This may be an off the wall question but here goes. Our pool is big; too big. We inherited it when we bought the house. The amount of maint. and expense is not worth it for two people in New England.
Is there any way to modify it to make it shorter/less deep? I know it sounds weird but the alternative is to destroy it and rebuild or turn it into a large flowerpot. PS I just put in 60 pounds of "stuff" to raise the hardness to the minimum level. Enough already!
