The pool is open.
It had a huge water table below the vinyl liner. We have been with this company since we put the pool in for our kids and myself in 1975.
They came yesterday and took off the cover, what a mess. The water had floated the liner out again just like last year. This time the owner who is an amazing man came up with another idea of his own he bought a super pump and in 15 minutes the guys watched as the liner went back.
They were really in awe of what they had done. When they are excited about their work you know you have a couple of good guys working for you. I told them my hands can no longer push the liner in place so they put it in for me. I usually get in to the pool and that way I can do it, but hanging over the edge gets to my knees and mostly it's fear of toppling into the murky water.
The new TV Satellite dish kept switching off. At first we thought it was us but yesterday I called and told them it is less than a week and we have needed 2 service calls they said things like it was new to us but we will come.
When the man looked at it DH said he thought the DVR box was the problem, OMG he was right and I could see he knew it, with a big grin on his face.
This technician found faulty connections and he added 5 more wires to the back of the TV so we can use the color coding and also if something goes wrong we know which one might be loose.
The TV appointment was 8am till noon. He arrived at 8:30am, how convenient as soon as he left I called the eye Dr .
This week my eyes have been a problem. I had a cataract on a very lazy eye and now it is stronger than the original good eye so I am seeing double, I called and asked for an earlier appointment it was 10 am they said 1pm.
I noticed the pool guy had left some equipment so I called and asked them to come to pick it up. They were there by 11am and my appointment was 1pm I was sure I would have to drive myself. I told them I would have to leave by 12:30pm and mentioned I would prefer DH to drive me.
They really hustled to get it dome. DH fixed Tuna sandwiches while I was the sidewalk foreman. I could spot all the places the liner comes out so they did it all at my request and they did it fast and well.
They took their tools and as soon as they left DH and I were on the road to the eye DRS 25 miles away.
It all got done and we had another hot chicken on salad greens and some home made soup.
After supper I weeded the front yard and DH set up the filter to run. That old pool so far is giving me hope the back yard will look nice and be used by the grand's.
What a positive day it has been. NEVER A DULL MOMENT AROUND HERE.
DH and I knew the pool man was coming at noon till 4pm.
