If you don’t have a pool heater now might be the time...

When the temperature starts to drop and winter sets in, most people pack up their pool gear and wait for the warmer weather to return. But did you know that you can actually continue to enjoy your pool all year long, even in the colder months? It's true! With a little bit of preparation, you can keep your swimming pool warm enough to enjoy even when the mercury dips. Here's everything you need to know about using your pool heater to warm up your pool during winter.

1. Set the Temperature. The first step is to set the temperature on your pool heater. Most pool heaters have an upper limit of around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, so keep that in mind as you adjust the temperature. You'll also want to factor in the outside air temperature; if it's already cold outside, it will take longer and use more energy to heat up your pool.

2. Cover Your Pool. Once you've set the temperature on your heater, it's time to cover your pool. This is important because it will trap heat in and prevent heat from escaping. There are a variety of different types of covers available, so be sure to choose one that fits your needs and budget.

3. Install a Solar Blanket. In addition to a standard cover, you may also want to install a solar blanket. Solar blankets are made of a special material that helps trap heat and prevent evaporation. They're easy to install and can make a big difference in how well your pool retains heat.

4. Monitor the Temperature Regularly. Once you've covered your pool and turned on the heater, it's important to monitor the temperature regularly. This will help you catch any problems early on and make adjustments as needed. Remember, it takes time for a pool heater to do its job; be patient and don't expect miracles overnight!
