Top Winter Season Pool Building Myths
This is not the time of year Arizona residents are thinking about swimming pools, but it should be. Since the summer months, when everyone wants to enjoy their pool every single day are known as “peak season”, the winter months, when many people are less inclined to swim are known as the “off season”. Let’s do some myth busting about winter swimming pool building and remodeling.
Myth: Custom Pool Building or Remodeling Can ‘t Be Done in Cold Weather
There are very few phases of construction that are affected by the weather. In fact, the only segments of swimming pool construction that may be affected by the weather are masonry, concrete and tile jobs. A reputable custom pool builder in Scottsdale will simply wait for a change in the weather, if necessary, before completing that phase.
Swimming Pool building and remodeling can be performed any time of the year. Having the work done during the winter is one of the best times to ensure your swimming pool will be ready in the spring. In addition, your swimming pool builder or remodeler should winterize the entire pool to leave you worry free. This leaves you more time to complete final touches, like landscaping, in time to open the pool in the spring.
Myth: I May as Well Wait until Spring to Deal with Pool Problems
Many people mistakenly think that they can wait until spring before taking care of pool problems, since they won’t be using it anyway. The longer a problem is left unrepaired the more damage it may do and the more expensive the repairs may become when you finally call a pool remodeling company in the spring. Many swimming pool owners are also under the impression that pool repair and pool remodeling can’t be done in cold weather. Once again, many repairs can be completed during the winter months, and a reputable pool remodeling company in Scottsdale will not jeopardize their reputation by doing work when it will be negatively affected by the weather.
Myth: If I Have My Pool Installed during the Winter It Won’t Need Any Care until Spring
While cold weather makes it more difficult for algae to survive, all it takes is a warm spell for it to thrive. You will need to test your water and maintain your chemicals during the winter, you just won’t have to do it as often and won’t need to use the same quantity of chemicals as you would in warmer weather. If your swimming pool water is not correctly balanced, improper pH can be corrosive to pipes and the algae can proliferate and damage your pool liner and filter.
