Watch the Temperature Closely to Know When to Winterize Your Beautiful Pool
The easiest way to know it is time to close things up for winter is to keep an eye on the temperature.
Since we build stunning Kayak Pools all over the east coast, the specific month time frame can vary greatly. Watching the temperature will ensure you take the necessary steps at the perfect time.
Once your local temperatures are CONSISTENTLY staying below 65℉, you can consider it time to winterize your beautiful pool.
This particular temperature is our key to success because, at this temperature, algae is less likely to start growing under a covered pool.
If the weather is consistently hotter, your pool water can start growing unwanted bacteria, including the dreaded algae.
Once the temperature is consistently lower, then your pool water is safe to be covered and left with the winterizing chemicals needed to keep it safe until spring.
Some Areas of the US May Not Need to Winterize Their Pool
For our customers who live further south, like in Florida, you do not need to close your pool for the winter unless you want to.
You can skip the extra steps and just keep an eye on your weather. Should the temperatures drop below freezing on a specific day or two, you can leave your pump running to keep things from freezing.
You can also grab a pool heater to prolong the swim season of your pool. This will keep the water warmer longer into the fall and even let you take a dive earlier in the spring.
There is always a risk of pipes freezing should you have an especially cold spell, but it is up to each home if you want to take that risk or not.
We know it is very common for you to choose to leave your pool open year-round due to mild winters.
Grab a Winterizing Kit When It’s Time.
When the temperatures start to feel a little cooler grab a kit with everything you need. This will make winterizing your water quick and easy.
We can help you make sure you have everything you need to keep your water clear until the spring.
Simply clean, add water care, and cover. Your pool will be safe until you are ready to reopen in the spring.
