    Aeration Question

    I bought one of those water fountains to help aerate my pool along with water features. When aerating is it better to point it down at the pool or let it go up in the air and fall back to the pool?

    You'll lose more to evaporation if it points up. But that also works well as a pool cooler, which might be nice in Vegas. Nobody feels refreshed jumping into bathwater.

    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!

    I recommend up in the air at night only.
