Winter brings power outages, and that might have you worried about your swimming pool. What can you do in case of a power outage?
In this article, we look at six steps to maintaining your pool in a power outage.
While you may not have power now, the first thing you should do is turn off all breakers to your pool. This way, when the power does return, you can assess your pool in a controlled environment before everything turns back on and causes potential havoc.
Not only can you come to us for advice, we can also provide you with top notch experienced service technicians.
Freezing water expands, and it needs a place to go. To avoid cracking and damaging lids, removing pump pot and filter lids to avoid extra built-up pressure. This also provides extra space for any ice to go (during the winter).
Similar to removing lids, opening as many valves as you can, including the air relief valve on top of your filter, relieves pressure on the water that may expand within your equipment.
You can also remove many of your plugs to account for expanding water. Remove the pump pot plug, pump volute plug, the drain plugs next to the heater and the plug found at your dial valve. While most frozen plugs can be removed by hand, if needed, use a pair of pliers for extra leverage.
As an extra step of protection, you can disconnect your motor from power if you are able.
Next, let’s look at what to do once your power comes back on.
The power is finally back on… now what?
