Cost of swimming pool maintenance

Hello, 

I am interested to hear from people who have a swimming pool how much they spend annually on maintenance (e.g., chemicals, pool person to come by, etc.), electricity (e.g., pool pump, heating, etc.) and anything else related to their pool. We understand that it will depend on various factors but my wife an I simply want to get an idea how much we should conservatively budget for swimming pool upkeep per year. Thank you. 

Stefan

Hi Stefan, we house sit in a villa with an unheated pool. We recently worked out our electricity use for our off grid build snd were shocked to find half of the usage here is the pool pump, about 500€ a year. The only other cost we've encountered is choline tabs, not too much say 20-30€ a year. And topping up the water, again not a big cost. No idea how much servicing might cost though or how often but we've been here 3 years without any, so probably not a frequent job.
