When Should You Close Your Pool In Amherst?

Most owners choose to close their pools in early October in Amherst. This can be pushed a little later if you have a pool heater, but you’ll still want to close your pool before you have to spend hours fishing out leaves. When your pool’s temperature goes below 60 degrees, bacteria and algae become dormant, making it a perfect time to close your pool and inhibit their growth all winter long.

What Happens If You Don’t Winterize Your Pool?

If you don’t protect your pool, the freezing winters that come to Amherst can severely damage your pool. Undrained pipes and filters can get cracked and broken while draining too much water from your pool can result in raised foundations from surrounding hydrostatic pressure in the ground. Lastly, without proper water treatment, algae can grow quickly and cost your extra to clean in the spring.
