Now that the summer swimming season is coming to a close, it’s time to start planning any major pool projects that can be performed during the off-season. While South Florida residents can use their pools pretty much all year round, if your pool needs to be drained or shut down for an extended period of time, it’s better to do it while the local temperatures are at their lowest.
Doing major pool repairs or upgrades during the winter months means your family can enjoy your backyard swimming pool when they need it most — during the hot, humid months of summer.
Common Winter Jobs
Winter in Florida means something different than anywhere else. While the weather may still be warm enough for swimming, there are a few weeks in January and February where you may not want to jump into the chilly pool water. These are the best times for planning major pool projects such as upgrades or repairs.
Any type of pool project that will require your pool to be taken out of service should be done during winter, if possible. Obviously, emergency repairs will need to be done at once even if the height of the summer swimming season. But planned maintenance, updates, or repairs should be scheduled when your pool is used the least.
These include projects like painting the interior of the pool, resurfacing the pool, or even replacing the pool altogether. Big jobs like these can take days, even weeks, to complete. So scheduling them during the winter makes sense.
Eagle Pools to the Rescue
You might think pool maintenance companies are slowest during the winter. But actually it’s one of our busiest times of the year. That’s because many homeowners put off pool project until the winter months so they don’t interfere with their pool use.
