Top 10 Reasons to Fill In My Pool
REASON ONE: I remember a friend from a long time ago who had a pool, and I kid you not, to this day I still swear I saw the “Loch Ness Monster” swimming around in this thick green mossy muck that was once called a “swimming” pool. So getting to the point, don’t be the one hosting a cesspool for creatures of the deep. FILL IN YOUR POOL!
REASON TWO: My days are long and tiresome, I wake up at the crack of dawn and come home sometimes late in the evenings and that’s if there was no traffic. And to top it off, living in the Silicon Valley is a daunting task in it’s own and requires me to work close to sixty hours a week just to stay afloat on bills, mortgage and so forth…The last thing I want to do is come home from a ten hour day and head straight to the pool to ensure that my pool is clean and the pH levels are good to go.
What if I had a pool guy? I know for a fact that if I spent $100 per week for someone to check my filter and clean my pool, on average I would be spending close to $400 per month and a little over $5000 per year. Do you know what kind of vacation I could go on?
REASON THREE: Did I mention I really, really, really hate REPAIRS!!!!!!!!!
REASON FOUR: Can you believe at how much it costs now a day’s to have your pool retrofitted with the bigger, better, and faster energy saving components? A LOT! Not to mention when trying to get your pool up to date during a remodel. Plus, you now have to keep to building code which may, or may not, be a mission of money consumption in it’s own.
REASON FIVE: Selling your house? Well, I am reminded of a certain story. Having a pool can definitely have its perks when selling, as long as you don’t have creatures of the dark lurking in your pool Loch Ness Monster anyone?!
REASON SIX: I am still dreaming of having a full patio set with a really nice fire pit and room for more than 5 people in my backyard! Just saying..
REASON SEVEN: Liability? Enough Said!
REASON EIGHT: Heating my pool alone is costing me an arm and a leg and I still ask myself even with the cover on, WHY IS MY POOL STILL COLD????
REASON NINE: Did you know California looks like this?
REASON TEN: I am constantly paranoid every time I am away from my home, at home, and the what if’s?? Meaning kids, neighbor kids climbing my fence, and so forth and so on. Its a reality we all face as pool owners and personally speaking I wouldn’t want to live with the “what if’s” becoming a reality.
Yes, these ten things are a reality that we face when owning a pool responsibly, but this is the price we pay to having a wonderful summer in beautiful California.
