As the nights draw in and the days grow shorter, ideas of summer are starting to be put to one side. Depending on your circumstances and the setting in which your pool is located, the arrival of the autumn might not automatically mean that you have to pack away the pool for the winter, especially if decent outdoor conditions do linger for a while longer yet. 

Indeed, there might still be a lot of opportunities for you to kick back, relax, and enjoy a soothing swim over the coming month or two. 

The trick here is to make sure you are as thoroughly prepared as possible for whatever the autumn brings to your pool. That’s why we have put together a guide to what you need to know, if you are to keep your pool ready and prepared for the slightly chillier months. 

  1. Keep it clean 

Keeping your pool clean should always be a high priority to help ensure your health and wellbeing, but this will be particularly important as the weather starts to turn. 

Falling leaves and other debris can quickly make your pool gross and unusable, and could interrupt the delicate balance of chemicals you need to keep your pool running smoothly. So, you should be sure to schedule in time to regularly scoop your pool for any floating debris, and to clean the water with the right treatments.

For the best results, invest in a swimming pool cover that can be easily and quickly removed when needed. This will help to keep your pool clean and ready for use all year round.

  1. Maintain the outside 

Falling leaves are not only a problem inside your pool; they can also make the area around the pool slippery and dangerous. Alongside clearing the pool itself of dirt and debris, you should schedule in time to sweep the area around the edge of the pool to help keep the general setting safe.

  1. Install a pool heater 

If your budget stretches to it, installing a pool heater can be a real game-changer that allows you to make the most of your pool all year round. This can be a high initial cost, but it will be worth it when the temperatures start to drop!

  1. Invest in scheduled lighting

Keeping the pool area safe also relies on having enough light, so you might consider investing in an upgrade here. Motion sensor lights can help to ensure you have plenty of light, and this can reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls.
