building a pool is cheap. maintaining it is expensive.

How big, long and deep the pool will be, really depends on how big, long and deep is the piece of available land you have, isn't it??

And husky is right; to have a clean, circulated/filtered, ph-balanced and levelled water, you need to spend at least $400 per month. This is not including the increase of utilities bills for the running filter.

Once you let down on such maintenance, eg algae starts to grow or the filter starts to choke, then it will cost even more to rectify all these.

Just a wacky thought...

but why do we need to have ph balance , chlorine water for swimming?

How come we cannot have a lap pool that replicates the function of a pond.

People swim in ponds too right?

So put some fish in to eat algae...

Then call it a "pond" instead. :)

But be careful make sure you are not breeding mosquitos.

The chemicals and water circulation in the pool will prevent the breeding of mosquitoes, algae, etc.

You want to swim amongst the fishes?? Then you will have a fish spa akin kenko's...hehe...

I jus had a quote from my ID, building a lap pool with length of 7.5m X 2.5m X 1.2m depth cost around 20k.

That's about right. I built a "mini pool" (5m x 3 m) for about 20k... Concreate pool with tiles, filters, jacuzzi pump, counter current pump.

Nothing's free in life. Your probably will end up paying higher maintenance contracts or a maintenance contract that is unfavourable or locks you in for a couple of years.

Has anyone done a pool using the contractor from the classified advertising $35K for the pool or have used any other reliable contractors to reccomend?

How about warranties against defects and also damage caused to property from soil movement. Do these contractors usually have insurance against these and will they assign cover to owners?
