When should you close your pool?

We recommend closing your pool when the water is consistently below 65 degrees Fahrenheit. However, if you live in an area with trees, leaves can quickly become your swimming pool’s biggest problem. When this is the case, we recommend closing your pool before the leaves take it over and clog the filtration system! Closing your swimming pool at this time will also help minimize and prevent algae and bacteria growth during the colder months. The last thing any pool owner wants is to open their swimming pool in the spring and find that it has turned green. If you’re unsure if you should close your pool or not, call Pool Scouts at 757-215-9850. We are available for consultation and are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
