My pool pump blew out today after I had to reset a circuit breaker. A google search on maintaining a pool with a broken pump led me to several posts on the TFP forums and I gather it is just a matter of maintaining levels as best you can while waiting for repair and manually circulating the water.
However, I've got a few extra constraints:
1. I'm out of town most of next week, all of the following week and most of the week after.
2. I don't have any other pump to circulate the water.
3. I don't own any test strips.
My pool is about 15000 gallons and use(d) a SWG. I do have a tigershark pool vac but not sure how well it would help circulate.
I had my water tested this morning before the fiasco and levels are:
6 ppm free chlorine
100 ppm Total Alkalinity
285 ppm Calcium Harrdness
45 ppm Stabilizer
2600 ppm salt
No CYA reading.
Any suggestions on how to proceed?
