    My little science experiment

    yea, I won't be using a cover so that's my issue....we get great sun in the afternoons, only use the heater a few times a year just with company or to extend the season but it all leaves overnight. Like the idea of solar just don't know if it would really help much...or at least not help...

    How will "lake water" swimsuits affect my chlorine pool?

    thoughts on bathing the whole body or just fresh suits? We have been a little overboard showering and new suits before going from our green lake to our new pool, wondering if fresh suits are enough.
