Ever tried to shock a green pool with the pump off? Will it

My pump is out of service due to some major re-piping.

Curious if any Pros or others have ever tried to shock a green pool with the pump off? Will it work?

My water level is drained down 30" for the winter and I want to get the water clear for some leak testing on the pool structure.

Please let me know if you have succeeded at turning a pool from green to clear with no circulation?

i have before... you just have to make sure you add floc too and brush you pool very well ... also scoop the surface ( just to stir the top too )..

it will clear.. then what you can do is use a petrol powered transfer pump to vac to waste..
