We're moving into a new house with a pool and I'm wondering. What is the monthly cost on upkeep for your pool? How much do you spend on supplies? Do you have a service or do you do it yourself?

We live in Tucson and have a medium sized in ground pool. We pay a service to do our chemicals because my grandson has eczema and we want them to be as good as possible (I don't want to be responsible if they aren't). The cost for the service is $35 a month and they provide all chemicals. That's it for basic costs. The pump/filter system is made so you can take it apart yourself and take it to a pool store to be diagnosed and you can replace just part of the system. We vacuum the pool ourselves about once a week. You can buy auto vacuums or hire someone to come and vacuum. You have to clean the filter about once a week and it's heavy. I can't pick it up. You just hose it off and put it back in. If you have a service that vacuumes they do this too. It's not hard, it's kind of fun.
