PLACING SYSTEM ON-STREAM
Once the internal piping and wiring has been connected and the unit is in the build-up period, consideration can be
given to connecting the system to the various points to be chlorinated.
Make sure that arrangements have been made to secure the proper piping and plumbing fittings beforehand. NO
METAL FITTINGS of any kind should be used in the chlorine feed piping. Use only Schedule 80 P.V.C. or polyethylene
semi-rigid tubing. As a general rule 1/2" PVC or 3/8" polyethylene tubing is satisfactory for most installations. Schedule
40 PVC, although chemically suitable for the job, is not rugged enough and should be avoided unless no other type is
readily available. An output manifold should be constructed from schedule 80 P.V.C. fittings and attached to the valve
which is part of the Chlorine output assembly supplied with the unit. The manifold should then be installed in the
Chlorine output fitting which is located approximately one third up from the bottom of the holding tank. Under no
circumstances should any other fitting be used for Hypochlorite withdrawal. (THIS ESPECIALLY APPLIES TO THE
DRAIN FITTING WHICH IS LOCATED AT THE TANK BOTTOM.)
All chlorine withdrawal from the systems should be taken from the chlorine output fitting except when injectors are being
used. When this is the case, the injector suction tubing should be inserted through holes in the side of the tank using the
schedule 80 P.V.C. insertion tubes supplied..
