    Our new to us pool with some of our own touches

    We moved in early this spring and upgraded from a 24' above ground to this 20x40 in ground. We've had to chase down some leaks but we've finally been able to put our own touches on our new backyard oasis . We added a 4' removeable fence, new patio furniture and got our outdoor stereo set up
