One of the great advantages of living in Houston is that the weather here tends to be milder and more cooperative than states further up north. December in some place like Minneapolis, Minnesota can be an ordeal in snowstorms, blocked roads, and endless mornings spent shoveling sidewalks clear, or pushing snow-blowers around.
This also means that swimming pools in Houston are a lot more practical. They don’t need to be covered or drained during the winter months. You can actually enjoy full use of your pool all throughout the year. However, that also means that the constant use can take a toll on a pool after many years of faithful service. As with anything like a car, or even your own home, as time passes, and a pool gets older, the look that was once modern starts looking dated, or individual components of the pool, such as the plaster, may start to fall into disrepair.
The Season Of Work
The winter season, even though it sports much milder weather for Texans, still means lower temperatures compared to summer. So for many, the holiday and winter season is a time of the year when the swimming pool sees a bit less use than the hot days of summer, when a dip is a perfect solution.
Because of this, we’d advise anyone thinking of getting major work done to swimming pools in Houston to think about now—and the next three months—as a good time to look at starting that work. It’s important to keep pools in good condition, especially if something needs repair. And that work is better done during a lull in pool activity. The last thing you want is to invite friends and family over with promises of use of the pool for a party, only to find, when you finally look at your pool, that something needs work, such as the plaster.
