    Just scares me about the liner...Its not even a year old, but have heard horror stories about draining above ground pools

    If you have a pool vacuum, that hose will flow 4 to 9 times as much as a garden hose. And the weighted head will keep it on the bottom. Too bad I didn't mention that earlier, huh?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
