Anyone have a pool in the backyard and/or a jacuzzi? Did you have it built or was it already there when you moved in? How often do you use it? Every single person I know who has bought a pool since I've known them has regretted paying thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars to have a pool or jacuzzi in the backyard. Not only the initial cost of the purchase, but the maintenance, water bill, etc.. costs a lot over time. I'm a CPO (certified pool operator) by the county, so I know a lot about them, but they just are not worth it. After the purchase, you and your kids might use them often, but in a short period of time, the pool gets rarely used... then things start to break down. Then you're looking at some serious money for repairs.
