    Installing slide - How to keep water clear?

    We are finally getting ready to install the TurboTwister slide that has been sitting, assembled, beside our pool for months. The plumbing is in place with a capped pipe exiting the concrete pool deck where the slide is to be placed. This pipe is about 20' or less from the equipment where the line is controlled with an actuator.

    My question is how to do the installation to minimize old standing water from inside the pipe from getting in the pool and messing up my chemistry. Or, if that is not possible, how to minimize negative effects to my chemistry if this water does get in the pool. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm sure that little bit of water would be no harm but if you must, turn valve off, cut off cap, temporarily slip on elbow to direct water away from pool, turn valve on and let it run until old water is out. Then turn valve off and proceed with installation.

    Thank you for the replies. I'll take a picture if I get a moment, but the recommendation above seems like just what I was looking for. Thanks!
