We're pool owners and sometimes I hate it/sometimes I love it. Love it in the Summer when you can jump in after mowing the lawn to cool off immediately. Hate it when I've let things go too long and have to perform what I like to call a "recovery."

It's also very pretty to look at on a stinking hot day with the blue water that just beckons you to jump in!

Having owned a pool for 11 years I have reluctantly become somewhat of an expert on tearing down the filter and keeping the pool maintained.

I agree regarding the love/hate relationship. It blew my mind when I calculated the cost per swim. In the end, the pool makes my wife happy -- enough said. Let's also not forgot the psychological benefit of seeing blue water out your window during those hot, dry months.
