    Intex Pools and Rain Storms

    Are there any special things that need to be done with an Intex pool during rain storms?
    Should the cover be on or off?
    Should the pump be on or off?
    If it's raining, do you even bother messing with the chemical balance or just wait until the rain stops to adjust?

    We've been having a great time with the pool so far this summer and I just want to take a second to thank everyone for this forum. You all are the reason my pool is so nice and clear!

    Nope, nothing too special anyway.

    Sometimes I'll put the solar cover on, depends on water and air temp mostly.

    Pump is always on, low speed. High speed to skim the surface and vacuum only.

    Most times I dose a little extra chlorine if I know a big storm is coming.

    I wait until the rain stops to check and adjust Ph if needed.
