Hidden Costs of Pools

Hidden Costs of Pools

To avoid surprises later, learn all about the hidden costs that come with pools.

If you’re looking into buying a pool, you should know that the installation isn’t the only expense you’ll make. There will be repairs to make, and you’ll have to undergo maintenance to keep everything in good shape. Some pools are heated, and it costs money to keep the water warm. These are just some of the extra costs that come with pools, but there are other expenses that may sneak up on you if you don’t know about them ahead of time. It’s important to understand every expense before investing in something like a pool. To avoid surprises later, learn all about the hidden costs that come with pools.

Retaining Walls

When people think of retaining walls, they may think about standard lawn care, keeping their lawn from getting overflown with water. However, they have their uses around pools as well. Your yard has to be able to be properly drained, and you also want your pool to be stable. Retaining walls are useful in both of these aspects.

Dirt Hauling

While pools are being constructed, a lot of dirt gets brought out of the ground, and honestly, to say it’s a lot may still be an understatement. You can’t leave such a large sum of dirt piled up right outside your house, so you’ll have to get it hauled away. Keep in mind, however, that dirt hauling can get expensive. Just be sure to ask if dirt hauling is factored into the final cost of the project before you begin your pool installation.

Electrical Costs

Some parts of people’s pools will require electricity to power them. Depending on how many items need power, the electrical costs associated with your pool will vary. You may want a salt chlorine generator, for example. Or, perhaps, you want a heat pump to keep your water warm. Maybe you want your pool to have lighting for nighttime swims.

Just like with any other added expense, make sure that it gets factored into the installation ahead of time, so surprises don’t pop up later.
