When I was young, my mother would never let us make a 'whirlpool' in the above ground pool in her yard. She said the pressure would basically make the pool 'explode' for lack of a better word.
Last night, I had 8 teens in the pool having a blast making a pretty substantial 'whirlpool' in my 27' AGP. I was smiling as I watched them... but in the back of my mind, my mothers words starting ringing loudly in my brain. It was all I could do to not utter those same words to the kids.
Is there any truth to my mother's warning or is she just a killjoy? On the bright side, my steps were moving during this 'whirlpool', so I know there was some good water flow through them for probably the first time ever.
