My husband and I have been living in our home for 5 years.
When we bought the house where they pull, the first thing that I mentioned was adding a heating element.
I thought it would be great to be able to use the pool during the entire year. I didn’t swim very much during the first summer, so my husband didn’t think it was a good investment to add a heating element to the pool the first year that we were there. The next summer I swam a lot and I brought up the heater again. My husband still wasn’t on board with adding a heater. He brought up the costs and the fact that we would likely need to add a propane tank if we were going to heat the pool economically. My husband brought up a lot of points that were really good. I wasn’t thinking about all of the additional costs. I think heating the pool is a great idea and I do think that I would swim frequently, but I don’t work. My hubby is the one person in the house who works and makes the money, so that means that the decision is my husband’s to make. I hope that he will decide to add a heater to the pool and if not I will continue to go to the YMCA on Tuesdays and Thursdays to meet with Cody for the weekly swim classes. The swim class is fun and the instructor is cute, but I would rather have a private pool than swim with 20 other people.
