New Dishwasher

Page 2 of 2  


I actually read that guy's blog. He knows a lot less than he thinks he knows, believe me. I've kicked it around and decided to fill it in, but in the process, I am preparing the site for a future install of a fiberglass pool, which will probably be around the 10,000 gallon size. The current cement pool is 32K gallons, too big, too old, too much maintenance

Around here a house with a pool generally sels for LESS than one without as the demand for pools is low.
If you are REAL lucky, you might get 50 cents on the dollar for the pool when you sell. (but then we are not far from the great lakes in any direction, and many smaller lakes as well - and we have some pretty good municiple pool facilities )

It depends on the market but you're right. a pool can draw the price down. But it takes strategy. Sell your house June, July and August in Central TX. Here you add 30 or 40k if you have a pool.
I thought owning a pool was expensive but for what you get out of them. Kids love pool parties. So do adults. Public Pools? Nah....I swim in hotel pools when we travel but I went to our public pool and it was right out of Southpark...the water was too warm. kids everywhere. I didn't see one go to the bathroom.

You do know the law says you are supposed to pay the 'use tax' on purchases like that, right? (aka substitute sales tax). I'd be careful about admitting you are a scofflaw about it online, lest the state tax people (or your neighbors) use that as an excuse to make your life miserable.
Just sayin'

OMG, we didn't say we didn't pay the tax, only that they didn't charge tax

We have to pay tax on the $500 one. But the installation is not taxed here in Texas.
We can still make internet purchases here w/o taxes. This will be taxed through my property and the sales tax. The county sure seems to think this place is a hot seller. Jacked it up this year for more than what I paid for it. a holes but our market is good. Texas good, California.bad.

Do it the best way you won't get any leaks. I have all copper on the D/W line and the icemaker line--no leaks so far after 19 years, why change? A battery-operated water detector is cheap insurance too.

If you can live with a noisy dishwasher get the lowest priced one that suites your finish/color. SS finishes may cost more and a SS interior cleans dishes no better than a PVC tub. You can wrap the unit with polyspun filler material to help reduce the noise. Reliable brands: Bosch, Whirlpool, Kenmore
