The winter solstice just passed. Even here in Texas, that probably means it’s unpleasantly chilly outside every other week. It’s a far cry from the blistering summer days when nothing sounds better than relaxing outside in a pool. But that means now is the best time to start thinking about installing that pool you wanted just a few months ago. Winter is the perfect time for making pool repairs or getting started on pool construction to your backyard winter wonderland.
- You’ll have a brand new inground pool just in time for spring. Inground pools can take time to install, especially with the rough Central Texas soil. Start your project in the winter so you have plenty of time to pick the design you want, have the landscape really take root, and anticipate the refreshing pool you’ll have in your backyard when that blistering weather returns.
- You can add elements to your backyard retreat that are enjoyable year-round. Even if the weather is a bit too chilly for a pool, that just means it’s the perfect weather to enjoy a backyard fireplace or fire pit. Depending on the size and style you have in mind, these features can be installed quickly so you and your family can enjoy an outdoor cup of warm cocoa around the fire.
- You can more easily fix the damage and add features. No one wants to have to drain their pool for a lengthy repair project in the middle of winter. So if you noticed cracks or leaks, or you want to add new features to your pool, schedule them for winter. Our specialists can easily assess and repair the damage without any interruption to your pool schedule.
In winter, a swimming pool might be the furthest thing from your mind. But that just makes it the best time to add features, make repairs, and really consider installing a new pool.
