Summer begins at our home with the official Pool OPENING!! We usually have the pool opened Mid-May so that by "summer time" the water is warm enough for swimming. With the seasons going from winter to hazy, hot and humid in 60 seconds the water warmed up quickly.
Pawsitively patient and vigilant, Petey waits for Ken and George to arrive.
Petey's (and our) patience is rewarded, here come Ken and George
The men systematically pull and fold, and pull and fold until......
There is a neat bundle
|Work continues with the removal of the bolt-secured springs that hold the safety cover in place.|
|The water is crystal clear, and only a few worms on the bottom of the shallow end. What a relief! George unplugs the intake and out put outlets|
|and Ken readies primes the pump that runs the filters.|
|The water bags are rolled up and the ladder and stairs are put in place|
|Then the diatomaceous earth (the filtering agent), chlorine and algaecide is added|
When all the prep work is done, it's time for the fun to begin. While I was told the water was 'fine', the clenched-jaw smile makes me a bit doubtful. However...... Come On IN the water's FINE!!!!
