Hello - I'm curious as to what a monthly cost would be to keep a small private pool up and running for the year. Does having a heated pool add to the cost? Do you pay a company or are you keeping it up yourself?

thank you

Me too. I guess there are not many Palm Beach residents on this board.

$75 to $100 a month is the norm. Running the pump will cost you $1 a day in electricity for 6 hours. So figure $105-130 a month total monthly cost.

You could probably do it yourself for $25 a month as long as you don't screw it up (green pool = more chemicals/shock to fix it).

I pay $80/month for full service - clean, chemicals, etc.

The pump or motor or whatever (this is why I have a service, lol) has been replaced twice (once on move in) five years ago, and once earlier this year. $500-$600 replacement.
