After the Storm Tips

The work is not over after the storm, especially if there is a power outage.

Here are some tips from Lee County Emergency Management Services to maintain the water quality of your pool:

Clear all debris from the water.

Add chlorine, such as 10 percent sodium hypochlorite granules called “shock,” to super chlorinate the water. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and maintain the super-chlorinated state until the electricity is restored.

Do not allow anyone into the super-chlorinated water.

Be sure everything is dry before dealing with electrical startup. Check your circuit breakers to be sure they are off before attempting to reconnect electrical equipment such as pump motors. Inspect the wiring (especially ground wires) for proper connections. Be sure you are following manufacturers’ instructions when reactivating equipment. If electric motors have been exposed to water, they should be checked by a competent professional.
