The Swimming Pool
The pool closes for winter.
We closed the pool this week, having had our last swim of the season. It has been our first year with the pool heater and what a difference it has made to our enjoyment of the pool. The heater has kept the pool at 28 degrees centigrade so we have been able to swim from April to October this year. A pool cleaning robot was purchased in August and that too made a significant improvement to the effort made sweeping and fishing on the bottom of the pool floor! The security cover is now closed over the pool and we look forward to opening it again next spring.
