Once those temperatures start to get a little chilly in the morning, many people either start to bundle up or refuse to acknowledge the temperature change. Whether you are the type of person who likes to hibernate through winter in as many sweaters as you can or you wear shorts even when it snows, pool owners everywhere need to realize that pools are a seasonal enjoyment. With seasonal pools, there is a time for pool opening and a time for pool closing. So, how do you know when it is time for pool closing? It depends. Let’s look at some factors that contribute to your pool closing date.
- If your pool has a heater- If your pool comes with a heater, you might be able to extend your pool closing date another few weeks. Keep in mind, however, that if your electricity goes out at any time when the temps are freezing, your pool water will freeze inside the pipes, causing massive repairs and expenses.
- Your climate- Some people don’t need to close their pools at all, such as those who live in the southern or desert states with consistently high temperatures. Even in these states, however, most people do their opening and closings around Memorial Day and Labor Day respectively.
- Temperature- Keep your eye on the temperature in your area! If your temperature is getting down to the 30s at night, it’s time to schedule your pool closing.
