Like an unwanted jack-in-the-box (Those things are just scary. Am I right?), surprise costs can pop up when you put in a pool.
The costs of pools can vary greatly by the type of pool you choose to put in, the extent of landscaping you are planning, patios and so on. There are also the costs of cleaning supplies and regular maintenance expenses. Additionally, there are costs associated with opening and closing the pool if you opt to do that (You don’t really have to in Florida.). You also need pumps, chemicals and a salt water or chlorine pool system, but that is not all.
Many people don’t think of the other surprise expenses that come with owning a pool. Did you know that your homeowner’s insurance increases, your taxes increase and you are required by law to install a fence around your yard/pool? Also, many homeowners don’t want a pool, so your buying pool can shrink if you are planning on selling your home.
However, if you enter the pool installation process with your eyes wide open, owning a pool can be a very enjoyable experience, and it can raise the value of your property.
