Not a pool owner but a pool user...

In the winter we rent a Florida home with a pool that the owner has professionally maintained. In the past 11 years the pool heater and pump (twice) have been replaced.

Spring to fall we use our city's community facilities including indoor and outdoor pools for a senior couple monthly fee of $30. The only hassle is a 2 mile drive to the indoor facility or a less than a mile walk to the outdoor aquatic center.

My next door neighbor has an in-ground pool which he maintains except for winter close-up. I hear his mumbling...

Good luck with your choice.

George
