    Some jerk stole my water last night!

    Oh... sorry, my fault, water is there, just so crystal clear and motionless, pool looks empty...

    Just be happy I didn't post last week when my water went nasty-cloudy within minutes of jumping in. Turned out my goggles fogged up...

    May just take a water sample to the pool store to see how many chemicals I need to add...

    Again, thanks to all, going to jump into my 92 degree pool, Vegas has been over 100 for a week now...

    Sure wish it were a little cooler, 94 degrees in the shallow end today. With temps heading to 113 this weekend, guessing it will heat up just a bit more. Maybe I could empty the ice maker into the pool, don't foresee that making much of a difference... Anybody ever tried to cool a pool?

    Running waterfalls, sprayers or solar at night will cool the pool. Lots of people have rigged up pvc fountains screwed into pool returns to make a sprayer to cool the water. It will also raise ph so monitor it.

    PVC screw-in fountain sounds like it would be a quick fix, anyone done this? Have a pic?

    Yup, thanks! Been googling since your post, discovered that a) the fountain should be easy; and 2) I need to build an outdoor shower.
