August and September are very active months for Monsoons. While there is no way to prevent them, there are actions that you can take to help minimize their impact. High winds can blow dust and debris and can wreak havoc on your pool without the appropriate actions.
Here are a few tips to protect your swimming pool through Monsoon season:
- Run your system before and during the storm. Waiting until after the storm has already hit to run your system can overwhelm your cleaning system.
- Monitor all baskets to ensure proper water flow and clean them out if needed.
- Check your filter basket for any obstructions.
- Backwash your filter before and after a big storm.
If you need to evaluate your equipment after a Monsoon, Poolman can provide an estimate for you at no charge. We can also perform a one-time cleaning service if your pool has excessive amounts of dust or debris.
