When we installed our first pool I installed it with my brother in law. It took a bit more than a week (nights after work, and two weekends) to get it up and functional. And to be honest it wasn’t all that level.
This time however, after considering what my time is worth, the fact that I am older and less patient, I decided to have a professional install the pool this time. Needless to say he was able to get the job done in far less time (4-1/2 hours to be exact).
Now I was only too happy to get rid of our temporary pool that we had for two seasons after our original one upped and decided to just split. But I think I may have gone a bit overboard. The new pool is 18′ round. Which doesn’t sound all that big, but when you stick it in my yard… well…
Let’s just say that there isn’t really all that much yard left at all. I guess that is what I get for sticking too much to a city area where lots are small.
But I’m not complaining, because I know when we eventually get this sucker filled up (can I tell you, that some 23,000 gallons of water through a garden hose can take quite a while), LatteGirl will be thrilled.
I have already chronicled that she loves the water. So I know it will certainly get plenty of use. And since this pool comes with a 35 year warranty, this will be the last pool purchase, I ever have to make. (I certainly hope and expect that it will be anyway).
And who knows, if I am good, besides having the honor of cleaning and vacuuming it, maybe I will even get to use it once in a while.
