In late 1990 I installed a Sears Bleach injector for the smell. It worked great. Over the years I bought one more new Sears injector for the well. Then three years ago lightning destroyed the submersible pump.
After the well service people pulled the pump, from about 450 Ft. he recommended that we install a 1 HP Constant Pressure pump and lower the pump to 750 Ft. due to the continuing drought in our area. I agreed and the well was repaired.
About 3 months later the water started to smell again as it did in 1990 and I contacted the well service rep and asked him to check the well system. He then told me that Injector was not compatible with the Constant Pressure pump.
I was told I would have to find some other way to control the smell. The Injector could no longer be connected to start and stop with pump operation. I added a timer to the Injector and that worked just fine until last month when the Injector failed due to old age, I assume.
I contacted Sears and they no longer offer the Injector. Can you suggest a replacement system? The current pump control box does not offer 120V service at the pressure switch. Would adding a flow switch be necessary? Water test show no problems, except hardness.
Your help will be appreciated.
Thanks for emailing. For a constant pressure system, a proportional feed chlorinator is needed, a flow switch would not work. With a flow switch, the chlorinator would turn on even if there were very little flow and so the chlorine dosage would not be correct.

The PCM control box plugs into a 120v wall outlet.
