    Oops - pool is WARM

    We heated the hot tub two days ago and forgot to turn it off. It's been heating the whole pool for the past two days, whenever the pump was running. I just caught it and the pool is up to 93 degrees! The bright side is that it is supposed to cool off a bit this weekend but that shouldn't stop us from swimming.

    Leaving the heater on sounds like a common faux paux.

    As forgetful as I am, I'm thinking when I turn mine on (assuming that it's ultimately completed one day), that I'll have to create some kind of visual indicator that it's on... something complicated like a red cup sitting on top of the TV...

    A friend of ours heated his pool one day in December for a get together, so the kids could swim... found it still on 2 weeks later... ouch!

    I've left the sprinkler on too many times to think I won't do the same, or worse.

    Meanwhilel... buy stock in your local gas provider...

    I be running around yelling, "Who left this red cup on the TV???????"

    I had to register just to say that.

    My Spa seems to have a "drinking problem" some nights, so official policy is check everything the next morning. Including looking for stray articles of clothing the Grandkids might find suspicious out there.
