    Finally got to use the pool!

    Well guys, I finally got to use our pool yesterday. We threw a Birthday party for a friend and invited a small crowd over. Everyone had a blast. The water is finally just warm enough to be tolerable lol. And a few pictures I've taken lately...

    Btw...the Trouble Free way is working great!

    Can't tell if that's floating or on the bottom.

    Great view! I could see spending many evenings with a sunset then lighting a fire there.

    Appears to be floating, might it be a gnat, ant or black fly colony?

    The left smudge is a foot print. Did someone step in tar or something and then jump into the pool??

    Lol no Skippy that's ants floating on the top. I came home that day and it looked like that. I scooped them out and haven't seen them since but we haven't had a large number of people use the pool since either. I'll be killing all the ants around the pool so I shouldn't have any issues with this again

    Freaky!!! The left side schmutz looks just like a foot print in the sane (see the big toe? See the arch?!) so I thought it was on the bottom of the pool. Well glad to hear you managed to rid the pool of all that livestock..... just weird.

    Ants never would have guessed! I thought maybe Paul Bunyan had stopped by and used your pool to shave his beard lol. You have a great setup Edge.

    Very nice pool and gorgeous setting. It looks like a brochure you'd see at a pool company.
