Below are some pictures for some show and tell. I already started losing sleep when the demo didn't go as smoothly as I'd had hoped.

View from the diving board.

Current pool equipment.
Drained! (It took about 18 hours to drain)

Our pool contractor suggested we have some fun with our drained pool...so we did some coloring.
