    ONE WORD for you water

    what ONE WORD best describes the water in your pool?

    Where this comes from is that I was working the morning coffee as the pump kicked in to begin it's daily duties I was very much impressed with the diamond sharp flashes of reflected light from the rising sun in the ripples on the surface. It set my mind to thinking of all the descriptors used here on TFP. Dull, cloudy, clear, shiny, Yada, Yada, Yada.

    I (for the moment) settled on SHARP.

    You?

    I always think of 'calypso' when I'm in my pool. The water sparkles in the sun, the liner is a perfect Caribbean blue, a few pretty pink petals from my crepe myrtle drift across the surface and the greenery surrounding the pool reflects on the water.

    Yes. Calypso.

    My friend used the word "gorgeous" to describe my water the other day. My smile was big, lol.

    Amazing! I can honestly say I have never seen a pool so clear. When my kids are underwater I always think of HD, I can see everything so perfectly when they are swimming underwater.
