So apparently my pool is quite large and requires a lot of care (or so people think). Every time a guest asks how long it takes to care for my pool (which will decrease dramatically this season thanks to BBB), I tell them it's usually about an hour per week, and they are surprised when I say I find it very relaxing - especially skimming, brushing, and even vacuuming.
Am I odd because I enjoy gently brushing my pool walls? I can't be the only one! I'm not generally an "outdoorsy" type, but I take care of my lawn too and find that relaxing as well, and nothing feels better than a job well done.
