How much do you spend every year on your pool cleaning and maintenance? If not outsourced, normally, the cost of maintaining and repairing a small swimming pool is about 3–5 thousand per year, which may not be a big expense for some families ( of course, in high evaporation in places like Las Vegas, Nevada, and Texas, it absolutely will cost much more). The big pain point is the hard work it takes to maintain a swimming pool. With a retractable pool enclosure, you can maintain your pool easily and can use it year-round.
When summer came, you opened the tarpaulin and what you saw was a pool of green water like below.
Of course, this water is not swimmable and needs to be cleaned up. You can imagine how hard it is.
First, pour a few large buckets of bleach into the swimming pool.
The next day, when the water in the pool is clear, you need to use a long brush to brush the edge of the pool again to remove the moss.
Then start the water pump to remove the dirt that settles at the bottom of the pool until the water in this pool is crystal clear enough to swim in.
After that, you still need to start the pump frequently to filter the pool water to keep it clean. You also need to replenish water constantly considering it evaporates.
It’s too much trouble to maintain. That’s why some people see swimming pools as a burden when selling a house with a swimming pool. Some homeowners may use pool covers, which are better to maintain the pool and keep the pool water clean. Of course, it will also depend on which style of pool enclosures you use.
