For many Long Islanders, post Labor Day weekend signals the end of pool season. Homeowners begin the process of closing their pools and spas even though weather conditions are still favorable for many outdoor activities. If you are looking to extend the pool season and gain additional enjoyment from the backyard space here are some suggestions.
Climatize the water temperature to accommodate the cooler air temperatures in September and October. Maintaining comfortable pool water temps can be achieved by adding a heat pump, fuel type heater or even combining the two types of heaters for higher efficiency which is known as Hybrid heating. Another option is utilizing an automatic pool cover that opens and closes with a click of a button.
Keep in mind that you don’t need to be inside the pool to gain pleasure from the poolscape.
