    Stenner Pump Chlorine DIY Question

    I just finished wiring up my Stenner pump. Like most guys, I read the directions after I mounted the pump to my brick wall. I mounted the pump for convenience, and it turns out it is slightly below the top of the tank (which most likely won't be filled). With the back flow preventer in the pump, is this an issue? I can fairly easily move it's location. I'll try to add some pics once I can.

    It should work fine. I have mine mounted about 2 feet above the top of a 55gal drum that I keep my chlorine in, and it works like a charm.

    As Ron said, it won't be a problem. The only reason to mount it above the vessel is to provide a drain from the pump head back into the drum in case of a pump tube rupture. With bleach, it isn't much of a concern if you spill a little. I doubt most pool owners even bother with the pump head drain.

    I mounted mine to brick and just used a concrete drill bit and a couple of blue Tapcon screws. Took two minutes.

    I used Red Head sleeve anchors and a 1/4" masonry bit.

    The salt was destroying our stone decking and rusting everything in sight. I loved the convenience and water feel but all the stone pitting was too much to handle.

    I used Tapcon's to mount my Stenner also. They work great in the mortar joints.

    Not necessarily a problem you will deal with in NJ. The issues with natural stone seem to be concentrated in the southwest US, mainly Texas
