Excellent, will purchase.Glad to hear! I just had a lovely dip...pool is 95, dome air now 57 and outside air got up to 24 after being in single digits overnight and low teens this morning
For top ups, I use NOT regular or the retractable flex hoses, but a new kind of soft but not retracting type. Easy to carry inside, store, keep warm and flexible til needed.
Here's a link if you're interested...note that a few reviewers complain about developing leaks...these are lighter weight, not to be dragged through sharp gravel etc. IMHO, but for my purposes, work great. Eg. I run regular heavy duty hose up the terrace or thru stone to the bed at te far end of the pool, and in summer, use this one for walking around to water the patio planters. Never kinds, easy to carry, etc. and for winter, is perfect for running out to the pool.
