This is the definition of "extenuating circumstances".
My pump blew up last night, and I'm 4,000 miles away in England. It is very warm in Indianapolis and there must be a run on pool emergencies, because the soonest anyone can get out is Saturday to replace the pump. Obviously, I'd gladly go grab one and install it myself if I were there, but I'm not.
Is there any solid, easy-to-understand-by-a-novice method to add liquid chlorine in the interim to keep the pool clear, or (I know I'm pushing it) even swimmable?
I hesitate to think about pouring and stirring, but would that work? Could I use my pool cover pump (Rule 1800) to assist in any way? Or am I doomed to have to fight a mess in a few days when I get home?
