    Hurricane Matthew pool preparation. (Orlando). What to do before?

    Thank you. It is my first time with a pool and a hurricane getting close to my area. Any tips will be appreciate. I know that definitely it is going to overflow. If there is no power I wont be able to drain some water. I know the pool screen will be gone.

    Just "let it be" and deal with the issue once the storm is gone? There is no much I can do for now? Thank you for your help and orientation.

    My suggestion is to boost the FC to SLAM level and lower the water down a foot or so, bring everything you can inside, furniture, plants, you name it. In a Cat 3+ hurricane anything that is not bolted down is subject to moving. Also go take lots of pre-storm photos for insurance purposes.
