    New pool, new member

    Hi, everyone. New pool owner here in the great state of Texas. I thought I would be swimming year round, but it's really cold right now! Haven't heated the pool yet, but plan on doing it maybe this weekend. Got in the spa, it was really nice! The build isn't quite finished yet. Plan on posting a before and after very shortly, with a few pictures, if I can figure this place out, haha!

    HI! And LOL at the swimming year round! Best laid plans and all of that. Oh you can swim all year round but it will cost you for sure. It is funny how fast the water gets cold!

    Here is a great link for you to get you started.

    I jumped in when it was around 75 degrees - it was pretty cold! Spa feels great. Only a few more items and the entire backyard will be complete.
