I never thought of this but recently my husband hired a company to drain our swimming pool, clean it and add fresh water. Our pool has had the same water in it for over 10 years! Even with all of the chemicals put in it to kill germs, the thought of it being used for that long with the same junk in it kind of makes me sick to my stomach!

Yuck! I never really thought about it since we don't have a pool. But I suppose the same could be said for public pools in apt complexes, etc.

Well around here in the Midwest, most outdoor pools are drained annually, since it gets too cold to use them in the winter. But I agree, the thought of swimming in 10 year old pool water is quite gross.

A couple of the houses we looked at had a pool, but we decided against them because of the pool. The laws here are pretty strict, and none of the pools we saw met the regs and would have needed a lot of money to bring them up to code. Would have been nice, though, to get home and jump in the pool! (Except right now the water would probably be way to hot!!!)

We fall into the pool after working in the yard. It's great for cooling down! I don't think I'd buy a house without a pool here. It's just too hot and we use ours. But, we're on a golf course so sometimes you have to be leary of a ball hitting you while you're floating out there. I'd never buy a home anywhere near a golf course again. It's too dangerous.

Our two pools here in the resort I live in are drained and cleaned thoroughly at the beginning of each summer. Plus serviced each month by a pool cleaning company.

That's the way it is around here, but like I said, we have Midwestern winters to contend with, so pools really MUST be drained.

Speaking of water...our house flooded from a broken pipe! I now have hairy-legged men working around me. An opportunity to paint and organize.

Sorry about the broken pipe, Dianne. Such as waste of water, which is so precious in Arizona.

Enjoy the opportunity to paint and organize.

I considered purchasing a home with a pool, yet it would take up pasture space and cost too much to back fill and turn into a garden!
