    Pump broken - is using Aquabot enough?

    Hi, my pump is down which means my salt chlorination is down too. Repair is scheduled for mid next week.

    My question is do you think I need to do more then adding bleach as needed to keep chlorine at the right level and run my Aquabot turbo T for 7 hours a day to keep things under control until the system is back up and running?

    Of course I am skimming manually as well.

    Thanks for opinions.

    Just remember to dose like a manually chlorinated pool during this time, since you won't have the constant low chlorine production for several hours a day. FC/CYA Chart
