    New pool, no chemicals or circulation yet?

    So we just got our pool filled up. Click this link for pics http://www.troublefreepool.com/filli...ly-t21016.html. The pool builder said they will be here Saturday afternoon to do the mechanical & chemical startup. That means that our water will sit untreated and uncirculated for close to 36 hours. Should I be worried about this?
    Thanks

    No harm in putting in some bleach now. Just walk around the edge and pour in, it will disperse itself.

    36 hours shouldn't be a problem, but it is getting towards the limit. Adding 2 ppm of chlorine in the evening can help insure that things go well. It is best to brush the entire pool right after adding chlorine as a way to create a little circulation and help mix it in.
