I just replaced my vinyl liner. When doing the work we found some problems/cracks in my fibreglass steps. The liner has been put in, and water filled up to acceptable level (~60% full) to hold it in place, but still below the steps so we could work on them. I had a fibreglass guy come in to fix the step this weekend. He told me I cannot submerse the steps for 7 days to let his work cure.
So my question is how to keep the existing water clear. My pool is 36' X 18'. Its half filled right now, with no chemicals at all (filled it yesterday). I will not be able to fill it up, or run the pump or filter or any equipment for 1 week because the water is 2 feet below the skimmer. This week the temperatures here will range from around 50 degrees overnight to 75-80 during the days.
What should I do to keep the water from going bad for the next 7 days until I can fill it the last ~40% and start up the filter/pump.
