What’s not to love about the idea of having your own pool? Your own oasis in your backyard, the sound of water splashing, and the thought of endless dips on hot summer days. Owning a pool is definitely exciting, but it isn’t for everyone.
Consider excavation, building, obtaining permits, and landscaping costs. Get multiple estimates and set aside extra money for the unexpected.
Chemicals, utilities, and insurance are regular expenses. Make sure they are inexpensive.

Commitment to maintenance:
Choose if you’ll do the cleaning, water testing, and equipment upkeep yourself or whether you’ll pay experts.
In colder climates, prepare for winterization; in warmer climes, be aware of the need for year-round maintenance.
