    Cool Have you given your pool a name?

    Since having read the analogy often that a pool is like a pet, I've decided to give my pool a name...

    Oscar


    It fits because... well... when I don't take good care of Oscar, he turns into a green swampy smelling grouch. Oscar doesn't seem to mind being that way. In fact, he's perfectly happy taunting me while I throw away my hard earned green in the trash!!!





    OTOH... when Oscar looks the way it does now... sparkely clean... I feel like I should get a prize or something





    Ok... back on my meds

    Thanks for all the help keeping Oscar (and me) happy.

    My wife named our Polaris cleaner "Polly" soon after we bought it. I have to admit, the implications of Oscar & Polly getting together are a bit weird @@

    Yeah right now it is...you better be worth it black hole! We are buying a foreclosure and the pool needs a new liner. The bank is paying but it is holding up closing. I am just praying the equipment works ok otherwise it may hold us up even more. We are living in a hotel and we are all tired of it and ready to move in.

    We had a Hayward pool cleaner, and since Hayward seems like such a great name (even for a human), we would just call it Hayward.

    "Could you please take Hayward off of the hose."

    "I think Hayward needs to be cleaned again."
