    Any suggestions for TS/hurricane pool prep?

    Issac is on the way. We are expecting a lot of rain and probably power outages. I was planning on adding extra bleach before hand. Any other suggestions?

    Also, do I need to worry about all of the water that will end up in the sump pit during the storm? Of course, we will not be able to run out during the storm to pump it.

    Thanks for your help.

    Thank you! We worked very hard over the past few months.

    And I am happy to report no damage to my pool (or home) other than about 2 inches of leaves at the bottom of the pool.

    Thanks for everyone's help.
