Halloween Pool Party: Good Idea This November

Tags :

We’ve talked a bit this Fall about whether you should Winterize your pool or not. You still have a few months to decide if you’re considering closing it down for the actual winter. Fall is here to stay for a couple months, so if you plan on winterizing for just Winter, we’d love to give you some ideas on how to use your pool and give tips on keeping it clean and working properly until you shut it down (if you do).

We’re a few days into October, and social media is filled with people getting ready for Halloween. “It’s the 4th day of Halloween,” some of your more Halloween obsessed friends may be saying. Let’s plan an amazing Halloween Pool  Party that people will be talking about for years, with a little help from your pool, hot tub , or Jacuzzi.

If you love Haunted houses, what better way to add some flare than to make your pool look like a foggy swamp (with dry ice or a fog machine) or throw in some sea monster decorations or fake corpses. You could even have people jumping in and out of the pool in interesting creepy costumes. Or you could drain your hot tub and have some fake limbs coming out of the cover, or have someone pop out while guests are being led past it! The possibilities are endless. In fact, even if you’ve closed your pool or hot tub for the year, you could incorporate many ideas into a haunted house.

If you’re not as fond of the jump scares, gore, and creepy costumes, you could throw a great Halloween Pool Party and invite people to take a dip in your pool or warm up in the Jacuzzi. Be careful with that, however. Someone may want to show up in a full costume and want to take a dip. We’d recommend you inform guests that it’s best if no one wearing a costume or makeup gets in the pool. Put up some Halloween decorations, get some pumpkin-colored beach balls or some spooky pool toys and go nuts.

As cool as this could look for Halloween, don’t let it stay green too long! Regular cleaning is a must.

No matter what you do this Halloween, be safe. If you’re involving your pool, hot tub, or Jacuzzi, be warned that you may want to have a thorough cleaning after the party to remove any candy wrappers, food debris, costume pieces, and other Halloween related trash, gunk, or junk. We offer weekly services as well as non-scheduled cleaning and maintenance to suit your needs.

We hope you have a wonderful Autumn. If you’re keeping your pool open, don’t neglect it. You may need to do just as much work in the Fall as you do in the Summer. Pool Daddy is here to answer questions and help you keep your pool clean and in the best working condition it can be in.

Swimming Pool For Fall Preparation?

Swimming Pool For Fall Preparation?Swimming Pool For Fall?

We’re in the last half of summer, so it might be time to start discussing fall preparations for your swimming pool. While some owners can keep their pool operating throughout the year, but there are a few things you want to keep in mind throughout the end of summer and through fall. Today we’ll talk about some things you may want to consider this season change.

-Early winterization: If you don’t plan on using your swimming pool or hot tub one school starts back because your kids are the main ones using it, getting a jump start on winterization may be a good idea. If it would go otherwise unused, keeping all of the pumps and filters running when the pool isn’t used but once or twice throughout the entire autumn, it may not be worth it. Contact us if you want to winterize your pool because it can be a pain to get every detail correct to prevent damage to your covers or pool itself.

  • Increase skimming: depending on the trees, bushes, and plants in your area, you may experience an increase in debris in your pool.
  • Chemicals: If the temperature drops as noticeable amount it may affect your chemical balancing. Lowered temperatures will mean you need less chlorine to keep the levels at a functioning point. You should still check it weekly, more so if the temperature drops or rises suddenly.
  • If the temperatures drop enough you may be able to decrease the amount of time you run your pumps. Let us know if you feel as if you can alter the time your pump runs and we’ll check it out.
  • Don’t ignore a cleaning schedule. It’s easy to forget to clean your swimming pool, including scrubbing the walls, checking the filters, emptying the baskets, and using a pool vacuum. Especially as your use decreases; if you go from using it daily to only using it on weekends you may lose track of time and when you last cleaned the pool. This is where weekly cleaning comes in handy.

Ask our technicians or a swimming pool specialist about any chemicals you may want to add in your slightly-off season. Some things you may want to consider or adjust may be minor, others may take a little more work, so call today and ask about seasonal changes you need to keep in mind for your swimming pool, hot tub, or Jacuzzi.

Whatever you do at the end of this summer, stay safe, consult your swimming pool technicians, and have fun. Don’t let cooler weather ruin your fun because you can still use your pool, especially in such warm a warm climate like that found in Arizona. We get so much sunshine, many swimming pool owners keep their pool open year round—with the help of our employees at Pool Daddy.
