People in search of a new place to call home often favour indoor pools instead of outdoor swimming areas. They reckon that the tedious maintenance required to keep an outdoor pool clean is not worth the price and that they’d much rather enjoy such a luxury all year long instead of having access to it only in the summer season.
But in truth, indoor pools are also hard to maintain and keeping them well-lit and continuously keeping them supplied with warm water can get quite expensive. Outdoor pools, on the other hand, are often heated solely by the sun, for which you won’t need to pay anything. And as far as upkeep goes, if you set up a proper cover over the pool and remove the debris every now and then with a leaf net, you’ll find it’s quite easy to maintain.
