i'm new here and just wanted to say hi. we live in upstate ny, about half way between albany and saratoga springs. it's a beautiful area. we've been here about 2-1/2 years after a move from long island. honestly we were not looking for a house with a pool but since it's there, we might as well use it! it's 20 x 40 inground and heated. it's been a challenge have never had a pool before but i guess you learn as you go.
