    I thought this was a family friendly forum! Now we have peeps running hoe's on the forum?

    I thought that famous line was, "Hold my beer and watch this!" I'm like you guys, just letting the kids in that water looks like child endangerment much less flinging them around with an excavator.

    Re: The greatest pool toy ever

    I went to YouTube and searched for pool and backhoe. What do you know there is a few of them, the one above, another one with peeps in the bucket, and another that looks like a Russian new account of it. I would love to know what the reporter is saying.

    Who knew they had rednecks is Russia!

    Floaties?
    Where kids swim in 54 degree water, turn blue, and giggle happily cuz they got a POOL!
    Year 3 BBB -15' x 48" Intex Metal Frame - Was using (2) 1000gph Intex cartridge filters (see Full time pumping Intex). 2012, converted to 1600gph and sand filter+SWG = Sand filter love affair!
    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.
