    It's always Christmas in Florida... Pool Pics to Share

    Pics of my pool in Christmas, FL!!!

    Yes... I know it's not perfectly level... :/ that's what happens when you and your bud decide to put it up on memorial day weekend. LOL

    Might build a deck next... still debating it. Couldn't do weed killer yet as it's been raining too much... If it survives this season I will probably take down and re-level even if we build a deck as it will only be on one side...

    ENJOY!!!

    I've seen way worse but I'll take your word for it that it's not level... but I'll give you some advice... if you're going to build a small deck, re-level the pool first so it looks nice and last a long time.

    P.S... I'd get rid of that floater or tie it to the ladder so it isn't parking itself where it is. It will ruin the liner and make it brittle. I'd also keep a close eye on your pH, TA and CYA.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Trying to see where it isn't level, but can't. Looks good to me! At least it can't be too bad if we can't notice it.

    The floater has no tabs in it. I just hadn't taken it out yet...

    Lol the crazy part is we didn't level the ground at all it's close to about 2 inches off in a few spots. This part of my yard is bowl shaped so the bottom is kind of curved lol

    Looks like a party pool to me! With the low res pics narrow view I dont really see much of a levelling issue. If there is a bowl dip in the middle but the sides are barely off, don't worry. Consider it a faux deep end, haha.

    Yeah banish the pucks unless on vacation.

    I wish I had a big yard like that! Have fun!

    Yeah we love our location... we have two acres

    Here's a pic of most of the back yard... view from the pool. The front yard is not visible but it's most of the property, the house sits back a ways.
