    filling my pool ... backswimmers and leak

    Hi guys ...

    I am filling my pool ... started about 7pm last night and it is a little over half way done now 830a

    There are about 100 back swimmers in there already. Water level is not up to the point where I can start the pump yet.

    I did a quick cl and ph test ...

    CL .04
    PH 7.2

    can I add bleach or something now to get rid of the back swimmers?

    I want to try to find my leak but am afraid to go in there with them in there.

    THE FUN HAS BEGUN

    thanks in advance

    The filling water should provide enough circulation to slowly add some bleach to get rid of the bugs. I'd dribble it around the entire pool (watch for splashing, it'll wreck your cloths )

    CONGRATULATIONS !! ON GETTING THE POOL UP AND FILLING!!

    Thanks for the support ... I'll go "carefully" add a little bleach to the pool now.
