Within the space of two weeks, our automatic pool cleaner (Aquabot) died, we bought a new one, our pump motor died, ordered a new motor, and then the NEW automatic pool cleaner died (it's faulty and we are in the process of returning it). In the meantime, my husband is having trouble getting a new gasket, which is the last key to getting the pool motor installed. Old gasket was deteriorated.
I need someone to help answer this debate on how best to keep this pool clean until we can get the new motor installed...
The pool is (obviously) growing some mustard algae. I say we need to continually shock and just let the dead **** sit on the bottom. My husband wants to just let things go until we get the pump motor installed.
What would you guys do?
