LEGAL TIP OF THE WEEK
IS YOUR POOL OPEN YEAR-ROUND?
Happy Halloween! Be safe and careful out there tonight, and now may be the time to turn your attention to colder weather. Even though warmer temperatures lately may have caused homeowners with pools in their backyard to keep the pool open just a bit longer, the time to winterize is now (not to mention setting clocks back an hour this weekend). But when it comes time to shut down the swimming for the season, take care to properly winterize your pool. Doing so will help prevent damage over the cold weather months and can also help eliminate safety hazards. Just be sure you drain your pool properly and avoid using a neighborhood storm drain for water runoff. It is illegal to drain pool water into a public storm drain, due partly to the fact pool water may contain chlorine. Help keep your neighborhood safe and your pool free from damage by closing it down properly and helping to make sure your friends and neighbors do the same.
