    MY Above Ground Swim up Bar

    We had a big party for my wife's 40th birthday and I wanted a swim up bar. This is what I came up with. It worked great and we were very happy with it. I am planning on getting a couple of umbrellas for it instead of using the tent over it. The tent was really cool but umbrellas would be easier to put up and down for daily use. I can take some better pics of it if anyone is interested.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    I had some old weight bench weights laying around, so I removed the legs, slid the weight over and put the leg back on. Then wrapped with a towel to pad it from damaging the bottom of the pool. It worked better than I imagined it would, the legs never moved.

    esim13 - I do loved the green tent, wish it wasn't so much work to pack it back up though.
