What is included?
- J-PRO-22 Home Well Water Chlorinator Pump with 15 or 35 gallon heavy-duty polyethylene solution tank
- Tubing and fittings to connect pump to injection check valve and solution tank
- 1 Injection Check valve 1/2" male pipe thread
- Suction tubing and foot valve to connect solution tank to pump
- Degassing / Priming valve to make it easy to prime pump
- Easy to read Manual
What size solution tank should I order?
- We recommend the 15 gallon tank.
- There is usually no home well water application where the 35 gallon tank is needed.
- Most of our customers use 2 - 5 gallons chlorine solution per month.
- There is no advantage to using a larger solution tank in most cases because the chlorine can go bad.
- Mix up enough fresh chlorine solution to last for 3 months as chlorine can lose its strength over time.
What type of bleach should I use?
- We recommend using NSF Certified Chlorine Powder which has no additives or contaminants
- Do not use household laundry bleach, as it contains additives
- You can use liquid bleach as long as it is free of additives
- To use just add 1 oz of powder to 1 gallon of soft or purified water to make up your solution
- 1 5-lb jug is more than enough chlorine for most residential well applications for 8 to 12 months
- Stores for up to 8 to 12 months in cool dark dry location.
Should I use a contact retention tank?
- In most cases it is works best to use a contact tank. Contact Retention Tanks are a great way to allow sufficient contact time after your system has injected chlorine or peroxide.
- A contact tank provides contact time to kill bacteria, oxidize iron, odors etc.
- Provides settling of sand and grit and makes it easy to drain down and flush out heavy particles
- Use less chlorine
- Eliminates heavy chlorine tastes and odors by allowing chlorine to react with iron, odor or bacteria in water
- See our line of contact tanks here. We recommend the 1054 size OR the 1354 size for most homes.
Will I smell or taste the chlorine? What about my septic tank?
- You can easily adjust the chlorine residual in the water so it is similar to city water and contains very low levels, less than 1.0 PPM
- For best results however we recommend a carbon whole house filter.
- As an option you can use a low cost refillable carbon cartridge, or self-cleaning backwash carbon filter.
- The carbon whole house filters remove any trace of chlorine so no chlorine enters your household water or septic tank.
- A contact retention tank also reduces the amount of chlorine after injection as it gives a few minutes for the chlorine to do its job and dissipate.
What is the warranty? How long do these systems last?
- The system includes a one year manufacturer warranty.
- You can usually expect 5 to 6 years life however all components are serviceable and replaceable.
- Use purified or soft water to make up your chlorine solution and follow recommended routine maintenance for best results.
Can I install this myself? Can I have my plumber or handyman install it?
- Yes, you can install it yourself, however a local plumber or handyman can also install it for you. In addition to the easy to read manual, we also have youtube videos that walk you through the installation.
- To make it easier for a plumber or handyman to install we recommend the optional Schedule 80 PVC Injection Tee (see drop down menu) and if you want to avoid having to do any wiring we recommend the optional pre-wired flow switch. The chlorinator typically takes about 2 - 3 hours to install.
1 Year Warranty from date of delivery.
If your pump fails under warranty, please call or email our office to obtain a Returns Good Authorization Number before sending us back the pump for repair or replacement under the warranty. No returns can be accepted without an RGA number.
The Warranty covers repair and/or replacement of the metering pump but not shipping costs.
While defects are rare, we do our best to respond to warranty returns fast as we can. Please allow 3 to 5 business days after pump has been returned for your pump to be repaired or a new one supplied under the warranty agreement.
If the water supply and its continuous chlorination are critical, a back-up chlorinator pump should be on hand. Shipping charges are not covered under warranty.. Any expedited shipping (overnight, 2-day, etc.) is the customerís responsibility.
Conditions Not Covered by the Warranty:
Power surges or outages that cause pump failure are not covered under warranty.
Surge protection is strongly recommended. If a pump is returned for warranty replacement and the cause of failure is determined to be from a voltage spike, the pump does not qualify for replacement. This is the leading cause of failure. Pump failure during, or because of, power failure is not covered under warranty.
This pump is intended for indoor use only. The pump must never be exposed to freezing temperatures, direct sunlight, or rain. If the cause of failure is determined to be from exposure to any of these environments, the pump does not qualify for replacement and will not be covered under warranty.
3 Options to Install Your Chlorinator To Turn On Automatically
Detailed printed installation instructions are included with each order.
Option 1: WIRE TO WELL PUMP PRESSURE SWITCH
Wire to your well's pressure switch. This is the lowest cost method. Simply install a dedicated wall outler, that is wired in to the existing pressure switch and powered up whenever the well pump turns on (and off)
Option 2: PRE-WIRED FLOW SWITCH
Install a flow switch. This makes it fast and easy. No electrical wiring to do and any plumber, or person familiar with basic plumbing can install the chlorinator. No electrician required or electrical wiring to do.
Simply install the pre-wired flow switch. Plug the flow switch into a standard 120v wall outlet. Then, plug the chlorinator pump into the electrical outlet on the flow switch. Whenever there is flow, the metering pump will then turn on.
Option 3: PROPORTIONAL-FEED FLOW METER TYPE
Use a proportional-fee type of installation. This is also very easy to set up and requires no electrical wiring or electrician to install the system. A flow meter is installed which tursn on and off the chlorinator pump based on the flow of water.
As soon as there is flow of water through the meter, the chlorinator pump will pump faster or slower based on the amount of water flowing through the flow meter
Simply install the flow meter and connect the cable to the chlorinator pump. Plug the chlorinator pump into a standard 120V wall outlet. When the water flows, the pump will pump more or less chlorine based on how fast the water is flowing.
NOTE: Unlike Option 1 and Option 2, there is no need ot install the injection check valve before your pressure tank. With the proportional-feed type of installation, the injection check valve can be installed AFTER the pressure if desired.
