    What would be really cool is if that was an automatic retracting cover. Press a button and the grass goes down and then slides sideways off underground somewhere.

    Now that is not covered in Pool School. Look at all that algae, so thick you can walk on it!

    The pump and the SWG must have both failed!

    Just what I need, more grass to mow. I would rather deal with a pool then more grass any day. My back yard is low/no maintenance and a big part of that is because of the 80 by 50 foot area the pool/decking takes up.
