My pool is sparkling. But chilly 76°F. So despite it looking mighty inviting, I ain't quite ready to jump in.
I did a search here, all the picture threads seem to have dead links.
I have a hose bib on the outlet pipe, the hose on it gets HOT. My yard gets a lot of sun.
Sooo.....I'm thinking about building a collector using some black plastic irrigation hose. Whaddya think? A piece of plywood painted black with the hose attached so it doesn't turn into a tangled mess? A plexiglass cover or not? It should be relatively easy to round up the parts at Lowes, a couple pieces of garden hose to connect it and return it to the pool, no permanent modifications needed.
