Can I put my pool table outside?
I have a regular (not specificly made to be outdoors) coin operated pool table that I would like to put outside. Can I without ruining it? I have seen outdoor fabric and heavy duty table covers but is that enough to protect it? What makes it a bigger concern is that we live in Phoenx AZ, so the sun is intense most of the year.
Good answer, Johnny...
I would not recommend it at all. Eventually, it will get ruined.
Rain isnt a huge concern there, but rain will ruin the fabric and possibly rot the wood. The sun will fade the fabric color and also possibly warp the wood. I would keep it under some shade if I were you.
Not a good idea kid the sun would riun it -Maybe under an awning but still not the best idea
Had one in a garage once lasted bout a year -Night air -Day heat got it
Well if its a coin operated barbox table, it cant be worth but so much. Sure I would put it outside. Just cover it with a huge tarp when not in use and weight the tarp down along the corners.
Some companies actually do make pool tables that are made to be outside and are completely safe for rain. Not sure how a changing climate (winter to summer) will affect the materials, but I'm sure it is made to withstand the elements. Just do a search for outdoor pool tables. Any other type of pool table not meant for outdoor use will be trashed in a few months.
the sun, rain & heat will definitely warp the table..but if you have your mind set on putting the thing outside, you should go to a home building store and buy a nice slab of wood (preferably plywood or fiberboard) to cover your table when you're not using it...also, in addition to that, make sure you have a heavy duty tarp (some stores sell the ones that are like aluminum foil, good to block out the heat/cold) and one of those tent things you use for barbecues, etc. cover the table with the tent (even when you're playing) to block out the sun & heat during play, then when you're done, cover the table with a tarp, put the wood on top of the tarp, then cover with another tarp...just so you'll be extra sure the table won't be weather damaged :)...this may help quite a bit...if you're in doubt still, go to a local billiards store and ask them what they think...and bring this advice up to him, see what he thinks :)
