If you’re wondering if closing your pool is a good idea, you’re not alone. Many people’s mental images of California include palm trees, sandy beaches, warm weather, and endless summertime pool parties. Here in the Sacramento area we know that’s not necessarily true and that it can get pretty chilly in the winter months. Now that we’re well into fall, many people have already closed their swimming pools for the season. Seasonal changes in Northern California are often much more moderate than elsewhere in the United States. While folks in Southern California may use their swimming pool year-round, many homeowners in our service territory of Roseville, Rocklin, and Granite Bay, typically wonder if it’s truly necessary to take the time and effort to “winterize” their swimming pool.
