    Does it freeze in Aruba? If not, I wouldn't bother doing anything.

    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.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Nope,it's just that the pool has holes everywhere and it's old and i'm not gonna have time to take care of the pool anymore.

    We were planning on closing last month but i convinced them to keep it a few weeks more but since school is gonna start this week i'm not gonna have time to maintain it
