    My New Pool

    My wife and I began our pool construction in 2010. We have enjoyed it for almost 3 years now. Here is our photo documentary....

    Harleysilo, that is a "Poola Hoops" goal. I really like it. However I would suggest swapping out the nylon net with a metal net. With the Arizona sun and desert living the net here might would last a week. I can post a close up when I get home this evening.

    Re: My New Pool

    The first 2 years we would have literally hundreds of desert frog in our pool at night. Then come morning the smaller ones would get sucked into the skimmer and the bigger ones would either drown or get sucked in the skimmer. Very disgusting to say the least. I came up with a solution, check it out....
