    Opening the Pool 2015

    Today the weather looked good and I was tired of draining the rain off the cover. Time to take the cover off and get ready to enjoy the water.

    I think this counts as the first swim of the season?? Even at 55 I couldn't keep them out of the water.



    All in all the water didn't look that bad, considering each year we pump all the water from the cover into the pool. Our fill water is VERY high in iron so anything we can do to avoid trucking in water we do. A SLAM session is MUCH cheaper than then $300 it would cost us to top off the pool each winter.




    So lets see them everybody! I'd LOVE to see your photo's once you first open your pool for the summer.
