We have a pool. Last year, dh took care of buying the chemicals and maintaining the pool. He refuses to this year because we didn't use it as much as he thought we should to make it worth the money. He wants to tear it down. (He doesn't use it much because it is in direct sunlight and gets really warm in the summer.)
So now if I want to keep it, I have to maintain it and buy the chemicals for it. I am already so busy with keeping the house clean, my veggie garden, working full time. But I hate to tear down the pool because I would use it at least a few times a week while I am gardening or for exercising. Last year I didn't use it as much because dh didn't keep up with the chemicals like he should and I never knew if it was safe to use.
So what is a good compromise because dh is mad that I don't want to tear it down? I don't really want to maintain it totally by myself. DH already does far less around the house than I do.
