In 1996 we decided to take the "plunge" and get a pool. We had a lot of fun times, but between camp and boating, last year decided not to open the pool.
It seemed P and the Pugs were the only ones who had time to swim. The pool became more work than fun. Also, when the pool was installed we had issues with the side walls bowing out. It is an oval pool and we were told that it was a problem consistent with oval pools. Bull. The first two years we owned it, the installers put it up and took it down TWICE. This year we decided enough was enough. Take the pool down!
Day One consisted of draining the cover and then the pool itself....slightly stinky!
You can see in this pic how the wall was actually bowing out. It was same on other side and was actually pushing the deck. Day 2 - Bees discovered under top frame. All work halted for bee hive spraying.
Day 3 - Crazy how fast it came down! It was sort of sad for me...even sadder to have to help dismantle! The only creatures I saw were a frog and two toads. I really expected maybe a snake? or something else slimy? The parts will be taken to the scrapyard and made into cash!
PS I'm thinking we should just light the deck on fire?
