    Tropical Storm Prep

    So Erika is on her way to visit South Florida....

    What do I do to prep the pool? First time with a pool and a potential hurricane.

    Most likely scenario:
    -Multiple inches of rain over a day
    -Lots of leaves blown in to the water
    -Some gravel off the roof into the pool
    -6 hours of no power

    Most dangerous scenario:
    -12"+ of rain, overflowing the pool and possibly flooded area around it bringing the lawn into the pool
    -Lots of leaves blown in to the water
    -Some gravel off the roof into the pool
    -Flooded yard puts the pump underwater
    -Multiple day loss of commercial power, but I have generator power and can run the pump, but can't commit to 8 hours a day

    I can have about 10 gallons of Chlorine on hand.

    There is already at least 1 thread discussing this. Perhaps read that and then ask questions if you still have them.
