It’s hurricane season and for those of us in South Florida, that means it’s time for our yearly review of every hurricane checklist we can find. You already know the drill, is your roof ready for the wind? Do you have batteries and enough water to outlast a hurricane? How many canned goods do you have saved up? In the event of an evacuation, do you know where you are going? But what about after a hurricane, do you know what to do then? Our post-hurricane pool cleanup checklist is designed to help get you living like normal. Oh, and we should mention, it’s free to download.
You are a responsible pool owner. You regularly check your pool levels to make sure the chemicals are balanced and perform weekly maintenance checks. Unfortunately, though, like most Floridians, you are dealing with hard water. Hard water, while not ideal, is not the end of your fun-filled days in your swimming pool.
A leaking swimming pool can lead to costly water loss in addition to threatening the safety of swimmers. Leaks can also lead to a host of other difficulties such as structural damage and skimmer problems. Whether you are a homeowner with a leaking lap pool or the maintenance manager of a public pool, it is your responsibility to ensure that you identify and address leak repairs.
