Be sure to speak with local pool people who have multiple salt water pools

Waiting for the pool cos to open at 9AM to call, but looking for feedback from owners as well. Would really like to know how much of a PITA owners feel their pools are, as well as cost issues. Since we were chemist/chemE, I would think water testing would not be beyond our skills, but we also wish to travel. Would our pool own us? Would we need to have a pool person to maintain the pool while we were gone? Is it like owning a boat...great idea in theory but a complete money pit?

We are retired and would use the pool for exercise. The season is mid April-mid October as it is a heated pool.
