Having your own pool is more expensive than belonging to a private pool club. Having your own pool is more labor intensive than belonging to a private pool club.

And most importantly, more private than swimming with all the members of the pool club. If I am going to swim in a pool, (and it looks as though I am as we decided to buy the house after all and just came back from inspection,) it won't be at a swim club or public pool.

No screaming kids unless we've invited them, dog can hang out poolside with us so no guilt of leaving him behind YET AGAIN, no need for perfectly shaved legs. Added plus...skinny dipping. The soon to be ours yard is fabulously private.

Thanks again for all the info.
