Pools are like sports cars, everyone wants one at some point. The question is will you ever want another one again. I went through the pool crazy for 11 years and I don't miss it much at all. Extra expense to do chemicals, back washing, pool heat expense, and neighbors kids over all the time. The only time I got in it much was to clean it. Each to his own, but I don't miss it.

I think that most people would enjoy an in-ground pool. The only disadvantage is the extra maintenance requirements. Like you said, though, pools are pretty easy to keep up with these days. Some families with small children might be concerned about the safety hazards.

Yes! I would love a pool! I'd rather not maintain one though.

Hi:) Inground pools now, are much easier to maintain, then they were years ago. You can even hire a servicing company to come by. The above ground pools are still a bit of a challenge. Thanks for the comment!
