I'm just curious when the pools at apartment buildings and the public pools close for the season. Do they stay open any time before memorial day? And do they stay open after Labor Day? The reason I ask is because I'm moving to NC in September and I'm going to rent an apartment with a pool so I was really hoping I'd get to enjoy it a little bit before it closed for the season.

The "standard" rule of thumb is Memorial Day through Labor Day, but it really varies. You would need to call around to answer that question.

Depends on when they can get it inspected and how long they are willing to maintain. Last year my complex opened well before memorial day and stayed open until the end of October.

Our apartment pool "area" stayed open year 'round. I sat out by it last week just to get some fresh air and sun. Someone was in a swimsuit and enjoying the adjoining (to the pool) hot tub. I didn't see any signs saying to stay out of the water, so I don't know about the pool itself being "open".

I know a lot of them stay open into September at least on the weekends. It is certainly warm enough (usually) to swim up until October 1, but I guess they have to have their scheduling, etc done in advance and not at the whim of a warm or cold snap. Best to call the individual places if it's a big deal for you, as the only real "rule" is that Memorial Day to Labor Day you can be pretty certain they WILL be open.

I think that outdoor public pools' operating dates are mostly tied to the availability of seasonal lifeguards that are high school and college students. The indoor pools are year-round.

My landlord opens the pool in April and closes it when folks no longer come to swim because of cold weather.

Lifeguards are almost never used at apartment pools.

Speaking of, and not to threadjack, but anyone else have outrageously high pool fees? Our homeowners association has a community pool (hope valley farms), and they also have some tennis courts and that sort of thing. If I'm not mistaken, the fees to use this are about $100 a month. It may be a bit less than that, but not much. We obviously don't pay it, I just feel its incredibly expensive. Thank god we don't have kids yet.

Our HOA dues cover the pool and common facilities - they are not separate or optional.

My pool, gym, playground, and clubhouse are included in my very reasonable rent.
