    Hello from Toronto, ON

    HI There,

    I'm so happy to have found this site. DH and I live in the suburbs of Toronto with our three boys (8, 10, and 12). I've been a wannabe pool owner since I was kid, but an actual pool owner for only 2 years.

    We would have loved an inground but have a "big bath tub" instead. Who knows, maybe in a few years we dig deeper

    Welcome to the forum. I am just down the road, in the city that has produced the most
    NHL hockey players in the world. Any guess?

    Weather has been terrible so far, hopefully it turns around this week.
    Later!

    Re: Hello from Toronto, ON

    It's been really cold up here which has DH almost convinced to get a heater
    We have a south facing back yard with no trees and it can get REALLY hot back there, but we'd really like to extend the swimming season.

    Grab a solar system! By buddy installed one last year after seeing mine, and loves it. Though these coldish days and killer nights are not helping much.
