Safeguarding Your Pool During Hurricane Season: Essential Tips


As hurricane season approaches, protecting your pool becomes a vital part of ensuring the safety of your property and maintaining the integrity of your pool investment. At A&G Concrete Pools, we’re committed to helping you navigate this challenging time. In this article, we’ll share essential prevention tips to safeguard your pool and its surroundings during hurricane season.

Secure Loose Items

Before a hurricane arrives, take the time to secure or store any loose items around your pool area, such as pool toys, furniture, and accessories. These items can become projectiles in strong winds, causing potential damage to your pool and its surroundings.

Trim Trees & Plants

Overhanging trees and large plants pose a threat during hurricanes. Trim branches and foliage to prevent them from falling into the pool or causing structural damage.

Lower Water Levels

Lowering your pool’s water level can help prevent overflowing and potential flooding during heavy rainfall. However, exercise caution not to lower it excessively, as an empty pool can be susceptible to damage from groundwater pressure.

Secure Pool Equipment

Pool equipment, including pumps, filters, and heaters, should be securely fastened or covered to prevent damage. These components are crucial to your pool’s functionality and require protection from wind and debris.

Use a High Quality Pool Cover

Invest in a durable and well-secured pool cover designed to withstand strong winds and debris. An effective cover helps protect your pool from contamination and debris during the storm.

Maintain Water Chemistry

Balanced water chemistry is vital to prevent potential damage to your pool’s surfaces and equipment. Ensure your pool’s pH, chlorine, and alkalinity levels are within recommended ranges before the hurricane hits.

Turn Off Pool Equipment

Turn off all pool equipment, including pumps, filters, and heaters, before the hurricane’s arrival. This precaution prevents potential electrical hazards and conserves energy.

Post-Hurricane Inspection

After the storm has passed, thoroughly inspect your pool and its surroundings for debris and damage. Assess the condition of your pool cover, equipment, and pool structure. If you notice any issues, contact our experts for guidance on repairs and maintenance.
