That is what I heard from everyone, some people had pools and labored over them, some never had pools but heard horror stories. I knew I wanted a pool no matter the work, I love relaxing int he pool and to have something that will keep my kids happy AND their friends would be worth all the labor.
Well guess what? There is hardly any "labor". I literally spend 30-45 minutes per day. Of that, its a few minutes checking levels. I alternate every other day between brushing the walls and vacuuming. My pool is absolutely crystal clear and all the "labor" I actually enjoy.
When I vacuum, I get in the pool with mask and snorkel and cruise around cleaning up. How is that labor?? I rarely ever have to add much int he way of chemicals. Initially a lot of salt, some CYA and occasional dose of bleach or muriatic acid. Dosing takes no more than a couple minutes though.
I wonder what all these people who claimed how hard it was, I wonder what they were actually doing?!?!
