Pump off for a few days- what to do?

Postby MNPools » Tue 05 Jun, 2018 16:23

Sorry, new to the board and wasn't sure where to post. The o-ring on my chlorine tank somehow got damaged enough that i need a new one. Store had to order it and won't be here for 3 more days. Can't really run the pump without it, as water spews everywhere. What do i do in the interim? Just check chlorine and shock if necessary? We are having people over this weekend and I don't want cloudy, unsafe or unclean water. In-ground, have a cover and it's around 80 degrees this week, if that matters. Thanks!

Just check your levels are OK
If you have to add chlorine, brush to circulate it
