As the summer season comes to an end, pool owners across Wisconsin face the question of when to close their beloved pools. At A-1 Pools, we understand the importance of maintaining your pool’s longevity and ensuring a solid pool closing and smooth transition into the colder months.
In this blog post, we will explore the factors to consider when determining the right time to close your pool and the benefits of using A-1 Pools Service for a hassle-free pool closing experience.
Weather Patterns and Temperature Drops
One of the key indicators that it’s time for your pool closing is the changing weather patterns and dropping temperatures. Autumn brings cooler temperatures, and it’s important to prevent any potential damage to your pool caused by freezing water.
As a general guideline, it is recommended to close your pool when the average daily temperature consistently drops below 70 degrees Fahrenheit. In Wisconsin, this usually occurs around late September or early October.
Fall Leaves and Debris
Autumn also marks the season of falling leaves and increased debris in your pool. As beautiful as the foliage may be, leaves, twigs, and other debris can wreak havoc on your pool’s water chemistry and clog your filtration system.
Closing your pool before the peak of leaf fall can save you time and effort in cleaning, ensuring a cleaner and healthier pool come springtime.
Consideration for Extended Swimming Season
While the general recommendation is to close your pool in September or October, there are instances where pool owners may opt to extend their swimming season. If you have a heated pool, you may choose to keep your pool open for a longer period. However, it’s important to weigh the benefits against the potential risks and costs associated with extended pool use.
By utilizing a pool heater, you can extend your swimming season and enjoy your pool for a longer period. With precise temperature control, you can create a comfortable and inviting swimming environment, even as the weather starts to cool down. The ability to swim earlier in the spring and later in the fall enhances the value of your pool and provides more opportunities for relaxation and enjoyment.
