I'm thinking it's me. If we're counting pools you filter, and not simply a wading pool. After a couple of summers of using one of those fragile inflatable pop-up pools, I decided to go heavy duty with one that will last a long time. I'm the only one who uses it. I can work on a tan and cool off by completely submerging myself. Can't do laps in it though. ;) Anyone else have a similar pool?

Here is my little chill pool I’ve been using up until we finally got the ground prep done for my 18’ round Intex Ultra Frame! It also gave me a LITTLE bit of practice with water chemistry :) I’m so ready to get my big pool up tomorrow! Here is my ghetto fabulous kiddie pool I’ve been using to sunbathe up until now lol don’t judge me hahaha. Now I can’t wait to throw this sucker away lmao

EDIT: I didn’t realize you said with a filter lol clearly I do not have one with that pool but I do use some tiny 1” chlorine pucks in my little floater thing. I’m not using those in my “real” pool but for a 250 gallon pool, they more than do the trick.

This was our starter pool too. In triple digits it didn’t matter how small it was. It was wet and 55 degrees with hose water. It was huge to the toddler kids and they squealed just as loud in this one.

In 1976 or 77 my dad built us a "pool". It was about 8' x 4', the shell was wood, the liner was black visqueen. I have no idea how he made it not leak, and maybe it did and I didn't know it. I was like 6 or 7 at the time. I remember staples held the visqueen in place... There was no filtration or water treatment whatsoever. I think we and the neighbor kids got to enjoy it for about a week. Then... well you know what happened after that.

I actually just meant further apart. So that the suction side is pulling more of the uncirculated water rather than some of the water that has just returned to the pool.
