    Pump Died, 3 days for replacement

    My pump died last night (Monday) & I ordered a replacement motor that is supposed to arrive Wednesday. Worst case scenario is that I will not get the motor replaced until Thursday evening. Are there any precautions I need to take during the 2-3 days without filtration or circulation. My water has been in perfect balance needing 18 oz of bleach per day. If I continue to add bleach at that rate & brush a little to stir things up I think I should be fine; however, I would like some advice.

    Thanks in advance for the help

    Sounds like a plan. Except brush a lot, so you really get the bleach to all corners of the pool.

    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!
