Hoping there are some people who will help some of us make the decision to build an in-ground pool. I would especially like to hear from people on a limited budget in areas where the swim season is short. I can understand building a pool in Texas, Arizona, California, Florida and other warmer climates.
When you decided on in-ground, did you already have experience with an above ground?
Do other homes in your neighborhood have pools?
Did you put an auto-cover on? Is it a top track or integrated?
If you have a top track, do you have issues with Ice damage to the track?
How deep and how big is your pool?
Steel or polymer walls?
Any other concerns, do-overs for those living in cold climates?
