We have never owned a house with a pool before and are seriously considering one with an inground pool. Vinyl liner at the end of it's age and a local pool co gave us a range of $3000-4500 to replace. Trying to get a handle on just how much of a PITA having a pool is, and how much money we can expect to flush down the filter every year. Also wondering if anyone has an idea of how much it would take to convert the pool from chlorine to salt. Does that require different systems, like the filter, heater or circulator? Clearly we are newbies on this, but I do believe the pool, which we did not set out searching for, would be an asset in this case.


hoping all you pool owners are enjoying this heat
