    I am looking for some solenoids to dose my kalkwater.
    Where do I buy them?
    How do I get them to kick on for say 3 minutes every hour?

    bill ordered them from a place I'll have to look and see if I still have the web addy, as for controlling them I'd say your looking at buying a controller.....I'm not sure if you could buy a timer with that many set options

    Here is my setup

    Here are the ones I use

    McMaster part number 7877K6 Price $26.02 each

    You will also need the plastic push-connect connectors (2 for each selenoid)
    McMaster part number 9087K11 Price $1.40 each

    Just go to McMaster website and do a search for those part numbers and you will find them....

    Hope that helps....Good lucK

    You can also get the floats you need with splashguard from Mcmaster Carr. They also have some programable timers that will run them for three minutes then turn off.
    I did my best to copy einsteins system after countless questions on my part.
