    Adding bleach at night..do I need to run the filter?

    I run the filter daily from 8am to 8pm. I added bleach to my pool tonight for the first time ever! Do I need to run the filter during to circulate the bleach? I've read that it is better to add bleach at night so that it can work at full strength throughout the night. I am wondering if I need to adjust my filter schedule. Thank you!

    Yes. Half an hour should be plenty. Brushing will speed it up.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
