The other day I mentioned that we had worked on the pool. We have a rather odd way of doing it but what can I say, we're odd.
We drain it and scrub it then refill it. Now this seems like a lot of work but I have never had a year where you take the cover off and it's crystal clear ready to go. With the pump we have it would take all summer to clean it up so we just drain and scrub.
By 4:00 p.m. Saturday I was a little on the pink side and felt like I had been wading in pond scum all afternoon but we were done and ready to start filling it back up. Duke had a hand in the work too. He couldn't stand the fact that both Wade and I were down in the pool without him. He stepped onto the ladder then jumped in.
Needless to say, Duke is very happy that the pool is almost ready. He watched the hose and prayed for it to fill faster. Yes, we do fill it with the hose. It's actually cheaper than having water hauled in.
Happy pool boy waiting for his first dip.
