So it's been 3+ weeks without filtration in the pool. Tornado hit on the 26th and main pool pump has been without power since then. The local Pentair authorized repaid place is supposed to come by today/tomorrow. Obviously they're not making it today, so certainly hoping they do tomorrow.
Pool is clear, no visible algae, chemicals in balance, but it certainly doesn't have sparklyitis. "scum" lines are beginning to appear on the tile at the water surface line. Pool has never gone lower than 4 on FC during this time, so it should be ok. (I think?)
On an interesting note, it's a testament to aeration and the effect on pH rise, as I've not had to put in muriatic acid since before we left and the pH is steady at 7.4 and TA at 60.
Still using a puck floater to keep it chlorinated. Can't wait to get my pump back on and filter running and get my water back to what I like it to be / look and feel like.
I just really want my pool back to normal....<lament><vent><sigh>
Still...there are people dealing with loss of home, so in the grand scheme of things, it could be FAR worse.
