Sept. 22 marked the end of summer for those of us in the northern hemisphere, and now it’s time to prepare for fall. While some people bring in fall with hot pumpkin drinks and cozy sweaters, Floridians typically have a markedly different experience.
October, November and December months are milder in Florida, and our northern neighbors often look on with envy. Fall is the perfect time to enjoy our scenic nature offerings. You also have the ability take some dips in your pool if you don’t mind it being slightly chillier out.
Of course, you likely won’t be using your pool as often as you did during those humid mid-summer days. So how do you prepare your swimming pool for fall? This handy guide from the experts at H&H Custom Pools will help you take care of your swimming pool, even when you’re not using it frequently.
Consider covering your swimming pool.
