    SWG pump broke, now what

    My SWG pump broke and I am waiting on replacement. As slow as Intex is I am planning on it taking a month. Can I use bleach in the mean time. And when my new SWG pump arrives since there is salt in the pool already can I just hook up the new SWG pump and continue?

    Yes, use Pool Calculator to tell you how much bleach. Do not forget to change chlorination method at the bottom of the worksheet. When your new SWG arrives, check salt levels and fire it up.
