Brand new here, hailing from Canada. Alberta, to be exact. Edmonton, to be even more exact. Hopped on here because this is the third year I've had a small pool in my yard and I'm loving it. Hoping to upgrade to a more robust pool next year,and with a larger pool I'm sure will come more maintenance(I just had to tear down a little 12 foot Intex pool as it had an irreparable air leak in the ring-currently using the 8 foot back up "kiddie pool" to stay cool). BTW, I'm 55 with grown son and my friends think I'm nuts frolicking in a pool at my age. Pfft.
