There's nothing like a refreshing dip in the pool on an especially hot day. The water is cool, and you can relax with your friends or family while being cooled off by its surface. You might not want to spend all of your time cleaning up after it though - some people find themselves spending as much $3-5K per year just for basic upkeep!
It takes much more than just adding chlorine to keep your pool pristine- in fact, this only lasts about two hours! Per week is the minimum advised for most pools; each one can require circulation, cleaning chemicals (depending on what type of filter you have), and an occasional touch up with pH balance or algaecide treatment. A dirty pool will look cloudy at best- but by running circulate pumps at least 10-12 hours a day while using appropriate filters during these times.
A swimming pool can be an awesome addition to almost every homeowner’s property – especially if they live in warmer climates. The average cost of installing one is about $48K with maintenance costs running anywhere from $4-6K on the side; while having a pool can increase your home's value and desire.
You should monitor your chlorine and pH levels at least once a week, or every day if your pool is in high use. Total alkalinity and calcium hardness levels can be monitored less frequently.
