We have a pentar mdle 300 chlorine feeder and can not regulate. Have changed the valve and check valve and it still feeds to much chlorine even turned off. What is the best chlorine feeder for pool & spa. We are a Home Owner Association.

Welcome to TFP.

The best chlorine feeder is a peristaltic pump or a swcg.

Tell us about your pool and spa and how it's ran and we can make more recommendations.

A chlorine feeder that uses solid chlorine puck or tabs is going to add CYA to your pool in addition to the chlorine. CYA is a stabilizer that protects the chlorine in the solid tablet/powder form and it protects your chlorine in the pool from sunlight. It is a double edged sword, not enough and your chlorine burns off in the sun... to much your chlorine become less effective against algae and other organic stuff.

Have you read the "Pool School"? The link is in the upper right corner of this page.

If you are an HOA, does this mean it's a public or a pool shared with multiple families? If so, you may have legal requirements to meet.
