THE BEST TIME TO OPEN YOUR POOL
5 REASONS TO OPEN YOUR SWIMMING POOL IN APRIL
1. Weather changes so frequently
April is one of those months where it’s tough to know how the weather is going to act. It could stay in the 40s or could get up into the 70s. If the opportunity presents itself, you’ll be ready.
Have you ever seen the difference between a pool that is opened in April vs. May? There is a pretty big difference with the biggest being visible algae growth. With the temps constantly in the 70+ range during May, algae have plenty of time to grow on the walls and when the pool does finally get opened, it can be very difficult to deal with.
Pollen wreaks havoc on water that is not circulating and it starts in early spring. Pools that have been opened with proper filtration will have little difficulty keeping up, but if it collect in your pool’s water for another month and it will be much harder to clear up at that point.
4. It looks great!
In-ground pools are a beautiful luxury. Water is relaxing and seeing a pool without a cover is a clear sign that spring is here and winter has finally moved on.
5. Come party time, you’ll be ready
Most people want to have their pool open and ready for use before Memorial Day. Opening up by early or mid-April not only gives you the availability to use the pool if the weather is nice, but it also ensures that any problems with equipment or water chemistry can be a problem of the past when it comes time to have your big Memorial Day bash.
Consider these five points as you decide on when to open your swimming pool up this year. Hopefully, this helps you decide to open your pool a little earlier and get that much more enjoyment from it.
