You guys sure are grumpy. Not sure who’s spending 80k on one. We spent just over half that on ours. But that was pre Covid also.

I put a1/2 gallon of muriatix acid in a week and that’s it. Have to add a $4 bag of salt every now and again too.

Just let us know when to show up! Been awhile but I bet I can still cannonball.

First house I grew up in we had an above ground pool. I enjoyed it.

Second house my parents got an inground pool installed but by that time I was old enough to take care of it. Wasn’t to bad.

Now I’m a homeowner and should have backed away from the house instead of buying because it has a inground pool. Turns out it’s not that fun working all day and then coming home and have to work more. Been in the house for almost 3 years and the First year we bought the house I opened it. These last two summers though I’ve kept the cover over it. I don’t want the damn headache or cost this year.

Could you learn more about it, get different equipment and try to make it less work? I don’t know much about them but usually there’s a way to make a situation better.

I spend maybe an hour a week with mine once all cleaned and set up. Went salt water was the way to go. Check chlorine and PH once a week. Adjust salt chlorinator on time if needed based on chlorine readings and add a little acid. Once a month I'll take a water sample to Leslie's so they can test everything else. Usually pretty good unless we get a lot of rain. Pool was already 88 degrees today...
