Cape May Court House, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/04/2019 -- As one of the leading pool maintenance companies in Wildwood and surrounding Jersey Shore locations, Island Pools & Patios would like customers to take serious precautions before the upcoming winter storms. Serious storms can cause significant damage to the pool liner, electrical equipment, and surrounding objects. To prevent costly repairs, homeowners are encouraged to prep the pool area before an approaching storm.
The Island Pools & Patios team would like to clear up one of the biggest misconceptions about maintaining a pool during storm season. Many homeowners think the best course of action is to drain the pool to avoid overflooding the surrounding area. In reality, it's best to maintain current pool water levels. Water acts as a weight to keep the pool in place when the water table rises and risks ejecting the pool liner. Those who are worried about flooding should lower the water levels a maximum of 1-2 feet.
Other important pool maintenance tips include shutting down automatic equipment, shocking the pool, venting screens, and moving pool furniture. Even electronics that are deemed waterproof can sustain water damage; as such, pool equipment and electrical systems should be shut down, covered, or possibly removed, so they don't break. Similarly, all pool furniture should be moved to a secure location.
Although the days of weekly pool service for Avalon and other Jersey Shore homes are over, Island Pools & Patios is happy to help all customers by answering any questions and concerns they have during the off-season. Contact them online at https://islandpoolsnj.com/.
