2019 Forecast: How to Prepare Your Backyard and Pool for the New Year!

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, mid-February will be COLD, especially in the following zones: Northeast/New England, Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, Midwest, and Southeast. If you’re lacking a pool heater, make sure you take the proper steps to winterize your pool.

With this harsher winter, Spring could arrive a bit late this year! Mid-March could be stormy for the country, bringing snow, sleet, and/or rain as well as strong and gusty winds to many areas. In particular, the Farmer’s Almanac says to watch for March 20-23 for a potent East Coast storm that could deliver a wide variety of wintry precipitation just as we are making the transition from winter to spring. We recommend a pool heater and/or a solar cover on your pool to keep it warm until the temperatures start rising back up! Stop by our store to learn more.
