That's polypro fittings with Fluorofilm (teflon) diaphragm. Technically it will handle bleach, but diaphragm pumps tend to have a problem because bleach outgasses in some installations.

Since you have it, I'd definitely give it a try, and it may work fine.

Thanks for the response. The outgassing issue is what I was worried about but this pump have a multi port function in which one of the port auto relief the gas back into the tank. I am only worried because majority seem to use the stenner ones and from what I have seen they are better at pump liquid chlorine.

I've dealt with ton's of LMI pumps and they're great pumps. The outgassing issue is not just particular to LMI pumps, it's an issue with diaphragm pumps in general. They added the ball float to combat that issue and it does a pretty fair job of it.

As I said, If I had one I wouldn't hesitate to use it.

I would definitely recommend the Stenner. Granted that's a personal preference from many years of using metering pumps of different mfg. in industrial applications. The Stenner pumps are more economical and easier to repair/maintain than most any other I've encountered. Also, if you want to change a Stenner from one capacity to another all you do is change the pump tube to a different number. It's even easy to change a Stenner adjustable rate pump to a fixed rate pump and vise versa.

To say I'm a fan of Stenner is an understatement.
