Hello Cherish,
Pool expenses vary by area. There is weekly maintenance needed that includes brushing the pool down and adding chemicals to balance the ph. If you have a heated pool then of course that adds to the expense.
Some areas where home owners use well water will have to truck-in water to initially fill the pool for the season so as not to drain water from their neighbors' wells.

Hope this is helpful.

This will be dependent on many things like size of pool, amount of sun it gets, is it heated, what chemicals does it use, what type of filter, does it have a solar blanket and some others. You should ask neighbors and friends in your area that have a pool and speak to some pool companies. They will be better able to answer these questions that us.

I have seen $100 per month;
that is without a pool service, and without a pool heater.

I cleaned my filters twice a year, just had to hose them off, and maintain my Ph.

Hope this helps.
