    Hurricane Irene coming--what to do with my AGP ?

    Ahh---working so hard this past week trying to get my levels right. And here comes big bad Irene.
    We are probably going to get 60-75MPH winds by me. Should I buy a cover for the pool ?
    If not what do I do about overflowing water out of the pool ? I cant leave my pump on during the storm (no dedicated electric yet)...
    What can I do with my pump while its off to prevent overflowing of the pool ?

    Lotsa talk about Irene.

    Don't use a cover and store pump/filter inside if you can.

    Several threads for Irene going on. Do a google search, bottom left on page, for "Irene".

    In the meantime, I will find the Irene threads and bump them up.

    Good luck and stay safe.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    No way I can store pump and filter...my filter weighs like 250 lbs with the sand.

    Moving the pump & filter is only appropriate for above ground pools with smaller pieces of equipment. If your equipment is normally left outside over the winter there is no need to move it now.

    Mods, is it possible to create a temporary forum in which to combine all Irene threads? Many of us are in the path and interested in the advice and experiences shared. Putting them under one primary category would make it easier to follow.
