    Got Started on the New to me 18 ft Intex have a few Pictures

    Water seems to be coming up fairly level....course a big storm blew about a 1000 leaves into the pool last night

    I was going to put a new Intex but it's so late in the season I found this one for 250.00 with the pump and filter and decided to try and get the rest of the year out of it.

    Nice setup! Is this for you, or for the grand kiddos?

    Aaah, for the grandkiddos, of course.

    How come you never got in?
    My mom, due to her auto accident injury, can't hardly get into our little pool, bad ladder design at the top in how it clears the inflatable ring for her limited leg mobility and extension.
    I have a new ladder for her this year, should be easy peasy for her. I'll know soon enough.
