Ok folks, here is my situation,my pool pump motor just died on me....I've kept it open and was hoping to close it once temps really dropped and water temp stayed below 60deg. And here I am, been maintaining all along and now with no pump and I dont plan on rushing around to replace motor at this time of the season so I need to close it now....Have just a few questions below..
1. Is it ok to broadcast my polyquat 60 throughout the pool since no pump to circulate? Maybe premix it in a few 5 gal buckets, broadcast all over or concentrate most in the deep end , or doesnt matter ??
2.So long as I block off the skimmer wall with something and shopvac the water out of it to just get a rubber plug or gismo in is that OK ?? Most people around here do not drop the water level down nor blow the lines out, they say it dont get cold enough ?? Maybe just blow my suction line back to the disassemble pump pad now ??
3.I can blow the lines out later if I decided to and airlock my MD line, the main thing I need to do is get the polyquat in and get it covered right away correct ?
4.I can raise my FC level up by batch dosing it as well ...but do I need to mix it up a bit by a brushing of the walls maybe ??
Any help is MUCH appreciated .....
