We started summer-izing the pool a couple weeks ago. That’s just what it sounds like: the opposite of winterizing. We brought the pump back from winter storage, set up the heater, dumped in gallons of chlorine, and replaced the winter cover with a solar blanket. Yesterday the water reached 80 degrees (matching the outdoor temp). It’s finally warm enough to go swimming!
Even when my shoulders aren’t up to swimming, I can jog laps around the pool – which I did for 90 minutes last night.
