I'd like to understand what I would need to do to maintain my pool in the event of a prolonged power outage.
I chlorinate with bleach and a 15 gal peristaltic pump. I should have enough bleach on hand to manually dose the pool for an extended period. I usually have 3 bottles on hand but I suppose I should have more.
Since the pump and DE filter wouldn't be on and I assume there is no manual equivalent, what are the resulting issues and possible resolutions.
My phosphates are high but I've never worried about it because I've never let my FC get low enough to start a bloom. But should I reduce my phosphates just in case?
I would likely also have a water supply issue in such a scenario. Is pool water safe to drink, either by itself or run through a hiker's water filter?
What other issues would there be? How would those issues be resolved?
