spring season is the wettest time of the year. Storms can come at a moments notice and can easily cause damage to your swimming pool if you are not careful. The good news is that there are several steps you can take to ensure the longevity of your swimming pool. Here is a guide to protecting your swimming pool from the stormy weather that lies ahead!
Don’t Drain Your Pool
Many pool owners make the mistake of draining their swimming pool when they hear that a big storm is on its way. It is actually in your best interest to leave the water because it weighs down the bottom and sides of the pool, as the rain raises the water table underneath.
Store Pool Furniture
Many pool owners either forget or neglect to take this step. If you want all of your table and chairs to last for several more seasons, you want to be sure to store away all furniture in your garage, basement, or shed. High winds can quickly pick up and throw pool-related items, so it is best to take precaution.
Turn Off Electric Equipment
Electricity and water do not mix. For this reason, it is best to turn off all electricity before the storm. It is also a good idea to cover up all electrical equipment or store it in a safe and dry place.
Shock Your Swimming Pool
Before the big storm hits, it can be beneficial to give your swimming pool an additional supply of chlorine.
