My pool is always open unless it's storming or high winds.

My official pool is at the Grandview :rofl:

Here is the Hudson Valley NY my coworkers with pools usually open on Memorial Day or maybe the wknd before.

Don't have a pool so don't have this dilemma.

Wish I could afford one and one that could be heated outdoors year round.

I have a cheap husband, so our pool is not heated, and although it looks the same year round, we probably don't use it any more than someone in a cold region, because the water isn't warm enough.

I won't put my toe in it unless it is at least 75 degrees! :D

Really? In California? I would think you would be in it constantly- but I am with you- 75 is good; 82 even better!

BTW- really nice pool you have.

Right now the water is 52 degrees, and the air temperature is 57 degrees - it is really deceiving.

Yup, I remember seawater being unbearable, too.

Coastal FL so we don't close our pool, but we only use it from May-Oct. usually. It still gets cleaned/maintained weekly by the pool service though.

I am slowly acclimating myself to the cool - make that freezing-lake waters in northern New Hampshire when we are on vacation there.I think I am going to buy myself a float tube or something for this summer to make it easier.

But I absolutely love our outdoor heated pool at Smuggs in all seasons.

My hot tub is 102, even when ambient air temp is minus 10F. No pool though.

Sometimes I take a hot shower and imagine it's July or August in Vancouver. There's like, 2 weeks in there where it might be warm enough to be worthwhile to inflate the little jobby I dunk my kids into. You fill it in the morning and hope that it's tepid by late afternoon. That's life north of the 49th parallel, lol

I don't go in my pool until the water temp is 86 which is usually sometime in May and lasts until October. My son in law is happy with 76 so he starts using it in April. We have solar heating for the pool which helps a lot.

We have a spill over spa attached to the pool that gets used all year. We can heat the spa with our pool gas heater without it costing an arm and a leg.

I have a solar heater that extends the pool season to about 10 months a year but its always ready and when its too cold for the pool the boat is nice

We keep ours open year round and have a pool service weekly. That said, I've only been in it three times in four years!

I can't stay in a hot tub too long. I do have a steam shower, though. I like that with my essential oils.
