Tips to care for your pool after a storm When heavy rain, strong winds, and severe storms hit, your pool needs extra care to ensure it’s safe and healthy. Typically after heavy rainfall, a pool will require phosphate removers and adjuster chemicals, but always start with the basics after bad weather strikes and check these things first: Rain heavily dilutes chemicals, especially chlorine and salt. Add extra chlorine, even if you have a salt system, to prevent the levels dropping too low. This minimizes the time for algae to bloom. Check that none of your electrical equipment (i.e. pump, chlorinator) have been damaged by the weather and that no puddles have formed around them. If it looks like there's a safety issue, contact a professional right away. Storms can cause the following: Debris & damage to equipment and surfaces. Motor burnout/fusion.
