When you bought your dream home 15 or 20 years ago, it was in vogue to have a swiping pool in your back yard. But now after the kids have all grown up and gone off to college the pool is hardly used.
You don’t have time for a dip in the pool, and then there are the times that you have to fix leaks and damages to it. Then there is the wear and tear over the years.
As you sit and look at your pool did you know that it costs you money to maintain it? The filtration system, the chemicals you need and then cleaning equipment all piles up. An average sized pool nets around 2000 dollars in maintenance yearly.
Times have changed, and now most people don’t look for a pool when they are buying a house. What should you do with your pool then? Well, it may be a good option to remove your pool. It will work out to be much cheaper for you in the long run. You will also have extra space on your property should you want to make an extension to your house or have a nice grass lawn where you and your kids and even grandkids can play.
Removing a pool is not a job to be taken lightly. It is not something you and your buddies can get together to do over the weekend. Trying to
undertake a task like that could cause accidents and end up costing you money.
You need to decide if you want to save money in the long term or keep spending on something you do not make use of. Think if all the other things you can do with the savings from getting your pool removed.
