IN CASE OF EXTENDED POWER OUTAGE

Happy Winter, Luxe Outdoors & Pit Stop Family:
In an abundance of caution, we are providing all current Pit Stop subscribers with a detailed winterization email of the pool
equipment bay. We learned in February 2021, that communication is compromised during a power outage, as internet and
cell coverage are diminished, hence the proactiveness.


***CAUTION – DO NOT COMPLETE THE STEPS DESCRIBED BELOW UNLESS temperatures are below 35 degrees,
AND you experience an extended loss of power.***

 

What do I do if I can’t run my equipment because I have no power or because my equipment is frozen?
 MOST IMPORTANT - Turn off the breakers to ALL pool equipment.
 Remove all pump lids and GENTLY unscrew the thumb screw drain plugs on each pump. They are brittle when
cold. By removing these plugs, you will drain out the water from the pump. Please take care to keep both the plugs
and associated orings, as they are both required to seal the pump back up once power is restored.
