    Running Filter After Chemicals - is it necessary?

    Just wondering if it is best (or necessary) to run the filter for a few hours after putting in chemicals at the end of the day? Is it the end of the world if you are not able?

    It is best to run the pump 30 min before testing, then run the pump an hour after dosing.......Thanks for the reminder, I need to add a bit of FC to my pool!

    I run at least an hour after additions to mix it.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
