Finally, after a few VERY hot days, we
had our pool put up. (We thought about
doing it ourselves, but thought better of it)
I am really glad too, because the guys who installed
it are pros, they really knew what they were doing--which
is a good thing since during the installation we ran into a few
glitches. All is well, though, because when you hire someone
who knows what they are doing, they can figure out how to
make it work.
First off, I found a used pool on Craigs List for $150.00. Yay!
Then, I ordered a new liner and some accessories on the
internet. Then, of course, we had to wait a few weeks to
save money to hire the installers.
Getting there...notice Emily in the background checking
out the progress...she is getting excited! :)
than it looks in the picture. I have learned that the darker your liner, the
more sparkly it looks with the sun shining down on it.
I know, I need to take a picture outside, not inside! lol
Anyway...it IS a little smaller than what we had before.
Our pool at our other house was a 24 round and this one
is 18 round, but since our yard is smaller in back we thought
this was better. But, it is plenty sufficient to cool off on these
hot, humid, east Tennessee days! I expect that Emily and I
will be doing lots of swimming in the days to come.
(Her Daddy doesn't like to swim much, which is even
more of a blessing that he allows us to spend the time,
money, and energy to have a pool--although he will probably
get in with us a time or two this summer)
(When, I get the opportunity, I will post some better pics)
