Default Inground pool maintenance? Costs?

Has anyone installed/lived in a house with an inground pool? What is the maintenance like? What extra costs can be expected? I understand you need extra liability insurance too?

Thanks

It's not a lot of extra work. The electricity for the pump and gas for the heater should be under $2000 for the season (less if you use a solar heater or solar blanket. Chemicals are maybe 500/yr if you have a few problems. Insurance rates won't change much. Saltwater costs more upfront but costs less to maintain and is more comfortable.
