[FONT=&quot][FONT=&quot]Do I need to reroute my equipment so the pool water circulates and doesn’t turn green while the concrete cures? [/FONT][/FONT]

Sorry if this is the wrong section of the forum to post my question.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

People have survived worse here. Add chlorine manually and mix it up by brushing it a lot. A wall whale brush is ideal for this. You won;t be filtering out any dust,, so it may not look great, but it'll keep it from getting algae.

What Richard said. I went for a week in the AZ summer without a functioning pump. Just kept the chlorine levels in range and no algae, just dust/debris to clean up.
