I love swimming so much, I put away money each week for three years just so I could afford building an in-ground swimming pool in our backyard.
I didn’t want 1 of those small recreational pools at all, I wanted a pool deep enough for a diving board and wide enough to get some real work outs in.
Who knew there were so many bizarre types of pools 1 could have out there, from fiberglass, vinyl, concrete and plastic, all the way to the more easy styled plungers… Then there’s freshwater, saltwater or mineral water systems to take into consideration which all have their own pros and cons to them. I even went down a rabbit hole about bizarre types of furnaces for pools, because I’m not the greatest fan of cold water. There is no shortage of so-called Heating, Ventilation & A/C professionals who want to repair our heating method and most of them don’t specialize in the pool Heating, Ventilation & A/C method itself which is such a pain, then so multiple Heating, Ventilation & A/C companies know a little about a variety of things but it’s correctly hard to find a Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional or local business that deals identifiably with pools. I had to search through tons of blogs before I found our local service provider who knew exactly what they were doing. I haven’t regretted getting a pool for a minute, but finding reliable homeowner solutions is no breeze in the park. I guess I’m lucky because I can at least kneel in our heated jacuzzi while I browse through local repair providers. I’m also glad to say that I’ve upgraded even further by fully automating our pool’s heating method with a smart thermostat.
