    Temporary Pool Pump?

    So it is going to take 2-3 weeks to get my replacement parts for my pump.
    What can I do to rig up something temporary until then?
    Pool is starting to need cleaning.

    I have a sump pump, maybe somehow use that?

    It won't help you vacuum or filter, but a sump pump and a hose at the far end of the pool will help keep the chemicals mixed. So will brushing. If you hunt down a wall whale brush, you'll be amazed at how much water they can move. And how easy you can bend an aluminum pole with it set to max lift.

    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!
