    electrical issues

    My filter is not running - due to my electrician being unavailable. It is a newly started 33' above ground 54" Sentinelle. What emergency plan should I put in place to keep this thing from turning into green jello before I can get the pump running. Thanks for the advice in advance - this site looks awesome!

    Bleach and a brush to mix it.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Welcome to TFP!

    That depends on how long you will need to go before you have electricity and how athletic you are feeling

    You can add chlorine by pouring 2 ppm of bleach into the pool while walking around the edge of the pool, and then brushing the entire pool to mix the chlorine into the water. This is best done in the evenings, so the chlorine can work overnight without being consumed by sunlight.

    That takes some doing, so if it is going to be a while and/or you are not feeling at all athletic, you might need to consider letting things go until you have the pump working.

    You guys are unbelievable - I have never seen responses so fast - thank you for your help.

    It could be Monday before we get to electricity, so I will be getting a work out.
