Let`s get soaking wet!
Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner. The large gatherings, cookouts, swimming pools opening, firework displays and other communal activities have been scaled back significantly for the health of our community and loved ones. The temperatures will be around 70 degrees as a high and there is rain coming on Saturday...BOOO! The rest of the extended weekend looks sunny to partly cloudy and pleasant.
Whether your celebration includes small fireworks, bonfires or swimming pools, safety is paramount. If you are using small fireworks, make sure there is a bucket of water or sand to extinguish them when done. Sparklers can reach 1200 degrees and can cause severe burns or the sparks coming off of it can cause eye damage. Make sure your children, friends or family are not running with them and put them into the bucket of water and sand when complete.
Having a swimming pool is a major responsibility, from keeping it clean to keeping the pH in a normal range. If you top off your pool with water keep an eye on the hose connections and the level of water. If you leave the water hose running for a couple days to top off the pool it can become disastrous if there is a leak that you are not aware of. Make sure the outside faucet the hose is attached to is not leaking, check the water pipe inside the house that is attached to the faucet outside and make sure there is no leaking. Also check the hose connection and the water line at least one to two times a day. Having a leak go undetected for a day or even a few hours can be disastrous and expensive.
