    He wants to sell his pool, why is that unusual?

    I really hope this guy is kidding...pool for sale. Otherwise you would need a heck of a truck to get it out of there!

    Re: He wants to sell his pool, why is that unusual?

    He just wants someone else to do his work, and pay for it to boot. All he has of any value is equipment yet he expects the buyer to pay for removing his plaster pool. He ought to be giving the equipment away for free if he's going to expect someone to come and jackhammer his freakin pool out.

    Don't waste time and energy looking for a better value on test kits, the TF100 is the best deal around. I did the looking and spent the extra money, but you don't have to make the same mistake. Just go here: TFTestkits. I use Pool Calculator for min/max, and shocking chlorine levels.

    Nominated for a Best Of Craig's List postings. I would tell him to get his water out of my pool or I'll leave there. I wouldn't want to move the additional 80+ tons.

    The Texas coast was battered by hurricanes a few years ago - this guy is obviously delusional.

    I've threatened to take our pool down many times! A couple times I may have meant it.

    I'm threatening and considering it too. Seems like all they do once they're in the pool is beat each other over the head with pool toys and scream. ARGH!

    Ha, I can't help but think of Clark Griswold from National Lampoons Vacation, all the guy want's is for some quality family time and he works so hard only to have his family drive him nuts to the point that he totally freaks on everyone.....then his family get's mad at him. It's classic.

    As a dad I can totally picture that moment of snapping:
    "IF YOU ALL DON'T STOP IT I'M GONNA GET A DUMP TRUNK AND FILL THE ENTIRE THING IN WITH DIRT.....NOw STOP IT".

    Followed by nervous looks as they assess dad's seriousness on the matter.
    Gotta love parenthood.
