Spring is finally here and summer is hot on its heels. With warmer weather approaching many pool owners are beginning the yearly debate, when to open the pool. The answer is fairly straightforward, although there is plenty of room for variation depending on your area. In general, you’ll want to begin to open your pool once the average daily temperature reaches 70 degrees. This number may seem arbitrary but there are a variety of reasons why this is the perfect moment.
Make The Best Of Nature’s Inconsistency
Nature has a huge effect on all things surrounding your pool. From the rapidly fluctuating temperatures to the amount of natural pollution that can accrue while you wait to open. Once the temperature hits a consistent 70 your pool will begin to grow algae, which can rapidly spread and cause you significant trouble to clean. Likewise, with the temperature on the rise, the pollen levels will begin to increase. Like algae, this can quickly get out of control and difficult to clean. By opening your pool early you not only get to enjoy it on the occasional warmer day, but you’ll be ahead of the curve with cleaning making maintenance much easier.
Some may not want to open their pool early because of the increased expenses of running everything longer. But, with advances in pool technology like two-speed motors and salt based systems, the actual cost of running your pool is minimized. When you open earlier and have less cleaning to do the number of additional chemicals will be minimized, significantly dropping your expenses. If you haven’t updated your pool to include these two features, now may be the perfect time to look into them to save yourself time and money for seasons to come.
Enjoy Your Pool For Longer
The true beauty of your pool often has more to do with the area around it then simply just the pool. By opening early you’ll have more time to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of your own backyard.
