Pool Maintenance Cost

by Pool Builders on 08-02-2010 in Articles

Having a swimming pool really bring happiness to you and to your loved ones, especially when the sun shines brightly and you can have some cold drinks next to it, and that would be so much fun, however a major  consideration is the pool maintenance cost. It appears to be too expensive that some would stop on their plan in building a swimming pool. Yet, if there's a way that you could reduce on your pool maintenance cost, would you still be against owning a swimming pool instead of just dreaming of one?

Pool maintenance cost depends on the size of your pool and the age of your pool.  Also make sure to have a pool cover. Though this looks a high order, most of it only requires you to be more aware as well as follow a regular cleaning and maintenance schedule.

I personally have known that in an average home pool owner they spend 50-150 US dollars for pool maintenance cost per month, now; the good news about this is that you could save almost 50% or more. Part of this pool maintenance cost is for you to always check the water of your pool weekly.  The pH of your pool's water is an important factor that it must be maintained and always be in its range. In order to maintain or increase the alkalinity of it, you will need some high price chemicals placed in it, but instead of purchasing these expensive chemicals, you can use a baking soda as a substitute and you could also save a lot of money through this.  Yet, make sure to add the right amount with it. If ever you still think that baking soda is still of an expensive for you then you can settle in getting a pool cover and use it to cover your swimming pool.  This could also cut your pool maintenance cost and I think it's really effective and efficient because it is a closed type.  You will just need a small amount of spending for this instead of the much expensive commonly used chemicals or even baking soda.  This is good also because those expensive chemicals could irritate your eyes and skin.  Thus, having less chemical on your swimming pool then will be more fun and less irritation.  Moreover, if you still use those expensive chemicals you should always monitor it especially in a hot weather.

If you are planning to really have one, here are some stuff I would like to share with you.  First, here are few precautions in setting up your swimming pool, you must always disconnect the circuit breaker before starting off any kind of disassembly on the filter, always check everything before turning the circuit breaker back on and always stay away from the filter in a few minutes when turning on the circuit breaker to avoid any scenarios.  Next always check the hose for leaks if you could notice a leak shut it down directly to avoid the filter to explode and could injure with someone and of course when assembling the filter of it always keep your children away from it and always explain to them why they shouldn't have to be near you or within the vicinity.  This may be very dangerous.  With this, you may also consider your hose monitoring to be part of your pool maintenance cost needs.
