    A bored mind . . .

    . . . is a dangerous thing!

    The pool is a frozen block and will be so for at least another 6 weeks. There's not much else to do but scheme and what keeps bubbling up is a current generator. No, not electrical. Water current, like those Swim-X (tm) pools, you know?

    I wonder if they'd sell me just the pump. I wonder if I could rig enough PVC pipe to hang it over the edge on the oval end opposite the steps. I wonder if such a rig would blow out the pool within moments of making it work.

    Or maybe, hmmm. Maybe the jet parts from a jet ski could be adapted to make this work. My neighbors surely wouldn't object to the neverending scream of the high powered engine.

    I miss my pool!!!!!!

    Your right. My mind wonders too during the winter.

    I was thinking about putting in a solar heater for the pool this spring. But I would go one better. Under the solar panels I will put electric blankets so when night comes; the electric blankets will turn on and I could be warming the pool all night.

    I had no idea they offer these as after-market equipment. Thanks for the link. It's not likely to be mine but one can dream, right?
