Are you able to identify the parts with the yellow handles. If I turn the water off here but keep running the pump will this be bad?

This is a brand new pool, they set the pump to run 24hrs a day while they cycle out the acid wash on the plaster. This morning I went out and water was everywhere, see video and pictures. The pool company is closed on the weekend and I dont want to mess up the equipment. I also don't want to flood the entire yard. Should I just shut everything down?

I closed the valve to stop the leak

:wave: Welcome to TFP!

I can't tell what those are. Look like a fresh water supply with a backflow preventer? But it would be odd to be in that location. Do you have an auto fill? That is likely the supply for it and turning it off would not be a problem.
