We live near Palm Springs, so we use our pool til the end of September. It just depends on where you live.

We have one of those from Walmart too.  It's not the one that you blow the top ring up on it's the other blue ones with the white posts.  We put ours up in late May and take it down in early Sept.

 We live in Texas so we dont. The kids are in it year round. I would think though that you should put it up in sept.

Once it is too chilly to swim. End of August in Minnesota would be a great time to put it away

We put ours up once it's too cold for swimming. Here in MN that's around the end of August to mid September.

We live on the Kansas, Oklahoma border and we are putting ours up in about three weeks.

We live in Texas and could no way swim year round.  They can use it usually from May - mid October.  I would take it down when they complain it is too cold to swim.  My sister has the pool you have though and they leave it up all year.  I think it comes with instructions on how to leave it up in the winter.

We close it when we don't want to swim anymore.  Public pools are open Memorial to Labor Day though, you could use that as a guide.
