I wanted to start by voicing my appreciation to this forum and the community. I have been reading responses, and threads, and I look forward to reading more great ideas!
Question: Can I SLAM my pool without a functional filter or vacuum? If not, is it safe to bleach it until the pump comes next week? I currently have 2 sump pumps moving the water. 1 - 1/6 HP and 1 - 1/5HP.
Problem: When I opened the pool my ECOPump started and then ceased. I want to keep it stabilized while the new pump is shipping.
What I did on Saturday: 6 lbs of non-bleach sanitize (Namco brand I think) and 32oz of algaecide distributed around the pool in 23 x 4GAL buckets of water around the pool. This was recommended by the pool store. The water is pretty clear now and I removed most of the leaves/junk with the net.
- 18x33 AGP with a 22" sand filter connected to a single skimmer and eye traditionally connected to my 1HP/1.65HP ECOPump (should be back Monday).
- 2 x sump pumps with 5 foot hoses circulating the water (one surface level and one lower)
- Taylor FAS-DPD kit - 2006 I believe.
Thank you in advance!
