Inground Pool Liner Company, LOOP-LOC, Discusses 4 Common Pool Ownership Misconceptions

PR Newswire

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Aug. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- People have different ideas of what it means to be a pool owner. The idea of spending your days lounging in crystal blue water, chilled drink in hand, is the epitome of summer relaxation. The other idea– high utility bills, sweaty maintenance, and a hefty price tag for only two or three months of summer enjoyment– is less positive. People have these different ideas, but what's the reality? Inground pool liner company, LOOP-LOC, discusses pool ownership, blowing away 5 common misconceptions that distort the realities of having this big bed of water in your backyard.

  1. Owning a pool is 24/7 relaxation: Many people view pool ownership as a vacation that never ends. The pool parties, lounge floats, and other add-ons like outdoor spas and pool slides give the impression of endless relaxation from the stress of life. However, the pool maintenance pre and post party can involve some time and work in order to keep your pool beautiful and sparkling clean.
  2. Pool maintenance is a hassle: Even though pools need to be taken care of, it's not a daily toil of baking in the hot sun, scrubbing your pool till it shines. In fact, you really only need to maintain your pool once or twice a week, for maybe an hour or so. Checking and balancing the chemical levels, vacuuming the floor, and skimming the top water are simple tasks to accomplish, and doing so on a strict schedule will keep the toiling maintenance people hate away. Consistency is key; pools are only hard to maintain if you're not good at maintaining them on time.
  3. A pool makes your utilities sky-high: The costs associated with running a pool are often overestimated in terms of utility costs. Older, inefficient pool systems used to take a toll on pool owner's bills, but the newest, best energy-saving models have cut this cost down significantly. Yes, you can expect to see increases, but only between $30 to $50 a month– not hundreds. LED lights, variable speed pumps, and low-energy heaters can maintain low levels of utility costs without much variation.
  4. Installing a pool is expensive: Perhaps the most daunting task of pool ownership, walking into a pool store to be faced with a bunch of different models, prices, and systems can quickly turn off a potential buyer. Sure, inground pools can be expensive, but there are numerous options for people who don't want to kill off all their savings, like financing the purchase. Carefully researching the type of pool you want, along with the features you really need, can bring down the upfront cost. Be smart about what you're really expecting to get out of your pool ownership.
