I have always wanted to have my own pool to soak in after a hard day at work, but before I spent the money having one installed, I wanted to be sure that I understood every element of how a pool works. I thought that all of that information would help me decide what type of pool to get. Did I want an in-ground or above ground pool? I spent weeks researching the different maintenance requirements, the expenses associated with each type and what impact both options would have on my homeowners' insurance premiums. Planning on buying a pool? My blog will take some of the leg work out of your research.
