    Pool filled working on pump ...

    We filled our new 16' X 4' Intex Ultra Frame pool, about 15 hours ago (yesterday evening), the new Hayward pump and filtration system is giving us problems. The water was circulated with no chemicals for 3 hours. We shut it off and retired for the night. The filter needs to be drained and the connections need to be wrapped again in plumber's tape and a new electrical outlet needs to be installed. We have a SWG, but no salt has been added. The day has been overcast. Do we need to add chlorine or algicide while my husband is working on the plumbing and electrical connections? The water can not be circulated. Thanks.

    If you can get the pump running today then wait till the pump is working.

    If you can't get the pump running before tomorrow, add some chlorine tonight after the sun if off the pool and then brush the entire pool to help mix it in.
