    Last splash - Time to close the pool
    97 degrees today... and you're closing?

    Not me. Using my solar blanket to eke out at least another week or two. Water temperature today was 82ยบ ('cuz I left the blanket off several days in a row, foolish me.)

    Living in Texas and having a solar heater, I still have several weeks, if not mos of pool season... heh...

    But, 1 week of rain did run the water temp down to 78... YIKES... freezing when I got in...

    But, hopefully, the sun will come out soon to make it a better experience!

    That is either really refreshing, or just nuts!

    You guys do realize they make heaters for pool water, right?

    YES they do. Mine costs $4.50 per hour to operate, so one has to weigh the subtle pleasures of a heightened water temperature against the cold reality of budget-busting electric bills, bankruptcy and disgrace (in my own worrying mind, anyway)...
