My wife and I are undecided on whether to add a pool in our house. We have been reading the topics on pool discussion in the forum andlike to seek the advise of actual pool owners currently:

1) What is the actual maintenance cost monthly

2) What is the actual water+ electricity cost monthly

3) Any major maintenance(pump change etc) for 5 years??

Thanks for all the feedback!

I do not have a lap pool but I know someone who installed a lap pool.

(1) The maintenance cost can be covered by a maintenance contract and the amount varies, starting from about $200 per month for some fairly decent work.

(2) The actual water + electricity cost monthly is not known because the utitlities bill lump everything together and the water can really be re-cycled. Hence, water bill not too high and this is the same for electrical bill.

(3) So far, the pump and the filtration system that he had works fine. No major problem.

If you really want a lap pool, go get it. The only thing that my friend had a problem with is the size of the pool. It is too small for real swimming but good for children to play. After a while, nobody use the pool and it became a white elephant. If you think you will use the pool very regularly and the size meets your needs, than go ahead and install one. I think it cost between $25K to $35K for a small one with some landscaping thrown in.
