If you’ve ever sat around on the weekend watching TV or searching for TV to watch, you may have noticed all of the DIY television shows, or shows that flip houses. Watching shows like that might give you ideas, (I know I get them) on redoing a particular room in the house.

When preparing for an impending storm or hurricane, pool owners should take a few extra precautions. Here we have compiled a list some do’s and don’ts to help you out. While some tasks may seem like common sense, others may surprise you.
Due to the disastrous, record breaking rain over the weekend, some of you might be experiencing pools which are filled too high, or are already over flowing. There’s really nothing dangerous about having a pool which is filled to the brim, but the pool does run better and the filter works more efficiently if the water level isn’t too high.
It’s only the beginning of August; we’re still in one of the hottest time periods here in Florida. It’s been an extremely hot summer, and your air conditioner is probably doing some over time. But is it running too much? Does it stop, or does it seem to run constantly? No, no one wants to be hot and sticky, but no one wants their AC unit to be running constantly either. Luckily, there are some simple things you can check to see what’s causing it to run more.

Spring has sprung, and so has pollen! Pollen, dirt and bugs will collect on the pool surface creating a film. If your pool is in a rental property, this time of year is busier than normal, so there can be build ups of hair and sun tan lotion as well. (This is why it’s always a good idea to rinse before jumping in!)
