When is The Right Time To Open Your Pool?

Now that the temperatures are warming up, you’re probably eager to get in the pool; we are too! Going for a swim and splashing around in your backyard pool with friends and family is what summer is all about. But, opening your pool, so it is ready to be used, isn’t always so easy.

Here’s what you need to know about opening your pool when the time is right:

The ideal time to open your pool is when the temperatures have reached above 70 degrees Fahrenheit consistently during the day. There are several reasons as to why this is the best time to take off your pool cover:

  • Algae – Algae grows from hot temperatures, so waiting too long to open your pool can leave you looking at a dirty pool with a mountain of algae. 
  • Pollen – Pollen seems to be just about everywhere during the spring months, and it can be damaging to your sitting pool water if you wait too long.
  • Expenses – Some homeowners believe that opening your pool too early just leads to more costs on chemicals and maintenance. However, this is not the case, especially with saltwater pools. With the added work and cleanup from opening your pool late, the expenses just about even out, so why not enjoy more time in the pool?
  • Weather – You never truly know what mother nature has in store for us! Sometimes, the weather gets hotter early in the year, and you’ll want to take advantage of it.
