Swimming Pool Maintenance Tips for Fall

Swimming Pool Maintenance Tips for Fall

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.

You still have the ability to use the pool over the next few months, you need to consider whether you actually will go for a swim. Maybe you’ll be busy with the kids back in school, or perhaps you prefer to only use your pool when it’s extra hot out. Regardless of your reasoning, you may consider covering your pool if you won’t use it for an extended period of time. This helps keep debris like leaves and bugs out.

Keep an eye on your swimming pool.

Even on the days when the sun isn’t shining, it’s imperative to pay attention to your pool’s health. Make a note to yourself to check on the pool weekly, and test the pH levels regularly. If you notice any deviations, call in professional help.

    I agree with you in that it is important to consult with a professional when taking care of your pool and making any repairs to it. It is important to remember that taking the time to do some research and to compare several pool contractors can help you find the best one for your needs. Personally, I would want to read online reviews and ratings to make sure I get quality services from a company that has a good reputation.

    My kids have been asking for a pool for years now and I finally may be giving in. I want to learn all the proper maintenance tips before installing it. I like that you mentioned how covering it when not using it can help keep things clean.

    My pool will not drain. I went do drain it so that I could get new water in there because it was getting kind of old, but it didn’t work. So I like how you suggested to contact pool experts to help you do the routine maintenance even if you don’t have a problem. Maybe that would’ve helped me avoid this, but now I just need to find a pool service near me.

    I liked that you had mentioned that the best decision that you can make to handle your pool is to have a professional come out and handle the maintenance for it. My wife and I haven’t been sure how to handle our pool with the change in seasons and since we’re new to this, we’re worried about damaging it. We’ll have to take your advice and start looking for a professional to handle everything before anything gets damaged.

    Thank you for the post on swimming pool maintenance tips for fall. I like the idea to use a pool covering if it is not going to be used for an extended period of time. That way you won’t have to worry about cleaning a lot of debris from it when you go to use it again.
