In South Florida, it’s possible to keep your pool open all winter long. Unlike our neighbors up north, hot and sunny weather can last throughout the winter months, creating the atmospheric conditions that allow for year-round swimming pool fun.
Obviously, some days will be cooler than others during the winter months. But cold spells don’t last long in the Sunshine State. So while you may need to take a few days off from the pool in January and February, rest assured you will soon be enjoying your backyard swimming pool once again.
Most years, South Florida is warm enough throughout the winter that you don’t have to worry about shutting down your pool. Unlike northern states, we don’t typically experience long stretches of sub-freezing temperatures that can cause pool water to freeze. At the very most, we might get a layer of ice along the top surface of the water during the coldest part of winter — but even that usually is a once in a decade event.
While pools generally can remain open and usable during winter in South Florida, they still need to be properly cleaned and maintained. Water chemicals need to be regularly measured and balanced, pumps and equipment need to be maintained and serviced, and surface dirt and debris need to be removed.
So keeping your pool service provider on the job all winter long is essential to the safe and enjoyable use of your backyard pool.
