I'm so excited! My husband and son are gone to the store to buy a 15x 4ft. pool!
This will make the Summer fun instead of miserable!

Well, I just had to bubble over somewhere!

Bliss :Hahaha:

Thanks, y'all!

We've had pools like this before but we always had a flat piece of land to put it on! Here in the Virginia hills, we will have to level a spot. Does anyone have any experience/advice for this?

[b]Cool, Holly! What a great way to enjoy the hot summer days. We used to have a pool in the house I grew up in. I believe my father had to level the spot when we were putting it in also. I'll ask him for some advice on it and see what he says. /b] Wave

Wow! That's awesome!

I don't have any experience in leveling the ground. . .My father did level lots of ground as a contractor. I'll ask him too for a little help. . .

Thanks! We're thinking of hauling in dirt because the ground is so hard and rocky!

We finally have the pool up and filled with a couple inches of water! Micah and I had a blast playing in it today! ROTFL My arms feel like they are going to fall off from all the games we played! I think it's going to be a great way to get in shape. We have to wait for the fire department to come and fill it up the rest of the way because our well can't handle it!

It took us most of the day to fill our pool. But we was using a water hose. Huh? I'm glad you are enjoying the new pool. grinsmiley

Because of the pool, I actually had to turn the air conditioning down today! How fun!
