After six years of diligent saving, my wife and I finally got to use our new swimming pool for the very first time.
We’ve had the new pool under construction for the past month while the pool installation company builds it from the ground up.
Despite the additional costs, we chose ornate ceramic tiles for the base of the swimming pool. We could have saved money by forgoing some of the unnecessary aesthetic splurges, but we wanted to add as much value to the house as possible. I couldn’t be happier with the result. It looks like a massive and exquisite piece of artwork. I can’t wait to use the new swimming pool all year round. Despite living in a warm climate, we still tend to get cold weather throughout the winter season. Even if it’s only 65 degrees outside, the water is going to be too cold to use for swimming. We bought a heater for the swimming pool, but not just any heating system. This pool heater derives its power from a series of solar panels that were installed on the top of our house’s roof. During the afternoon, these panels soak up energy from the sun and convert it into electricity to charge a battery that powers the heater for our swimming pool. As long as it hasn’t been days of overcast weather, these solar panels give us on demand heat for our swimming pool during the cold winter season. They’re completely self-sufficient and easily power the pool’s heating system. I wish I could get solar energy for the rest of my house, as well as solar panels on the top of a car someday in the far-off future.
