imageMike and I had enough with the heat this summer and so instead of investing 50k in a real pool we decided to be WT and pick up a above ground pool.  We purchased the pool over 4th of July weekend and started setting it up as soon as we got home.  This dang thing took like 12 hours to fill with water!  I had no idea how involved a tiny above ground pool would be.  This pool has a filter and we have to test the PH and chlorine and add chemicals.  I tried really hard to keep the pool healthy but after only 4 weeks the pool decided to commit suicide.  We ended up draining the pool because we were going to be out of town the next week anyways.  I am not sure if we will set it up again just because it takes more work than I was interested in.  The last thing I need is another thing to clean and maintain.  It was fun while it lasted and maybe we will set it up again next summer.
