September 16, 2014 — One of our members, Caps, posted this question on another Blog topic, the results of our recent Retirement Confidence survey. SandyZ suggested that since it generated a fair amount of discussion, we move the swimming pool conversation here to give it its own place. Good suggestion!
Another question for the other readers…. There hasn’t been a blog addressing this issue that I am aware of.
We plan to purchase our retirement home next week. We will be choosing from 5 that intrigue us. One home has a full underground pool, one has one of the best rated above ground pools, with decking to boot, one has a swim spa (swimming against jets, plus a hot tub all in one unit 16?), one has a regular hot tub that seats 6 and one has no pool or spa, but a great location.
So the question……do any of you have any experience with pools or spas? We do not, however believe it would be a good feature for exercise as we age. We live so far up north, owning and heating a pool seemed nonsensical to us. We are planning a relocation to eastern TN, where water features are quite common.
We could really use some advice and help with our decision. We have no idea how any of these choices would affect our budget. PLEASE HELP
