Five Steps to Take After Your Swimming Pool Has Storm Damage

Has a hurricane or tropical storm caused damages to your property and swimming pool?  Are you wondering how you will protect your expensive pool investment after it is damaged?  If you have suffered storm or hurricane damages to your swimming pool, you will likely be eligible for compensation for repairs from your insurance company.  When you work with our public claims adjuster in central Florida, we will be able to assist you with your needs throughout this process to properly assess your damages.  When you have storm damage to your swimming pool, we recommend that you follow these five steps to restore its function.

Assess and Report Damages

The first thing you will want to do anytime you incur damages to your property is to assess the damages.  Be sure to report these damages to your insurance company using a public claims adjuster in central Florida so you can get compensation for repairs.  This process may be lengthy, especially at a time when many other residents have suffered a similar situation, so you'll want to start this immediately.

Inspect for Structural Damage

Before you do anything to repair your pool, you want to thoroughly inspect  for any structural damage.  If your pool has suffered structural damage, it may be at risk for flooding or even breaking.  Check for cracks, debris, leaks, and high water levels.  These can indicate much larger issues that pose a risk or danger for your home or neighborhood.

Remove Debris from Pool

After you deem the area to be safe, you can start to remove any debris from the pool and pool area.  This can include branches that have blown into your yard or pool, debris from nearby yards, or anything that doesn't belong there.  You'll want to use the skimmer and vacuum to remove smaller debris from the sides, top, and bottom of your pool.

Check the Filter for Damages

After you clean your pool, be sure to give some attention to the filer to ensure it is properly working.  Because of the large amount of debris that has made its way into your pool, it may be overworked or broken from the storm.  Take some time to take care of your filter and restore its function.

Chlorinate the Water

You will want to add a lot of chlorine to your pool water to remove any germs or bacteria that could have travelled into the water during the storm.  Environmental contaminants can actually cause a lot of damage to your water if neglected, so be sure to use a lot of chlorine in the days after the storm to get your water safe for swimming once again.
