Spring is almost here and many Arizonans are excited for the warm weather. For many of us, this includes shorts, flip flops, sunscreen and most importantly, a swimming pool. Residents begin preparing their pools for our long and hot seasons and for those without a pool, a friend with a pool is a friend indeed! As we prepare here in the West, the Midwest prepares to continue fighting their cold winter storms.
For many residents in a small town named Leslie, located in Georgia, their main issue has been the heavy rain. Many flood warnings have been issued for the last several days and the weather is just beginning to clear up. Unfortunately, for one pool, the heavy rain had finally taken its toll. The 20 feet by 60 feet fully concrete pool, had managed to be lifted from the ground. Half of the pool is dislodged, while the brick around it is cracked and broken. As heavy as the concrete pool may seem, the power of the heavy rain was enough to raise the pool from the surface! The homeowners could not believe that rain could do such a thing.
While doubtful we will have the issue of too much rain in Arizona, it’s still a good idea to check your pumps and pool equipment regularly. If you have any issues or are considering upgrading your pool, please contact the professionals at Platinum Pools today.
