With another hurricane bearing down on the coastal United States, there have been several guides and articles on the topic of preventing property damage and promoting community safety before storms hit. The importance of storing/securing loose deck equipment, chemical treatment, turning off power and protecting electrical equipment are well documented.

The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals ( APSP ) recently developed a Flooded Swimming Pool Fact Sheet with an aim to educate industry professionals and the public on how to safely manage a swimming pool or spa amenity after a severe storm and resulting flood conditions.

The topics covered by the guide include:

  • Personal Safety
  • Electrical Safety
  • Repair Considerations
  • Water Quality Concerns
  • Delayed Repairs

If you manage a community or have a residential swimming pool that is affected by the hurricane, this guide is a valuable resource when dealing with flooded swimming pool conditions after the storm.
