If your in-ground pool has a leak somewhere and muddy ground water has come in and the leak is fixed do you need to shock it to get it to clear up again while the filter is running?

If you use a test kit and your chlorine level is high I would say no, let the filter run and while the filter is running vacuum the bottom of the pool to remove some of the mud off the bottom of the pool floor and check the filter for high pressue, so the filter can do its job and get the pool clean. You want to keep your chlorine level above normal during the cleaning level so when the pool is clean your are ready to use it, also I do not know how brown or muddy the water is.

If your pool filter is up and running, also it is best to clean the walls and floor if you have a normal to high chlorine level because this will be also your cleaning agent.

How long should you run a pool pump?

A pool is work, you have to know that going in, the purpose of the filter is to keep the water clean, the pump will make the meter spin the longer you run the filter, however the longer you run the filter the less problems you will have, if you get a rainy season, you need to recycle the water if its hot the chlorine is going to be consumed by the sun, an idle pool can be more costly than by letting the filter run constantly,if you are going to cut back on running the filter do it in the night and not during the day light hours. You will hear all kinds of answers to this questions. My personal opinion is when you open the pool up that is when the pump and filter go to work. When you shut your pool down for the season that is when you pull the plug on the filter and pump. The above is for a pool that is outside, Also the reason I say this we use to get pools also where the filters and pumps where undersized. So once a pool get out of control its harder or takes longer to get it back to its proper levels when running a pool only part time.
