Those of you with a pool.....

Do you do the maintenance yourself? or do you pay someone, if so how much do you pay a month?

  • We have an in-ground pool and we (my husband) do all the maintainence. We maintain it year round because we are in FL and have a longer swimming season. My husband spends about 20 minutes a week maintaining it and we probably end up spending $200/year on chemicals.

  • We also have an above ground pool and DH takes care of it. We do hire someone to open it up in the spring and close it down in the fall. Opening it costs a little over $200...can't remember how much to close it down.

  • We have an above ground and my dh does all the maintenance himself.  It really doesn't take too much time.
