    Pool drained 1/4th by mistake due to PVC pipe union came off

    The pool PVC pipe union came off, I don't know how and when the motor started, the pool water was drained by 1/4th, now I am refilling it, once it's done, what do I need to do? Do I need to add any stabilizer? or anything else? The chlorine tabs are already there... Please help.... Thanks a lot.

    What test kit are you using, and what were your readings (most recent test results) prior to the inadvertent loss of water?
    18' x 48" ring top pool (Summer Escapes); 5500 gallons; set up June - October, stored during winter; Intex 2500 gph pump (B size cartridge filter) Hayward 21" sand filter + 1.5 hp single speed Powerflo Matrix pump (upgrade October 2016) *** K-2006 test kit, refills from tftestkits

    Fill it. Circulate for 30-60 minutes. Run a full set of tests to find out what needs to be adjusted.

    No way we can offer advice without test results.

    The TFPC method is about understanding your pool’s chemistry and through accurate testing, adding only what the pool NEEDS.

    Guys,
    My pool was accidentally drained by 1/4th of water yesterday night, I refilled it again, Do i need to add some stabilizer now? OR the regular chlorine tablets are fine? Plz help
