How to Enjoy Your Pool Longer
As temperatures begin to cool and kids reluctantly board their buses for school, many families consider shutting down their pools for the season. Closing pools after Labor Day seems to be an unofficial rule. But sometimes, rules are made to be broken. Just as you’re not obligated to stop wearing white after Labor Day, innovations in pool technology allow you to keep your pool in operation long after the holiday.
Here’s how (and why) you might consider keeping your pool running through the month of September.
Add Some Heat
Adding a heater to your pool is the easiest way to extend your swimming season. Unless you enjoy a polar swim, a heater is a must in a four season climate. There are even heating pumps available that transfer available heat from the air into your water, saving you money on your energy bills and providing an eco-friendly option for heating your pool.
Installing outdoor heaters on your decks is a wallet-friendly option for extending your swimming season. A good outdoor heater will take the fall bite out of the air and create a relaxing Bahama breeze.
There’s an App for That
Fall temperatures can vary, so you’ll want to make sure you have access to your pool’s temperature at all times. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, there are phone apps that grant you access to your pools’ specs at all times. Depending on the brand of system you have, you can install an application to control your pool’s temperature from your phone. That means you can raise your pool temperature while you’re at work so it’s ready for you to take a dive when you come home.
Relax and Have Fun
It’s easy to get swept up in the whirlwind of activity September brings. Your home and your pool should be an oasis away from the stress of the autumn season. Think of September as an opportunity to extend the lazy, hazy days of summer. A pool gives you the opportunity to relax and have fun as a family after school and work.
There’s no need to bid adieu to your pool just yet. Following these tips is a surefire way to extend your pool season and your summer well into fall. You can even wear your white swimsuit in the pool – you rebel, you.
