I would hope not, it's my back yard!

"Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1Timothy�4:7-8)

"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).

Yes, above ground, 18 x 34. I've learned how to run flex pipe up the hill and connect solar heating units to the pump. A must to warm it up some. It's a bit of work, but do like it!

Yes. I get some great exercise in it. Unfortunately, our pool is not heated, and even in Florida, if a pool is shaded during most of the day, it gets pretty cold. During the early winter months our pool isn't in the sun enough to keep it warm enough. I did start getting back in it last week though. It feels pretty cold at first, but once I get to moving in the water, it's fine.

No, but often wish I did. Then again, I'd be the one who has to clean it....so maybe not.

I wish! Our back yard is a hill, so it's hard for our kids to even get out there and play. We spend way more time in the front yard than in the back.

An above ground, but we didn't open it last year. We will probably take it down this year. We mainly had it for our kids growing up and our youngest is 21 and she is a beach girl.

I've wanted a pool my whole life! Finally have one & I love it!
We moved into a house last spring, with an inground pool.
The daily upkeep is easy, Skim it in the morning. Test the water at night & add the required chemicals. It takes about 30 minutes, total.

Nope, opted to not buy a house with one..didn't feel like the upkeep!

I had one aboveground for 12 years and was glad to get rid of it. I am color deficient and could not do any testing so my hubby had to do everything for it.
