Hurricane Preparedness for POOLS and SPAS

Hurricane Preparedness Tips for POOLS and SPAS

June is synonymous with summer fun! Unfortunately, if you live in a coastal state, so are hurricanes. A hurricane means something different for everyone.  For some, it’s a reason to throw a party, because there ain’t no party like a hurricane party. (Sorry- got carried away there) Others take a more serious approach (not to mention, less lyrical) by doing research and creating a checklist. Whatever your take on hurricane preparedness is, we know your pool and spa is an investment.  An investment you want to protect. If you prepare in advance of the storm, you may even have time to enjoy a hurricane party, too. To help, we have collected a list of tips from our colleagues in the industry of the do’s and don’ts for preparing your pool and/or spa for a storm.

Before you begin your pool and spa preparations, be sure your family and home are as ready for a storm as they can be.  For information on preparing your family and home for hurricane season, visit Red Cross, FEMA, or National Hurricane Center.

Remember, it is always best to get started early!  The idea is to prepare as much as you can now and then finish the remaining tasks PRIOR to the arrival of the storm. For your safety, do not attempt to “prepare” during the storm.

This list is not meant to be all inclusive.  It is a list of tips, collected by us and presented to you, as a tool and resource to help you prepare for hurricane season.

  • “Just wanted to thank you for a great product. After four weeks of trying several different products and also adding way to much chlorine, we can finally see the bottom of our pool. Added Revive! at 6PM last night, by the time we went to bed, we could notice a difference and when I got up this morning everything had settled to the bottom. Used the vacuum for about an hour this morning and were swimming this afternoon. Will probably have to vacuum once more, but so glad this product was recommended to us.”

  • “Easy, simple, worry free…these all describe how my pool maintenance has been since I started using EZ POOL! I have a big pool and it is not a big job with E-Z POOL, just once a week. Once the pool is open and clear in the spring, I just have Caryl’s experts test my pool sample once a week to make sure the balancing chemicals and pH are good. Algaecides are not needed. Brush, brush, brush, as Caryl recommends and my pool is beautiful all summer! Also, it is gentle to the skin and does not effect your hair color. I highly recommend E-Z POOL!”

  • “I have used the EZ Spa now for four years. It is the best spa treatment I have ever used. It makes the water feel really soft and refreshing. I use it once a week and forget it. My spa stays crystal clear. I love this stuff. Not to mention when you use EZ Spa you don’t have to buy so many other chemicals. I also noticed that EZ Spa is extremely gentle on the skin. I can’t say enough about how good this stuff is. Try it, you’ll love it!”
