Hello all. My wife Shelly and I decided when we build our retirement home we would add a pool to enjoy as we swim into this new phase of life. Construction underway. We are just now pricing the pool and my eyes have been opened. Pools are not cheap. We chose to go with a salt water Gunite pool. We are learning as we go and hope we don't make huge mistakes so that is how we found your site. One of your members messaged Shelly when we were learning the cost to maintain a pool is widely debated. Hope we can learn a bunch from the people here. Looking forward to all the great info.
