When should you close your pool?


Some pool owners think pools should be closed when the kids head back to school, but there is actually time left to enjoy the pool. In fact, closing or covering your pool too early can be counterproductive. Many micro-organisms (algae and bacteria) can thrive and reproduce if a pool is covered with the water temperature too warm. You should wait until the pool water temperature drops below 65 degrees to begin winterizing, or off-season closing. Also an open pool is more attractive than a closed pool.

Another way to extend the enjoyment of your pool beyond the summer is to add a gas or electric heater. With the high efficiency rating of today's pool heaters, you can extend the use of your backyard pool for a nominal fee to your utility bill. Please contact us at (703) 451-5905 if you are interested in adding a pool heater or replacing/upgrading your existing pool heater for a free estimate and consultation.
