I have a Stenner pump installed on my pool for liquid chlorine. It is set up to run 6 minutes every two hours 5 times a day starting at 10am. It seems to work well at keeping my chlorine levels on target but I have had to adjust the run times on occasion. I wonder if I am losing chlorine to the sun by having it run during the day. Would it be better to run it for 30 minutes in the morning or evening when the sun is not directly overhead? Does it matter?

The first thing you need to know is how much chlorine is dispensed in one minute and what %. Pool typically lose 3-4ppm daily. 30 minutes of additions seams high to me but maybe you are using 6% or diluted.

Thanks for the reply. Stenner pumps come with different tubes that control flow rate. The specs on mine states 10 gallons per day (.89 ounces per minute) so for a 30 minute run time I am adding about 27 ounces of 12% chlorine per day.
