    • It’s a horrible shame. A friend on facebook said something earlier today that made sense – why not lease the pool out to someone or a company that maintains it and carries insurance on it in exchange for free rein rather than let it go to waste and fall apart? Plus, with the advent of saltwater pools, the cost of chemicals wouldn’t be a factor. 🙂
