Nice. I did that for my kids when they were 8 and 10 and they loved it and used it almost every day in the summer. I wish it was only 85 here. So far the past 4 days - 101, 102, 98, and 92 today - with high humidity - pretty miserable - wish I had the pool instead of a neighborhood pool with other people hanging out and pissing in it.

I run mine with the best solar blanket they sell and it increases the temp up to 10 degrees. Keep your chems up so the water doesn't go green, cause it's a pain to get it bake to clear and expensive. Looks good

Ah i remember our first pool when i was about 5 or 6, my Dad said he was building a slab for a new garage and we were helping him, and then at some point I thought, "hang on a minute this aint no garage...."

We lived close to my parents who had a pool, and I just didn't see the need for more than 1 pool in a family. Now we live further away, but we're empty nesters, and our neighborhood has a community pool.

This is my folk's pool and backyard.
