    chlorine injection system

    I recently purchased a home that has a chlorine injection system. It was banked owned so I was given no information on how it works. I have always had city water so having a well is new to me. Does anyone know what type of chlorine is needed for this system? I found something on-line that mentioned using regulat household bleach? Is that acceptable? The system is a Uni-Dose by LMI, model U041-281. I have tried the local DIY stores, but all they seem to know about are water softeners, and I do know that's not what I need!

    Chlorinators do use household bleach. Not the scented stuff though.

    I personally dislike chlorine and unless you have a bacterial problem, I highly recommend re-assessing your water and see what problems you really do have.

    There are far too many filtration companies recommending chlorination when it is not needed or where something else could have done the same thing with a lot less damage to your plumbing system.

    Where are you in Florida?

    In that case, you might have some pretty horrendous sulphur gas in your water. That might be the reason for the chlorine. We get rid of the sulphur with an air pump instead of using chlorine.

    We are just north of you in Riverview at I-75's exit 250.

    There was a very bad sulpher odor before we added the chlorine (bleach). Once the chlorine is added it then goes through a carbon filter. Now we don't smell chlorine or sulpher.
    How's the air pump work?

    It works in conjunction with a galvanized tank. It does the same thing the chlorine does only with no chemicals. Chlorine eats everything eventually, so we prefer to use air. There is no mixing, no testing and no muss or fuss.

    This is a bad drawing of the system, but you can get an idea of how it looks: http://secure.mycart.net/catalogs/ca...prodid=4546067
