I live in Wilmington, DE, and this weekend I checked the temperature of my pool water - still 78 degrees. Way too warm to close the pool. We've never had a pool before, and this is our first season. My husband is getting antsy, and things we should close the pool. He just told me today that "I know several people at work who have closed their pools already." He doesn't want falling leaves to get in it - even though it is my job to clean them out, and I said so. Or, what if we get an early snowstorm like last year? Just like a rainstorm I say. But he is adamant that we should be closing it because other people are. I've tried to explain to him that if the water is too warm algae could become a problem, but he just isn't hearing it. Can anyone offer me any advice here? I'm the one who takes care of the pool, given my microbiology and chemistry background, but he doesn't want to acquiesce to my expertise on this one. Help!
