Well, she makes it look pretty easy: https://youtu.be/P1UMoZHwWjk

Is it worth it? My opinion is no, I think the money is better spent on a Stenner setup. I prefer to spend less time dialing the liquidator in, adjusting and making sure nothing gets clogged. Every situation is different! Good luck with your decision.

There are a few threads about the Stenner Econ model that have a timer built in for $215. Then you just need a container for bleach and a place to plug it in.

there doesn't seem to be much feedback yet for the Econ model, so you could always go with one of the tried and true models.

Edit:
This is the model I purchased, but you should determine how much chlorine you need and how long you want to run it. I like it because at about 2oz/min it is very simple to calculate dosage and it is relatively quick.

You install it yourself?

Yes

Well I am starting on my fifth season with my Liquidator and am very please with it. I have never experience any clogging. As for dialing it in, the best approach is to manually bring you FC to your desired level, maybe a little on the high end of the range, then set the control valve to a low flow level. Monitor FC level once a day after the pump has run and adjusted the flow accordingly. In a couple a days, you will have it dial in. I also found that using a pinch valve allows for finer adjustments.

Do you have to readjust it each year?

I have a stenner setup and it is great. Highly recommend the fixed speed pump with a digital timer to control when it turns on and off. Fill the tank, set the daily run times and check back in a month to fill the tank again. Can't beat it.

That sounds awesome, how much you spend getting it setup?

I got the 220V pump and 15 gal tank for about $500 and had the timer and dual 220V outlet and mounting post installed by an electrician. The timer was about $120 and controls both the stenner and the main pump. Think it was all less than $800 installed, so it should be cheaper if you can do it yourself. Electricians are not cheap in the metro NY area.

Do you have part numbers for what you installed? I have a 220V line w/ timer already installed since previous owners used to have some sort of cleaning system (I now use a Dolphin and it wasn't still hooked up, so it's just a blocked off jet now) but it has a Polaris motor just sitting connected to it. I could re-use that just need to have it wired in.

This is the product page:
Stenner 45MPHP10 Single Head Fixed Output High Pressure Pump | 45MPHP10

You can select the tank size, tubing and color. I got the 220V pump, the black 1/4" tubing and the grey 15 gallon tank.

The timer I got is this one with steel enclosure
https://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-ET1125C-24-Hour-Electronic-120-277/dp/B002TC4A08

That's an expensive stenner, but that electric timer is nice, I might have our electrician switch our manual one to that electric one.
