I usually go till late September/early October in good years. Close it before the leaves start falling. My friend does the week after Labor Day, but he misses Indian summer.
If it’s a decent weekend in mid sept and a hurricane may be coming up the coast, I’ll close. Especially if less than ideal swimming weather is forecast for the next few weeks. If the forecast is good, keep it open. However, I’ve been burned by the weatherman before.That's my plan as well - last week of Sept or 1st week of Oct.
I used to close the weekend after Labor Day. The cold nights kill it fast. Since I moved to Texas I keep it open till Thanksgiving
Do it myself with our above groundDo you guys close your pools yourselves or have a pro do it? Do any companies insure their work in case pipes freeze or something?
None of the guys I have used ever mentioned anything about insurance. I usually just have it done, but have opened my pool many times. Opening is easy, but closing is a pain in the ass. They blow the lines out and two guys who do hundreds of pool closings have a much easier time than me and my wife doing it.Do you guys close your pools yourselves or have a pro do it?
