Wow, it has been one hot-hot summer out there and yesterday’s rain accompanied cool front was certainly a blessing.
Despite the heat, I have had a great summer thus far and I have truly enjoyed our family pool this summer more than most. Family and friends pool side over the weekend and cranking up the grill, when evening comes rolling in, makes for some quality family time in my mind!
There are of course advantages and disadvantages to owning a home with a pool and each home owner must make their own decision and choice. Nevertheless given Huntsville’s enduring summer weather, the natural pool season is 5-6 months long and this can easily be extended with a moderately priced pool heating option.

Advantages vs Disadvantages
The disadvantages of owning a pool home are 2 fold: Primarily having to do with the cost in time and money for maintenance but also if one has small children, safety precautions must be paramount.
For many, the advantages of quality time with family and friends, along with the recreational and health benefits of swimming, more than out weigh the monetary cost. Nonetheless even active and athletic families with small children often decide against owning a pool home while the children are very young.
