My water level finally got to the proper level last night, CYA put in yesterday afternoon, bleach last night and then the pump died. I was running a 100ft uf 12-2 to a gfi that the pump was plugged into, 20 amp breaker. Pump got extremely hot and shut off. After cool down I restarted the pump and it ran for a couple seconds and shut off, with a wisp of smoke from the pump. It is a 12 amp 115 volt pump. Not sure if it could have been caused by voltage drop as the pump manual says to use 10 gauge wire for runs 50 - 100 ft to prevent voltage drop from damaging the pump. The pool store says the will replace but will take untill tuesday. So my second question is can I still add my daily bleach without the pump running, and is it ok for the CYA to still be dissolving without any circulation?
I also need to add Borax and Baking Soda.
How bad of a situation am I in?
Thanks in advance
