The  2014 Snow Storm in Atlanta not a good day for swimming

We found some intriguing online swimming pool photos of the January 28th 2014 snow storm that you may enjoy. This historical snow storm left Atlanta paralyzed but as you can see it was not all bad. We must have a member of the Polar Bear Club in Atlanta,poised and ready to take the frigid plunge…look closer though…this pool has a winter cover.

Did you have time to prepare your pool for the snow and freezing temperatures? For the most part, this storm was not expected. Did you officially Winterize your pool or did you wing it this winter? We would like to know, feel free to leave us a comment below.

Inground Swimming pool covered or uncovered for winter?

Did you ever get the chance to lower the water level and drain those pipes?

If not, were you at least able to run the pump over night so it would not freeze?

Our professional team at Aqua Fun Inc. is here to help if your pool was affected by the storm.

If you did not cover your pool this winter then you may want to consider balancing the pool’s chemicals, definitely clean out the pool of any debris and keep an eye on the pump and mechanics of the pool.

Physical and Emotional Benefits of built-in hot Spa

  • stress relief
  • better sleep
  • joint pain
  • blood pressure
  • fibromyalgia
  • Type 2 Diabetes 
  • chronic pain
  • back pain
  • cardiovascular improvements – Soaking in a spa simulates exercise. It increases the heart rate, yet it doesn’t increase blood pressure. In fact, study participants who relaxed in spas had a decrease in blood pressure, while participants who exercised on bicycles experienced in increase in blood pressure. The regular use of spas and hot tubs gives you some of the same health benefits of exercise but with less heart stress – * Mayo Clinic: Mayo Clinic Ok’s Spas for Heart Patients

Not a fad!

According to wikipedia*,  the healing benefits of hydrotherapy have been known to many of the world’s great cultures, with a history that dates back thousands of years. Egyptians bathed in heated waters treated with flowers and herbs, while the Greeks believed that water therapy was essential to optimal health. In India, hydrotherapy was essential to well-being, with treatments that included inhaling steam to optimize the respiratory system.

Have fun!
