Preparing Swimming Pool for Hurricane

Test the Waters: Take this Quiz On Swimming Pool Chemicals

FALSE-Clear water does not necessarily mean clean water. Clear pool water has been oxidized (organic contaminants have been broken down and destroyed). However, to ensure healthy swimming conditions, pool water must also be sanitized so it is free of bacteria and algae. The only way to determine if water is properly sanitized is to test it using a reliable test kit. Acidity in the pool for those only using chlorine can be corrosive to your pool equipment but also irritate a swimmers skin especially young swimmers.

How to Protect Your Pool During Hurricane

Well the Northeast is preparing for Hurricane Irene. As I write this traffic and grocery stores are busy, filled with people stocking up on food, water and batteries; but what about your swimming pool? How do you prepare your pool for such an event as a hurricane in the Northeast? Depending upon your available time you may wish to close down the pool before the storm arrives, for some as school is beginning next week this may be appealing. By closing the pool and covering it you will avoid the windblown debris such as leaves, sticks etc. from going into the pool.
