    Greetings from UpState South Carolina

    Found this forum while searching for "pool care" Like what have been reading so far and think I,ll be spending alot of time here!

    We bought a house last sept. with an inground pool in need of repair, Had the pool guy and he said in over 20 years he never seen anything like this cover the Bank had put over the pool, So i figure I,ll give you pic of what a Bank's idea of a safty cover is (the house was in forecloser) I have since removed this "cover" it was A pain! New liner should be installed in a few weeks and I hope to someday have my pool/yard looking as nice as some of the pics I have seen on here

    Was that wire used to keep critters out or keep critters in?
