Thanks again for the wonderful help I received here. My family has been enjoying our crystal clear pool all season- my two little girls especially. In fact, because my wife is a teacher, she becomes the 'pool girl' during the summer while she is off of work, which means I get to come home from work and just enjoy it!
So new question. I searched and read through the five or so threads on hurricane preparation without much luck. I live in Virginia Beach and Hurricane Irene looks like she is going to make an appearance this weekend. I intend to lower the water level a bit and dump some chlorine, but I know that will do little to help, especially once the power goes out (and it will in my neighborhood - doesn't take much).
My bigger question is the pool fence. We have a fiberglass safety fence installed, posts in concrete with black mesh. I'm wondering if I should remove it so it doesn't get blown away. It takes a lot of effort to pull a post out, and they are all connected to each other with locking pins, but then again hurricanes are strong and that fence cost a pretty penny.
But if I don't have to take it out, that'd be great, I have enough to do.
What do you all think?
