When we retire and move my dream is to have a pool, finally. People have discouraged me saying it is a lot of work. I was thinking that having a pool service would be a solution to that, although an expensive one. Do you ladies who have a pool do the work yourselves or have help?

Greene, we did have a monthly service but my husband takes care of it now. Swimming pool stores have classes to teach you how to maintain the chemical balance, etc. Or...you might consider a salt water pool. They are all the rage now and nicer on your skin. Our pool cleans itself and maintenance really isn't difficult.

Thanks Dianne. I'd really hate to give up on my dream of having a pool.

greene,
We have an in-ground pool and have had it 20 plus years. WB takes
care of all the maintenance. We never had to have water brought in because he lets rainwater do the replenishing. A pool is
especially sweet this summer due to extra long, hot periods. But the time element is consuming; we're generally in there two hours every afternoon. I have an umbrella chair and float around, sometimes even fall asleep bouncing over the waves WB creates.

As far as maintenance is concerned, you can learn just about everything these days via the Internet.

Incidentally, WB installed this in-ground swimming pool himself,
not long after we moved here. And we've been in this location
for over 25 years.

WB sounds like a handy do-it-all guy! We had a pool when we lived in Miami and it got a lot of use. In that part of the world, people have huge screens enclosures over their pools to keep out leaves (and bugs!) At first, we maintained the pool ourselves but we eventually got a pool service. When we factored in the cost of chemicals, we decided it was worth it for us not to have to mess with it.

Hi Sandy,
WB can do anything, fix anything, and he's really, really smart.
We go to Florida every March and I've noticed those screen
enclosures around all the in-ground pools. How is Washington State to live in? I've often wondered about that.

I LOVE Washington state. The scenery is beautiful, the weather is mild, and I've made lots of good friends. The Seattle area is a Mecca for writers so there's lots of resources for my interest. Some people have trouble with the short dark days of winter, but I keep busy and that hasn't bothered me.

Thanks Sandy. I've always wanted to know, having lived on the east side of the country all my life. Glad you're happy!!!
When I think of Washington State, I don't, however, think of
mild weather. That surprised me!

Jabber, the weather west of the Cascade Mountains is mild. Eastern Washington has more temperature extremes. I think it's the Pacific current that keeps the Puget Sound area cooler in summer and not so freezing in winter. (Ooops. Sorry. It seems we've ventured away from the topic of swimming pools!
