    Advice while waiting for new pump

    My pump went out on me this morning and I won't be
    able to replace it until Friday (48 hours or so)
    My CYA is 80 and my FC is 14 (I was having an issue
    with yellow algae)
    Will I be ok until the new pump is delivered and installed?
    I have teens who are frequent swimmers and just wanted
    some advice.
    Thanks to all those who make this forum possible.
    Since I switched over to BBB I have had NO problems
    at all!!!

    I would pour some bleach in there and stir it up and let the kids swim to stir it even more. You should be fine for a couple of days that way.
