    I dunno... looks like a pool to me. Maybe they mean it has to be green and cloudy to be a "real pool"

    It seems to me if you can stretch out in it, it ceases to be a tub and becomes a pool.

    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!

    Leslie's "real pool" = something we sold you, and we empty your wallet keeping it green, slimy and unusable.

    Our "real pool" = a relatively large open top container of crystal clear very inviting well cared for water.

    Last week Dh and I saw a family that had flipped a camper shell over, lined it with a tarp and filled it with water, the kids were playing in it. THAT Is not a real pool (although awesome in it's own right ), yours is definitely a real pool LOL

    How can they say they're not pools? Leslie's Pool Stores SELL Intex pools. What in the world do they call them, overgrown spas??
