The new pool

Just had to get one this year and they had this on sale at Coppel.   Normally $2500 pesos and was $2150 (200 dollars)  on an Internet special.   You can't buy them here in the winter and they are just showing up now.  Home Depot has them but only larger sizes and this is all I (my yard) can handle.  Later in the year they may be harder to find so why wait.   Kids are loving it already.

It's getting warmer and I feel summer coming.   The challenges will be the number of neighbor kids allowed and keeping it clean.   Chemicals, foot bath and running the filter pump after use.  Much easier, cheaper and less reponsibility than an in ground pool.   Now how to keep a small pool cool in the sun - a pool cover?

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
