    Wanting to add a peristaltic pump for acid

    I am looking to install an acid pump to my pool and have been looking at the Rola-Chem RC25/53SC with the Rola-Chem 15 gal tank. Does anyone know of any issues with this unit? Is it reliable?

    While Stenner is considered to eb the glod standard I haven't heard of any recurring issues with Rola-Chem peristaltics. Peristaltics are head and shoulders above diaphragm pumps. Do due didigence and make sure the pump tube is compatible with HCL acid.
