I've been nursing an old 1.5 HP Hayward pump along for the 18 months I've been in this house. I've already replaced the capacitor once and anticipating the pump's ultimate demise, I bought a new Intelliflo VS still in the box. I live in CA, so hopefully the economics work out.
At any rate, I have been a good BBB/TFP follower and prior to my pump dying today, my water chemistry was perfect.
I am in the process of re-doing (in my head for the moment) my equipment pad to accommodate a new gas heater and stenner pump/tank combo. Still in the process of getting all the equipment in and it will likely be 2+ weeks before I can get it all installed. So,
Should I try and hook up the Intelliflo temporarily for the sake of maintaining a well-balanced pool or is it okay to let the water stagnate a couple of weeks while I get everything in order?
