I see you live in Texas so you have good reason to have a pool When I lived in South Carolina, I LIVED in that pool when I couldn't get out to the ocean. If I lived in Texas I would demand a pool!

Here in my area of PA it is kind of unusual to find a house with a pool. There's maybe one or two in my neighborhood with a pool and I've only seen one in-ground pool since I've lived here. They are easy to see since there is no ordinance in the counties/cities here in this region for fences around the pool so most people don't bother with putting a fence up.

I don't have a pool but am looking at a boat since I'm next to Lake Erie and wouldn't mind boating on it as well as swimming in it. It kind of works out since the lake temperature coincides with comfortable weather for swimming.

I think a pool is a personal preference and nothing more. In NJ if I was purchasing a home unless it was a backyard oasis I'd likely look at a pool as a negative. It be just one more thing to worry about and take care of, more money to spend and I could only use it maybe 3-4 months out of the year. If I had little ones I'd also be worried about safety...

With that said, I lived in FL for a while and we had a screened in pool off the back of the house which we used almost every day like 7 months out of the year and I'd never have a house down there without a pool.

Uh, yeah. It’s so hot right now I refuse to go outside.

We’d love to add a pool but nobody would ever leave us alone lol and insurance, utilities, etc will skyrocket. Plus you don’t necessarily get your money back if you invest in a pool.

I have a very nice pool in my neighborhood. A neighborhood pool that is salt water. I could never have my own pool that was this nice and this big. Furthermore, I would not want my own pool due to liability and maintenance. I looked for a neighborhood with amenities and a pool, and I found one. The yearly HOA is $575.00, so it is much cheaper than owning my own pool.
And, like said above, here in South Carolina, it is so hot in the summer you must try to get in the water somewhere. I prefer the beach, but the pool is always very nice.
