This may seem liek a silly question but how much does it cost to have a medium sized pool put in? It's on our kids' wish list.

Default pool

When we moved to SC, we got a house with a pool. It costs about 300$ per year to maintain (chemicals). Other long term expenses are pumps which go out every 6 years or so (about 250$) and a liner (if you have a vinyl liner). The liner costs about 1,000 to replace but lasts for around 15 years. I hope that helps. I really love having a pool.

My brother works for a large pool company in Chas. and he says the price of an inground pool depends on many factors including size, type, materials used, etc. I was considering one, but the $20,000 - $40,000 price tag made me join a local pool instead.

SCBeaches is right. $20K should get you in ok.
The "drop in" pre-formed models work well down here, as there is no freeze problem. That should save you a bunch.

Don't forget about fencing the pool in for the little ones, the added cost of Homeowners liability insurance and the possible difficulty in selling your home in the future.

An inground pool is not exactly an asset for most people.

Sounds so typically like my hubby.. I had to agree to do ALL the cleaning and chemical analysis in order to get one. But I did get them to throw in a Polaris cleaner, so it wasn't too bad. And I was young and strong back then.. lol

Maybe that could be a selling point for people with kids.. OK, kids, YOU HAVE TO VAC, SKIM, and test the water chemicals DAILY... otherwise it's a no-go.
