Pool Home Warranty for Newbie

We close on an "as is" home next week and wonder if it is worthwhile to add the pool home warranty for $160 with a service charge of $35 per visit. Assuming of course that the insurance company will let us add it at closing.

We are totally new to pools ... but not afraid to change pumps, etc. The pool has a sand filter and is presently being filled by a garden hose.

May be worth the money depending on the age and condition of the house/pool. When we bought our house here 3 years ago we didn't and have had no problems, but the house and pool were only about 6 years old at the time. I wouldn't wait until closing to notify that you want it though, since it may screw up the paperwork shuffle that goes with a closing. Good luck.

Right. If it's only a one year term, $160 PLUS $35 per call sounds a little steep, especially if it's not very old and in good shape. Would also depend on the coverage, i.e. what exactly do you get for your $160.
