Ok, I knew off the bat to:
- upgrade my pool filter and sell the inefficient one in the pool kit
-buy a solar cover
-buy heavy duty tarps to use in addition to the crappy one in the kit.
I also knew that we would need to do something about a ladder. We are hoping to hold off until next year, but does anyone have any recommendations for a pool ladder that is fairly sturdy? Would really like one that has steps that flip up.
