    TS (Hurricane?) Fay

    I'm in NE FL and it looks like we have a hurricane or t.s. getting ready to pay a visit. It's the first since I've had my pool built last year. All is well - the water is perfect. I try to keep on top of it. I have a 17k gunite - here are my #s:

    pH 7.6
    FC 5.0
    TC 5.0
    CH 300
    CYA 60
    TA 90

    Anything I should/shouldn't do preparing for the storm? Is it ok to put aluminum furniture in the pool? I'm running the pump overnight probably until we lose power, and the swg on boost - or should I add liquid chlorine as a preventative measure? Anything I should/shouldn't do for the screen enclosure? Despite all the rain coming, I'm not worried about flood, but should I do anything for the pump and swg to protect from surges? Turn them off or let them run?

    By the way, waterbear, you're not too far from me - hope all is well in the coming days...
    18k gal inground, everbrite finish, 505 sq ft; 1.5 hp two speed whisperflow; rheem 5100ti 100k btu heat pump; 3 sheer descent falls; DE filter; swg (cell out and using trichlor for now)

    I wouldn't worry too much about preventives here. Just have plenty of bleach on hand for after storm clean up

    Pray! The framework should stand up to at least a cat 3 but if anything becomes airborne it can take the screens out.
    Despite all the rain coming, I'm not worried about flood, but should I do anything for the pump and swg to protect from surges? IF the power goes out turn it off. Or turn it off before the storm hits. Turn them off or let them run?

    Ditto
