How much do you pay your pool guy?

If you have a pool, do you pay someone to maintain it? If so, how much does it cost?

Hubby and I are looking at a house with a pool and are trying to factor in the cost of maintaining it.

Thanks!

  • We have an above ground pool that I care for. I like doing it though. I don't let the kids out in the yard when I am cleaning it....and the process always entails me on a raft with a cocktail at the end!

    Call around and check out the BBB. Also ask friends in your area that have pools. I am sure that different markets get different rates. Around here there is a pool at every house and pool services are year round ventures. I am sure in different areas it is seasonal and may call for different rates.

  • LOL! thanks, Ladies!

    MrsD - we had a blow-up ring pool a couple of summers ago. DH paid a FORTUNE to have part of the yard levelled for it, then he didn't take care of it. I refuse to accept the answer, "i'll take care of it." from him about anything anymore.
