    Opened the pool and saw this!



    At least if we are floating around and our drinks get warm, just break off a piece of ice and you are good!

    Water looks nice and so does the ice. Just drill a hole for your beer to sit in...good to go.

    Hey, at least you did not wait too late, let the water get warm and have algae start growing.

    Wow. How deep is your pool? Keep the cover off and go ice skating in the winter...

    I'd advise against ice skating in the winter although it would be a lot of fun! You'd ruin the liner.

    Pool is 54" deep I think. We've, like everyone else I think, had a brutally cold and lengthy winter. Spring even came late this year, but the icebergs are melting quickly.

    I was in the back yard doing some stuff and heard this splashing noise, well one of the top parts of a piece came off and slid into the water. A mini tsunami I guess!

    I peeked under the cover of ours on and off over the last few weeks before opening yesterday and ours looked exactly the same - it didn't fully thaw out until about a week ago, and that's only because we get a lot of sun in our backyard and I kept pumping off the cover to maximize the heat transfer to the water.. We shared that brutally cold winter with ya down here Toronto way, don't worry.

    Thats not bad. I got 10" of ice solid in my pool yet. We were extremely cold this year and it really shows. Still going to take some time for it to thaw out. 2-3 weeks I am guessing from the looks of things.
