In South Louisiana, we are accustomed to acting quickly to prepare for incoming hurricanes or storms. We rush to get our groceries, supplies, and gasoline and still have time to prep the pool. We hope for best and plan for the worst! Here’s a quick checklist to prepare the pool.
Storm Prep Pool Tips:
1) Keep the pump running 24/7 to prepare for heavy rains.
2) Get chlorine levels above 5 ppm.
3) Keep tablets or sticks in the skimmer or feeder, or keep the sanitizer boost on, because rain will dilute the chlorine level.
4) Secure items around the pool to avoid wind damage.
If you have enough advance warning, bring in a water sample for a free computerized analysis. For more information, contact your nearest Sabine Pools, Spas & Furniture in Lake Charles, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, or Gonzales LA. We will maintain normal store hours as long as possible during storm prep periods.
