1. Get Seasonal

You’ve used and loved your pool all summer, so take the time this fall to clean your decking both from the falling leaves and with a nice scrub. Then take some time to update your poolside with some seasonal accent pieces. Consider adding a beautiful fall-themed rug, accent pillows for your chairs or some extra blankets in the season’s colors to keep you warm during those crisp fall evenings.

Consider also adding a pop of color to your poolside by mixing in some beautiful flowers in the season’s hottest colors: deep reds, vibrant oranges, and sunny yellows. You can even add in some unique accent pieces like scarecrows, straw hay bales, lanterns and pumpkins to bring it all together!

2. Warm It Up

If your pool isn’t heated, it may be worthwhile to look at investing in a pool heater. This will allow you to enjoy your pool into the fall months and depending on where you live, potentially year-round! When paired with automation, you pool can be ready for you to swim or relax in every day after work – what’s not to love about that?

Pentair has several energy-efficient and innovative heating options available to choose from. Just make sure to work with a local pool professional to determine what heating method is best for your pool.

3. Party Outside

Just because the summer months are over doesn’t mean you have to do away with your love for grilling – so dust off that grill cover and break out the spatula! There are countless delicious seasonal recipes to try now that autumn is in full swing. Make grilled apples then serve them with vanilla ice cream, grilled sweet potato baba ghanoush or some super yummy cider-grilled veggies. If you’re the adventurous type, you could even try your hand at grilling your turkey this Thanksgiving!

There’s no better way to warm up while enjoying time in the crisp autumn air than a cocktail! There are countless seasonal recipes, like an apple butter old fashioned, a pumpkin spice White Russian or a pumpkin spice Moscow Mule. So what are you waiting for? Invite your friends over and with a little creativity, you’ll be in love with your pool again this fall in no time.
