      Hi, Im contemplating buying a medium sized 3 bed villa with its own pool and wondered if anyone could tell me the additional running costs. ie pool maintenance, garden.Calahonda Area.
      Many thanks for any input.

      Depends on what sort of pool it is. Tiled once expect to redo them at least once every 10 years.. often shorter time periods since the chlor and other additives eats up the “don’t know the name for it that is between the tiles” material. Also when they build pools in Spain they don’t usually take into account that the ground shifts which makes it not uncommon for the pool to crack. The tablets that you need to use are quite expensive. Are you going to monitor the pool yourself or use outside help? Usually one uses the same people for that and the garden.

      I would caculate a mininum of 100 pounds for the pool a month.

      €15 a visit from the pool man this includes the chemicals expect 2 visits in the summer a week and 1 in the winter.You will have to regrout the pool not retile it so its not as scary as it sounds above but there is always the possability the pool will colapse when emptied doesn’t happen often but it does happen usually when the pool is on a hillside and the ground has shifted down.
