    This is not my pool, but I found it, thought you would appreciate it.

    Ouch. That's an expensive moment of inattention.

    So anyone want to estimate how much chlorine it takes to oxidize a bobcat?

    Or is that one of those mini-movers the landscaping guys use?

    Yea, I'm hoping it's a cement pool. Tile or Vinyl might be a bit trickier. On the plus side, any oil dripping off the thing would lube the pump!

    Perhaps they were hoping to start an in-pool reef.

    Since I'm under construction, and have faced a few delays along the way, I can honestly say this scares me! Ouch - that would be a very undesirable delay.

    Maybe the driver had partaken of too much reef(er)
