As Summer winds down and the hottest dog days of summer are behind us it is time to start thinking of the fall. By the way, do you know why they are called the dog days of summer? They were historically the period following the heliacal rising of the star system Sirius (the Dogs stars), which Hellenistic, or Greek astrology connected with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs, and bad luck.
Your pool can still be a great place for family fun into the fall, even though the evenings are cooler, some folks are keeping the pool open long past Labor day, and with kids and parents staying home more due to Covid-19, it may be time to throw out the old notion of closing up the pool in early September.
But what if you don’t have a pool? Well, good news. Now is a great time to install your new pool! Prices are best in the fall, your back yard will have time to regrow, the landscape will fill in by swimming season and there are some great financing options available. Your new pool will be filled with crystal clear water and ready for that first hot day of Spring 2021 to enjoy with family and friends!
And don’t forget the tax benefit. Your pool is not only a major purchase, it is also considered a home improvement which can be claimed on your taxes.
