A swimming pool can be an amazing addition to a home. It brings a lot of joy, many beautiful memories are formed in a swimming pool, and it’s clearly a great place to get your daily exercise. However, are you growing tired of it? Perhaps you can no longer afford to run it? In any case, we’re going to explore the 5 signs which should let you know to cut your losses as its time to get your pool removed.
1 – You never use it and you don’t plan to
If you never use your swimming pool, then the odds are that you don’t spend any time on maintaining it either. Which means that before long, your pool is going to fall into disrepair and become a dangerous health hazard. Or perhaps you’ve enjoyed using your swimming pool, however you have plans to extend your home and build an annexe, but don’t have the room. Maybe it’s time to get your pool removed all together so that you can put that space to good use?
2 – You can no longer afford to keep up with maintenance and energy bills
Running a swimming pool and maintaining it properly is certainly not cheap. In fact, over the years it can end up costing you a significant amount of money. If you can’t justify paying for it when you rarely use it, then it might be worth considering having it removed. Just think of the money that you’ll be able to save in the long run when maintenance and heating is no longer required?
3 – The swimming pool has fallen into disrepair
If your swimming pool has fallen into disrepair, then you have to ask: why? The reason for you not caring for it is likely down to the fact that you don’t particularly value it. If you don’t enjoy swimming and you’ve rarely used your pool, then what’s the point in having one? Yes, you could have it renovated by all means, but if you’re only going to neglect it again, then you’ll be wasting your money.
At least if you were to have the swimming pool removed, you’d be able to utilise the space available for something else.
4 – You’ve been stressed out about it
The fact is, having a swimming pool is just another thing for you to have to worry about. The beautiful thing about not owning a swimming pool: no stress. If you’ve found that maintaining the pool, keeping it clean, heated and in good-repair has caused you more stress than you can be bothered to deal with; then get rid of it. It really is as simple as that!
