After The Storm

Post Clean Up:  Do not use your automatic pool cleaner to do all the heavy lifting.  Remove large twigs, branches and the bulk of leaves and debris with a leaf rake and skimmer net.  Use the cleaners to pick up the fine dirt and debris.

Turning Power Back On:  Do not turn the power back on if the equipment was submerged.  You may want to have a pool professional inspect your equipment to make sure it is safe to turn on.

Water Check After The Storm:  Make sure you bring a water sample into the pool supply store after the hurricane passes through to assess the impact of the storm on your water chemistry.

Good luck and stay safe.
