Hurricane Irma Safety


September 6, 2017September 6, 2017

This letter is to make you aware of a potential tropical weather event in the Southwest Florida area. For the most up-to-date information, please visit: https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

A few items to remember prior to the possible storm:

• Please secure or try to bring inside all loose items, patio furniture, umbrellas, toys, plants, decorations, barbeques, etc.   DO NOT throw grills or patio furniture inside of the pool. This can cause rust and damage to the pool finish.

• If you have a pool cage, take time to trim trees of extra limbs and branches around the area.  We do not recommend that you cut the screen enclosure panels.

• If you have deck drains or storm gutters, please make sure the drains and gutters are unobstructed and able to drain water away as efficiently as possible.

• If the storm makes landfall, we recommend all electric power for the pool equipment should be turned off at the subpanel and the main circuit breakers.

• We recommend that you never empty your pool.  Keeping sufficient water levels in your pool provides important weight to hold the sides and bottom in place. Pools that have been emptied may experience serous structural problems and could even be lifted off their foundations due to heavy water amounts adding pressure in the surrounding ground area.

• This is also a good time to make sure you have all your insurance information updated.

• As of today, 9/6/17, it is our objective to complete all scheduled work with the exception of digging holes.  We will do our best to resume all scheduled jobs once conditions improve.

What to expect after the storm:

• Many times, there are disruptions to telecom networks, please try to e-mail us should you need information or wish to communicate with us directly after the storm.

• www.nbc-2.com or www.winknews.com are the local channels that stream updates online. We would recommend following these channels for any local updates.

We will be monitoring the situation as it progresses. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office.
Stay Safe,

Ck SuVice President
