My husband came home from work early yesterday afternoon. During his lunch hour, he ran around to all the major chain stores and compared prices of new pools. We didn't have enough money to purchase another metal pool because the prices have sky-rocketed since we purchased the pool several years ago. He purchased a 48"x 18' inflatable pool. The children were so excited!
My 11 year old put together the ladder and the filter-pump together himself.
It took several hours to fill the pool up. This was the end result of yesterday's efforts.
Although the water will be a little cold today. We plan on spending the day in the pool to recover from the heat.
