I went away for 4 days on a girl scout trip with my daughter. I didn't want hubby to have to mess with the pool while I was gone because he doesn't really use it care much for it. So I decided to put in a Chlorine pack into the Aqua Smart System for the 4 days I was gone. I'm back home and just looked out at the pool and noticed the water was to the bottom of the skimmer. I went down to find this.
It appears I when I put the filter on "closed" to put in the chlorine pack, I forgot to set the multi port back on filter. So it was in the closed position when I turned the pump back on a walked away. Didn't check it before I left the next morning early. So the pump was running with the port closed. Would the pressure then cause the line to burst? It looks like it swelled then burst. The pump wasn't running when I found this. I went and checked and it had kicked the GFI breaker off. I reset the breaker and turned the motor on for a couple seconds and it sounds like it would work but don't know if it will or what damage might have been done.
So my questions are, does anyone think the pump is ruined? Do you think the multi port would be damaged? Any other problems you think I might be facing? I have an hour drive to get what I need so want to make as few trips as possible.
