Do you have friends or family trying to talk you out of buying a swimming pool? Odds are, even if they have never owned a swimming pool, they are full of advice and reasons why you shouldn’t get one. Well, we are here to help dispel those myths about pool ownership. Here are 3 common myths about pool ownership and why they simply aren’t true.
“Pools Require Frequent Repairs”
This is probably one of the top reasons people will give you. They say that pools are constantly breaking down and need repairs to keep them going. The money that it costs simply doesn’t make it worth it.
The truth is that a quality pool put in by professionals like Tampa Bay Pools seldom need repairs if you keep up on the recommended maintenance routines and care properly for your pool. This doesn’t prevent all repairs. Sometimes mechanical systems break down. However, with regular, normal maintenance you’ll be able to detect potential problems before they become big.
“Pools Are Expensive to Operate”
There is a cost associated with owning a pool. Water, power for heaters and pumps, as well as chemicals will require some money. If you look at the cost of those items and compare it to the amount of time that your pool is available to enjoy, you may be surprised. Particularly if you compare it to other recreational things like a boat or an RV. The cost to operate a pool is much less than what you would pay to operate either of those things, simply because pools are just easier and more convenient to enjoy!
“Pools Take Too Much of Your Time”
Are you being told that you will spend every hour that you are not at work taking care of your pool? Many people, particularly those who have never owned a pool, assume that a pool requires a large amount of time for maintenance. That simply isn’t true.
Most pools only require an hour or two a week in order to keep them in great shape. Making sure that the chemicals are properly applied is one of the most important jobs, but it doesn’t take a large amount of your time.
If you compare your upkeep time to your enjoyment time, you will probably find that you spend much more time having fun with your pool than you do cleaning and maintaining it. In fact, as long as you don’t let things get out of hand, you won’t spend much time at all.
