If you work better with solid dates than temperature parameters, you can always follow the schedule that most public pools will set, meaning your pool season would generally last from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Even if there are warmer days past this time, you can save yourself the headache of not having an appointment set for pool closing.

As for temperature parameters, these come with a lot of variables regarding your pool closing and opening. If your pool is a heated pool, you can generally get away with closing it a few weeks later than normal closing times. However, if the temperatures are starting to dip below 45 degrees at night, now is the time to get your pool closing started. Furthermore, if your pool is consistently under a large shade tree or many trees, you will want to start pool closing before the leaves start to drop.
