Forum Title: Hurricane coming
Hi, I live in West Palm BEach Fl, and it seems a large hurricane is coming, or at least a very big storm. Might lose my pool screen, but hopefully not. Anyway, is there anything I should do to my perfectly balanced pool, before the storm comes? Is the pool water drinkable? Always keep it at: FC 5-6 TA 80 CYA 80 PH 7.5 Guess it will be a mess after the storm. Even though it is SWG, I always have about 12 gallons of bleach on hand. thx

No, the CYA makes it unsuitable for drinking. Fine for flushing toilets or bathing though. Probably not much you can do chemically. If you are at risk for flooding, you might want to remove your pump, SWCG etc. and place them out of reach of the water. It's important that your pool is full. This helps keep ground water from raising the shell.

You may want to raise your FC up to SLAM level in advance as lots of organics will likely be blown in
