Top 5 Misconceptions About Owning a Pool

misconceptions about owning a pool

Everyone loves to swim and have a place to cool off during those hot summer days, but many people shy away from owning a pool. Here you will find several misconceptions about owning a pool which simply are not true and should not scare you away from having your dream pool built. With these popular myths about pool ownership debunked, you can look forward to splashing your way through this next summer.

  1. The Construction Process is Long

You might have heard horror stories about pools taking forever to be built, but the truth is, the construction process usually takes only a number of weeks. If you think about everything that goes into building a pool, a few weeks really isn’t that long at all. With planning, digging, and installing all the different parts of the pool, your pool will seem to be built in no time.

  1. Maintenance is Extensive

Yes, pools do require a minimum level of maintenance in order to keep things clean and running properly, but it certainly is not as time consuming as some would lead you to believe. Like any other aspects of homeownership, pool maintenance is important for keeping that space looking like new. Even if you dedicate just a few minutes of your day to care for your pool, this can save you from having to make costly repairs in the long-run.

  1. Pools Are Expensive

One of the biggest misconceptions about owning a pool is that they are expensive. While pools are an investment, there are many payment options you can choose from in order to afford the pool of your dreams. Additionally, if you want to look at it from a different perspective, pools can add to the value of your home. So when it is time for you to move, you can possibly list your home for a higher asking price, increasing the possibility of a higher return on investment (ROI).

  1. Utility Bills Increase

When you get an efficient pool and maintain it properly, your utility bills should not increase significantly. You might see a minor increase, but not any more so than the usual fluctuations that can come with your regular billing. Consult your pool construction company about how you can make your pool run at its optimum efficiency level in order to save as much as possible on your utility bills.

  1. There’s Too Much Repair Work Involved

Repair work is necessary when there has been structural damage to your pool, or if the pool was built poorly in the first place. However, when you properly maintain the pool and have your pool service team make regular visits to ensure all is running well, you don’t have to worry about repair work.

Now, if you want to have your pool updated, that is a different story. These aren’t necessarily repairs, but updating your pool can happen as often as you want it too. You can change out the fixtures and the natural materials surrounding your pool to give it the occasional facelift.
