Has anyone else done a cost comparison?? I was stunned!!!
I use MS Money to track finances and I break down pool expenses by parts/repairs/improvements (like my Intermatic Pool Timer) and chemicals. Just ran reports for pool chemical spending since 2009.
2009 - $529.18 (pool store only)
2010 - $508.81 (pool store only)
2011 - $599.54 (pool store only)
2012 - $553.63 (pool store only)
2013 - $511.58 (switched to TFPC in mid-July)
2014 - $260.87 (Not a typo!!)
2015 - $141.89 (so far, including the TF Test Kit refill!)
We typically have our pool open April-October. Never really saw it in black and white, but that's about half!
