    Inground pools make sense in Calgary:

    - above say, 1.5 million $$ property value (upper class/rich owners)
    - if they are covered in a 3 season room (or are part of the house)

    I lived in a house on Capri Ave that had a pool when I moved to my grandparents in grade 9
    It was pretty pimp back then, had some wild parties.

    Would I have one today? Fuck no. Way too much maintenance I don't even like our backyard kiddy pool
    Machining, Fabricating, Welding etc.

    To each their own, but I don't think a outdoor pool in Calgary is worth all the cost and maintenance that will ultimately go into it. Perhaps an indoor pool would be alright.

    I've had a hot tub and I never used it much and had to spend a lot of time keeping it up... then my wife decided we needed an above ground pool for the kids and that was yet another pain in the ass.

    I'd never have any of that stuff again, personally. Find friends with a hot tub & pool and go there. haha.

    Hot tub I can totally see. I also have a back herniation/arthritis and heat is amazeballs for it.

    Thanks....hoping I can bargain down a home price if it has a pool haha.

    I do love hot tubs when going to ski resorts and such. Never had one myself or know anyone that does have one.
    Are they a big pain in the ass cost/maintenance-wise or are they still worth it for Calgary? Can still use it during some winter days possibly?

    So first off, hot tubs are the bomb in winter. Fuck yes you can use it in winter.

    Maintenance wise, it's generally about maintaining water quality. Chemicals every week or so. There are some companies that will set you up on a schedule and take care of it for you.

    It's no more work than taking care of a fish tank. And hot tubs are BEST in the Winter.

    I'd say hot tubs are less work than most fish tanks. Fuck yeah to hot tubs.
