    pool pump died... Advice needed.

    My pool pump died on friday. It's covered by the home warranty so I'm not overly concerned but, as of today, it's going to take them a couple days to get the necessary parts to fix it. So how do I keep the pool from turning green? Over the weekend I add bleach after the sunset, ran laps around the pool with the net in a vain attempt to circulate 26000 gallons of water... Any advice would be nice.

    Continue to add bleach around the pool and then brush the pool to mix it in. The wall whale brush moves a lot of water around.

    If you have a sump pump put it in the shallow end and run the garden hose to the deep end, that should help to keep things moving. Depending on what it was used for before you might want to run some clean water through it first.
