Storms and Your Swimming Pool
Storms often bring unique and challenging clean up problems to the pool and spa owner. While the general population is out cleaning up their properties from debris and addressing damage to their homes, the pool owner has that plus the responsibility of ensuring safety and security of their own aqua paradise. Home owners need the skills of a knowledgeable and experienced pool service to get their wet recreational areas in proper and trustworthy working order.
Make sure you hire a professional who knows how to diagnose storm problems. Once pool equipment dries out after a storm, it may appear fine but that does not mean that it came through the storm undamaged. If you had flooding in your pool area or see indications that flooding happened, do not turn on the equipment. Call a pro to check it as it may need to be replaced.

Storm related issues can include electrical, chemical and structural problems. These are all important issues. Therefore, make sure that the pool service's licensing, certifications, insurance and industry affiliations are checked.
Next, ask the pool service exactly what they will do when they open your pool. Ever Clear Pool Service even has a general checklist right on their website of the services and repairs they provide. Opening the pool can be complex, especially after a storm. The water needs to be tested, treated and balanced, the system will have to be pressure tested, and everything will have to be cleaned.
