    Our oasis

    Posting a few pics of our oasis. Have taken over the chemistry ourselves, still learning, but much more stable than when maintained by a company. Pool is 1.5 years old.

    I hear/read people say they can tell about the chemistry by just looking at the water. Haven't mastered that trick yet, but it's clear, sparkling, and inviting.

    Next up is a nice covering over the patio. Have the design in my head, but not the money in the bank <G>.

    This is our pad area. I think it's pretty clean and usable.

    Very nice looking pool ! Im sure it's going to see a lot of use.
    In time you'll know when something is off by looking at it ! Stay with our methods and it'll be trouble free. 😎

    Re: Our oasis

    Thanks. It already sees a lot of use. Most days I do 50-100 laps or swim against the jets.
    We designed it...did not want any decking around it. Too much useless space for our needs and takes away dog area.
    Continuing to teach the dogs the way out by putting them in and getting them to swim to the steps. They're corgis and are not fans of water. They have a pool alarm on their collar that shrieks at 120dB in the house if they would fall in, but covering them both ways.

    That's a very pretty pool! My son has a lab and a corgi mix - the corgi loves the pool and the lab avoids it at all costs???? Usually it's the other way around! Lol.
