When you live in Southern California and especially in the Palm Springs area... a pool is necessary luxury.  Most homeowners either have their own private pool, or access to a community pool within their HOA.  Private pools require regular cleaning, filtration, and care.  Professional pool services usually come twice a week and charge between $90-$150/month.

If you live in a community or HOA with a pool your HOA fees will cover the cost of cleaning.  Although many homeowners would prefer a private pool, often times the HOA will will heat the pool for use in the winter.  Private pools with natural gas heating can cost $300+ to keep them warm in the winter months.  

 

 

 

Saltwater pools have become very popular because of their natural chlorination.  The water doesn't have the traditional "chlorine" smell and it doesn't turn your hair green or make your skin itch. A saltwater conversion system is easily installed and cost around $1200.  

The swimming pool culture of Southern California is alive and well-- the swimming pool adds value to your home, provides a fun place for parties, and gives you a great place to cool off!
