    Bye Bye Pool!

    After having it up for just over 2 months, I began dismantling it today, the first day of Autumn.

    I floated in it only 4 times, and had to Skim it, Sweep it, Vacuum it, Chlorine it, and Pump it many more times than that!

    Too little Fun and too much Maintenance!

    Anybody want a 10' pool? I'll have it packed in the boxes it came in, and it's yours if you'll come and pick it up. (You can have 3 of the smaller pumps.)

    No, Frank, this is my 4th above-ground pool.

    I had a 10', a 12', a 15; and this 10'.

    Holly, if I shipped it Across the Atlantic Ocean, it would probably cost me more than $20!:(

    @Holly, it was too much work for too little enjoyment!

    I just don't like the responsibility of the required maintenance.

    I wondered who might catch that! My one-track mind kept thinking back of a wonderful prime rib restaurant my first wife and I frequented back in Illinois named "Foree's".

    There isn't a family with kids who might really enjoy it? You could donate it to them!! That's what I would do. Drive around and find a family that looks like they could use a happy surprise. They would probably even come and get it.

    The families with kids already have an above-ground or in-ground pool.

    I know, cuz I live here.
