After several razor cuts and many busted up knuckles my pool is up and running. I still have to replace a hose and a hookup part but other than that everything is running smoothly. The kids swam in it today for a couple of hours but had to get out cause of a lightning storm. I was happy to see that all of my kiddos still know how to swim. Now to read the meter and pay for the water. YIKES!! whats the going rate for 18000 gallons of water these days?
