Pool Mechanical Feeders Work Under Pressure!

Your mechanical feeders are design according to the type of pool chemicals that they are set up to deliver. In the swimming pool and spa industry, many different types of chemicals are used - some of these pool sanitizers are available in a gas, a liquid or as a solid.

For each of these chemical categories, there is a feeder system that is designed to deliver them automatically to the water of your swimming pool.

Energy sources used to activate a mechanical feed system

These chemical feeders require some form of energy source in order to function correctly. The energy source to activate certain chemical feeder/s can electrical which operates:

  • Motor driven pump.
  • A piston type pump.
  • A diaphragm type pump.

Another source of energy that may be utilized to activate your feeder system, is the flow of your filtration or circulation system. This is usually the water flow from your chlorinator or brominator feeder. Depending on which one you use as your pool sanitation device. Activation of mechanical feeders can also come from the use of a hydraulic system.

This could be from a venturi system which creates energy through suction. This type of system is usually set up on an ozone delivery system. The principle here is that...the ozone system will draw the chemical into your pool or spa water through the suction that is created by the venturi system.

Another way that you can achieve activation of your mechanical feeders is by using a gas. This gas is under pressure and condensed into its liquid form. Using a mechanical feeder gives you the option of adjusting the amount of pool chemical that it will add to your swimming pool or spa.

Properly setting up mechanical feeders

Lets face it - Besides the dangers of dealing directly with some swimming pool and spa chemicals, no one like to physically handle these products. Therefore having the option of adding these pool chemicals automatically, is always welcome. However when you decide to go with an automatic mechanical chemical feeder, you don't want one that you have to work manually. Right?

In this world of automatic digital technology, we want everything easy and set up correctly. Hence we want the right automatic equipment for the job. Some feeders are designed to be controlled by electrical timers. These ones are set up to work semi-automatically. However there are some feeders that are designed to be fully controlled automatically.

The controllers that are normally used for this task, can be set to open or close a valve/s, whenever your levels drop below or rise above your original setting.

These controllers can also be set up where they would actually monitor the entire water chemistry of your swimming pool or spa.

You can even use them to control your pool or spa lighting as well.

These are the very complex type of controllers. However you can get some that are less complex.

Trust me when I say - they can make your job of operating a properly sanitized pool/spa very easy. With this type of set up, sanitizing or dosing your water facility is fully automatic. Some erosion feeders usually have some way for you to adjust or regulate the flow of water as well.

This procedure will manually control the amount of chemical being added to your pool water. Treating your swimming pool or spa can be a difficult task when done manually; however, we want our task to be safe and easy. We can only achieve this if we use a fully automated system that will successfully operate any and all of our mechanical feeders.
