    Dead Pump: Can I use pool?

    My pump has died. New parts won't be here until next week. Can I use the pool untill then? Chemistry is OK as of now.

    Yeah you can use it. In fact, add the bleach in there and stir it around then get in and swim to stir it up good. You need to keep adding bleach and manually stirring it each day till your pump gets fixed.

    Can you post a set of test results for us?

    Sounds like a job for.... the Wall Whale brush.

    Really, that fin on the brush will move water like you wouldn't believe. Brush, brush, here and a brush, brush there and the chemicals are all mixed.
