Swimming Pool Care After Thunderstorms - July 27, 2016
Recently our weather has been a little unpredictable! Today our area has had some rain and some thunder storms. Weather like this can turn any sparkling pool into a mess by introducing a variety of dirt, debris and other pollutants. Proper cleanup can ensure that your swimming pool will clear up quicker and you will be back to swimming in no time.
Inspect the pool equipment. Turn off all equipment including the pump. Inspect around the pump and the rest of the filtration system to verify if there is any damage. If damage has occurred, keep all equipment off until the problem can be resolved.
Sweep off any debris around the pool deck and sweep it away from the pool. This will help reduce the amount of debris that ends up in the pool.
Remove any debris out of the swimming pool. This includes all pine needs, leaves, bugs and whatever else may of blown into the water. Remember to remove any debris that may of collected in the pool equipment.
Vacuum the swimming pool once the filtration system is in full working order. Brush the pool walls, corners, and floor to remove any debris and then vacuum the pool. During the vacuuming process, the pool will become hazy and may require a second or third attempt at vacuuming once all the suspended particles settle to the floor bottom.
Test your swimming pool chemistry. The pool chemistry may have been spot on prior to the storm but that’s before rainwater, organic materials, and debris were introduced into the water. These items will consume any residual chlorine that was established in the water prior to the storm. Add enough shock to bring the chlorine level to 10.0 ppm and wait for the chlorine level to reduce to about 5.0 ppm then make any additions as needed to balance the waters pH and alkalinity.
Keeps the swimming pools circulation system running for 24 hours after shocking. Allowing the filtration system to run this long will assist to catch any particles that may be in the water.
If clarity issues occur, bring in two cups of water from elbow depth into one of our four store locations for a free water analysis.
