    Anybody cleaned the dolphins cord

    I have this same issue. Has anyone had any luck getting the cord replaced under warranty? I haven't called yet, but was planning on doing so next week.

    Outdoor Pavilion Build

    Nice. Is that a single board across the front? looks like 2 boards but can't tell what is holding then together. I'm looking to do something similarly sized but with a solid walk on the backside to block the brutal afternoon (west) sun. Looks like it is all PT lumber?

    My Stenner install complete!

    RE heat. I (mostly) buried my bucket. It is just a 5 gallons though. Burying it works well, I believe I measured the water temp in the buried bucket in the 70s when I was testing. For comparison my pool heats to almost 90 naturally.

    Walmart bleach has changed

    went to walmart in my area today. not only did it change but is 2x more per oz (by concentration) then it was last year. No pool essentials available. Does anyone have any suggestions for where to get reasonably priced bleach in greenville, sc? Our HD and Lowe's don't normally have anything...

    agreed. I actually made a chart to put out at the pump that gave me the FC for different run times for different chlorine %.

    2019 Bleach Prices

    HD has the 10% for 8.98 for 3 gallons if you buy 4 packs. If you have grocery store rewards on your credit card then pick up a gift card (cant normally buy walmart cards). I get 6% at grocery store so I bought 5 packs... so after tax that works out to about 44.74 for 15 gallons after tax. A...

    Stenner Dosing Issue

    I ran some tests this past weekend and I think it is a tube sizing issue. Set at 10gpd it pumped 32oz in about 7-8 mins [~50gpd] The other tests weren't as exact as the container was empty when I checked it, but I know this: 6 gpd pumped 64 oz in less than 30 mins 2.5 gpd pumped 64 oz in less...

    Stenner Dosing Issue

    I wish it were that. Definitely was set to 2.2-2.5 ish. Yesterday it was set to 2.5 gpd and it pumped about 5 quarts out the bucket in 3 hrs and 45 mins (12:15 PM to 4 PM) It was not running when I came home and checked it around 7 PM. I just changed the start time to 2:45 PM to prepare for...

    Stenner Dosing Issue

    I think I'll just shorten run time as a temp solution while I am away this weekend. When I have more time I'll try to run some more tests on the pump and timer.

    Stenner Dosing Issue

    Model 45MJL5A1STA Age Unknown It has the dial and is set to roughly 2.5 right now. Yes it definitely pauses and makes the clicking sound when set to anything other than 10.

    Stenner Dosing Issue

    Ok, so at the start of pool season (about 6 weeks ago here), I installed my stenner pump to auto dose the chlorine. It is a simple install, it pulls the chlorine out of a 5 gallon bucket buried about 3/4 of the way in the ground. It injects to the return at a level slightly below where the...

    Liquid chlorine pump.

    I installed the 45 pump recently and I run mine about 4 hours a day at 2gpd right now. That keeps the chlorine level very consistent throughout the day. As the days get longer I plan to run the pump longer and will also probably need to increase the GPD as the temp rises. My reservoir is also...

    Pool Math........The App

    is there any plan for supporting logging additions for chemical injection? I'd like to log that I ran the stenner for 3 hours at 3.5 GPD with 6% chlorine. I assume people are adding these as notes today? I'm also excited for the possibility of Google assistant integration as I was thinking...

    help skimmer sock sucked into plumbing

    I'm not proud of this but tonight I was trying to figure out why I had air in my lines and when I pulled the basket out to check for suction the skimmer sock got sucked down the line. I ran over and turned the pump off. What do I do? waste out and hope for the best? will it cause issues or...
