Proper Pool Maintenance Service Before the Storm
- Do not empty your pool or lower the water level. It is not necessary to drain water from your swimming pool.
- Let the pool overflow. Runoff will be the same as a street, tennis court, patio deck or saturated ground.
- Turn off all electrical power to your pool equipment at the breaker.
- Remove all loose items from the swimming pool area. All patio furniture, pool toys, pool maintenance equipment should be safe and secured. Do not throw patio furniture into the pool – this could cause damage to your swimming pool finish.
- Super chlorinate your pool. This will help prevent algae from forming and the pool water could be used for washing or flushing toilets if municipal supplies should fail.
After the Storm
- Do not empty your pool. Even if your pool is full of debris, high ground water levels, after the storm, could cause structural damage – wait until water levels fall back to normal.
- Super chlorinate your swimming pool. Remove as much debris from inside the pool as possible.
- Check pool system, with electricity off, for signs of damage. Look for signs of water intrusion, broken pipes, cracks in the filter, etc. If you have any doubt please call us before turning on power.
- Be aware! Some chlorine feeders need special care to restart. Guardian Pools will respond as soon as possible to assist you after the storm.
