    how to enclose my pool ... ideas?

    HI ALL

    since you guys have creative bright thoughts ... I thought I would ask.

    I want to make a cheap screen room type thing to go around my pool. I have a 100' roll of screen 9' tall screen and a huge tarp ... the question is ...

    any ideas on how I could do this on a low budget?

    PVC pipe seems like the most viable option. Basically, you just build a house shaped frame with 9 ft. sides (for screen) then secure the tarp to the roof part. This would give you sun protection and bug protection in the summer.
