Last Thursday the motor to my pump finally died. I've ordered a replacement that should arrive in the next two days but I'm concerned if I can keep algae away until I can get the pump fixed. I was pleasantly surprised with my test results:
I do have a portable pump (1/4 HP) that is keeping some circulation in the pool and I've brushed the pool a couple of times. If I keep my chem levels correct and sweep the pool once the pump is fixed, there should be no need to SLAM the pool immediately, right?
