certain in regards to my situation and perhaps it's the same with yours is that when the pH reaches 7.6 I begin to see early signs...

    liquid chlorine pump

    After learning the ways of TFP this year, my chemistry is on point, water looks great and dumping bleach everyday is becoming annoying LOL. I've been reading threads on stenner pumps and I think the chlorine pump is the best option for me as opposed to a SWG. I noticed Hayward has there own...

    Cleaning the FAS-DPD scoop

    Yes I added algaecide. No heater. Roughly 3 weeks ago when I was starting the ascorbic acid treatment I added 16oz of kemtek 60% Yes I rinse the vials/tube several times after each use. I tried to clean with bleach but it didn't work. I didn't actually get in there with a cue tip but I try again.

    My ascorbic acid adventure

    Water test this morning after adding more sequestrant yesterday and ciruclating the water overnight; FC 0 PH 7.0 TA 120 CH 150 CYA 50 Added 30oz soda ash after this test and the ph is 7.2. I just read that borax is probably better for my situation since it doesnt raise TA as much as soda ash...
