Falling Leaves Do Not Equal Fall Fun!

Here on the Space Coast of Florida, we don’t necessarily experience much in the way of fall weather.  We don’t have a major seasonal change like some other states in which most of the leaves change to shades of yellow, orange, and brown.  In Florida, we consider anything brown to be dead.  It can be a bit confusing for us as we live in an area that is lush and green throughout the year, regardless of the season!  Trees without leaves?  What is this phenomenon of which they speak?  Most of our trees are happy and green all year!


But, there are a few trees that do lose their leaves.  Even trees that may not generally lose all their foliage will shed dead leaves, and when tropical-storm-force winds blow through, all trees are susceptible to leaf loss.  When this occurs, our pools often pay the price.


Keeping Yard Debris At Bay

Yard debris is one of the major effects of these strong winds.  If your pool is uncovered, then it may very well be a disaster after such a weather system comes through our area.  It is tiring work to get two inches or more of leaves off the bottom of your pool.  Not having trees doesn’t preclude you from this cleanup, either.  Unlike when a tree simply drops its leaves, leaves don’t stay in their own yards when the wind is present.  The oak leaves from next door will happily make a lovely, thick coating at the bottom of your pool, right where they DON’T belong!


Pool Cover

But, at Tripod Aluminum, we have good news for you!  This awful leaf cleanup can be a thing of the past for you if you will just give us a call.  No, we are not a pool cleaning company.  We build beautiful pool enclosures!  While a pool cover can definitely help to keep debris out of your pool, it cannot provide you with a beautiful area to enjoy your pool without bugs.  Our beautiful pool enclosures do!


Screen Enclosures

We build beautiful aluminum screen enclosures from small balconies in Melbourne to large, beautiful pool enclosures in Merritt Island, providing you with great, usable outdoor spaces.  How many beautiful evenings have you wished you could hang out in your backyard, but the thought of spending the night awake scratching at twenty mosquito bites has kept you inside instead?  Wouldn’t you love to hang out in the backyard, invite some friends over to play games at the patio table, and end the night bite-free?  Now you can!  The cooler weather is coming soon, and now is the perfect time to get that screen enclosure built, so that you can enjoy those cool, comfortable evenings!


Tripod Aluminum is located in Melbourne, FL where we have been in business for over twenty years.  We have an on-site showroom where you can see all the great products that we offer and ask questions from our on-site professionals. Call or come by today.  We look forward to doing business with you!
