    Lots of variables. Size, climate, type of filter, how much the kids piss in it. All that.

    Mine stays open year round so no closing/opening costs. I spend an average of 18 bucks per month on liquid chlorine and tabs.

    It was here when we bought the house so I don't know how much extra I am paying in electric for the filter.

    Pool pump can easily cost a ton in electric costs ... get a variable speed pump if you don't have one already.

    About $35k per year. I'm rich and my pool is huge.

    Ok just wondering.
    Looking at a house that has a pool.
    I know a pool guy so I might could get a discount on some stuff.

    75. per month includes chlorine, cleaning filter, scrubbing the edges, skimming, vacuuming the bottom etc. If I could change it, I'd rather not have a pool.. too much of a pain in the ass.

    Why do Mexicans wear their shirts when they go swimming?

    As long as you put a few man hours per month vacuuming and skimming, it really shouldn't cost all that much to keep it clear.
