A swimming pool is one of the classic signs of the easy life. From the theme song of the Beverly Hillbillies to the closing scene of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby", swimming pools are associated with the rich, the leisurely, and the easy-going in life.

Which is why it's terrible when we learn, after we've spent a great deal of money and time selecting and installing a swimming pool, that that's no easy way to get an easy life. Maintaining a swimming pool can be a massive amount of work, one that makes even the best of us sometimes throw up our hands and say "What was I even thinking, digging this hole in my backyard and filling it up with expensive water?"

In this app, we'll talk about swimming pools. We'll talk about the different kinds of swimming pools available and how each is installed. We'll talk about the maintenance issues associated with each and what we need to do about different pools in different climates. And we'll talk about a few horror stories--not to frighten you so much as to make you aware that when the worst happens, you still have options--even if they are expensive.

As the modern poets say: the simple life is not so simple. The easy life isn't always easy. But with a firm grasp on some of these principles of year-round pool maintenance, you'll find it much easier than you otherwise would--and you'll have that much more time to enjoy the fruits of all your long efforts and labors.
