    Any problem swimming in pool without pump operating

    I'm wondering if there is any issue with swimming in pool without the filter and pump running? I am installing a solar heater and got the piping all cut etc and changed my mind on the check valve. I won't be able to get the new check valve until Monday. The pool is currently clear and chlorine levels are where they are supposed to be. If kids are swimming this weekend, is that okay? My thinking is it should be okay but I want to be sure.

    Thanks,

    Ken

    It's ok! I swim in mine with and without the filter on.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    They'll mix the water better than the filter will.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
