What to Consider Before Opening Your Pool Early

Opening your pool early can be a tempting prospect, but there are a few things to consider before you do.

In case you haven’t noticed, the weather has been jumping up and down like it’s trying to get ready for bathing suit season. One positive aspect of this is that we’ve been able to enjoy a few uncharacteristically warm days before spring officially arrives. All this nice weather might have you looking at your pool and dying to spend a nice evening poolside, grilling and hosting friends and family. Before you rip that pool cover off though, there are a few things to consider before opening your pool early.       


Obviously, if it’s still regularly hitting freezing cold temperatures and snowing it might be a bit early to open your pool. If summer hits early and you’re fairly confident it’s not just a mirage, get to it. The danger in opening a pool too early is the risk of the water in your pipe and equipment freezing. On the other hand, waiting too long to open your pool can lead to a real tough first week that’ll include some serious cleaning and water treatment.


Many people worry about the added cost of opening your pool early. You have to buy the chemicals, for starters, and you’ll use more over the course of a season if your pool is open longer. A large number of new pools use salt water sanitation systems, meaning you don’t have to worry about buying more chemicals. If you do rely on chlorine to sanitize your pool, you’ll have to decide if the minimal cost isn’t worth enjoying your pool for a few extra months.
