Typical maintenance costs incurred by pool owners include pool cleaning, chemicals, chlorination and heating costs. Other pool maintenance costs may include repair costs and maintenance of additional features such as water fountains and slides.
Pool maintenance costs vary with respect to the size of the pool, frequency of use, type of liners in the pool (e.g., fiberglass, gunite or vinyl) and age of the pool. A pool that has been in use for a couple of years is likely to have higher maintenance costs than a newly built pool. Additionally, year-round use of the pool may create more wear and tear and thus require more regular extensive maintenance.
