As a new pool owner, I am trying to determine how much money I could save by treating my salt water pool myself. My pool guy comes once a week and charges $55 per month which I think is very reasonable. He also offers pool expertise as a former pool builder whenever issues come up with anything to do with the pool. With my budget getting tighter I am trying to decide if I should try and do this myself next year and what the net savings would be. The pool is open year round and I use a solar cover in the winter to help the pool heater keep the pool warm.
