For the last few days, the weather has been pretty cool and rainy. That’s not helping the pool very much. Over the last few weeks, it has been in the 80s and 90s outside, and the pool was around 76 degrees. That’s not too bad when you consider that I had to backwash it a lot and had to keep adding cold hose water to fill it back up.
Yesterday when I checked the temperature in the pool, it was about 71 degrees. I haven’t checked it today, but with the constant rain and temps around 58 degrees, I can only imagine what it is now. I don’t think I want to look.
The pool is finally starting to clear up. I figured it would take a little longer this year, as it wasn’t opened last year and there was a lot more to clean up. It turned blue quickly, but it hasn’t cleared up the cloudiness quite yet. I can see the shallow end bottom and halfway down to the deep end, so it wont be long now.
One good thing about the rain is that it is filling up the pool and I don’t have to run the hose into it and waste the water. It’s also watering my garden. Two birds, one stone I guess.
My question is this – Why did we get Summer weather in Spring, and now that Summer is about to begin, we are getting Spring weather?
