Common Misconceptions of Pool Ownership | Sunshine Fun

Don’t reconsider having your Bryan College Station pool installed because of these common pool ownership misconceptions!

If you are thinking of purchasing a swimming pool, many of your friends and family will come forward with some sage advice on what it is like to have a one, even if they have never owned a pool themselves. While they are trying to be helpful, they often are just perpetuating several common myths about pool ownership. Here are some of the most common misconceptions about owning a Bryan College Station pool.

Swimming Pools Increase Your Energy Bills by a Large Amount

While it is true that it takes energy to run the lights, heaters and pumps for your swimming pool, you may be surprised at how little these affect your energy bills. While they will increase, the cost is rather low when you think about how much time your pool is available for you to enjoy. The cost for running a swimming pool is much less than the cost it takes to own a boat or an RV.

Swimming Pools Can Be Dangerous

Swimming pools are there for everyone to enjoy. If used improperly they can be dangerous, as can most things you have in your home. Start by setting some ground rules that everyone who swims in your pool must follow. Be sure to enforce those rules for everyone who swims, and don’t tolerate them being broken. Always make sure that children are supervised while they are swimming and that those who can’t swim stay out of deep water. Swimming pools are great fun and are only dangerous if they are misused.

You Spend All of Your Time Maintaining Your Swimming Pool

On the average you can expect maintain your swimming pool to take up an hour or two of your time each week. This time is spent making sure the water chemistry is correct as well as cleaning and maintaining the mechanical systems of your pool.

Of course, if you don’t spend time each week maintaining your pool, you will eventually have to spend more and more time to get it back into good operating condition. If you set aside a small amount of time each week or each day to keep the pool up to date, then you will find yourself spending more time swimming than you do working on the pool.

Pools Are Always Breaking and in Need of Repair

Any item is going to break if it isn’t of good quality. That is why you need to make sure that when you choose a contractor to build your swimming pool, you pick someone who has years of experience and knows what they are doing. Repairs start with the install. A quality pool will last you for many years and only need minimal repairs.
