swimming pools: love 'em or hate 'em?

Covered the pool today and finished by making a wish that it would vanish before next summer. I have come to believe that pools are like boats...better to have friends that own one than to own one yourself.

I'd much rather own a boat than have a friend that owns one, vice versa for pools.

You can always ask me a pool related question.

Been doing service work as a side thing for 12 yrs. I can always give an informed opinion.

I enjoy having my own pool and my own boat and the entertaining I can do with both.

Since I switched to a saltwater/chlorine generator things have eased up a bit, but still more trouble than it's worth. Now that our kids are mostly out of the house, it just sits there sucking electricity. Side question...why do Polaris cleaners cost so much?

Typical suburban pool: Not worth the trouble. Pool you can swim laps in: Awesome.

so how much does it cost to maintain a salt water pool? I've always wanted one and plan on getting one when I'm older

What the frick? Maintaining a boat is not hard. Why the shite would you think its better to have a friend with one than own your own? That's just crazy. Boats are fricking awesome.

Agree.. I once had a house with a pool and it was the biggest hassle and pain in the arse I have ever had to deal wit..

In Florida, we Screen our pools like this:

and never really have to cover them... but it was still a pain in the arse and an expense that I just got sick of dealing with

Growing up in Kentucky I had one relative with a pool. We went over during the summer and had swim parties. I love Pools, they however ended up filling it in with concrete and it no longer exist.

Having a pool is like anything else, its gonna take time and money.
