Wife and kids have been on me to get a pool and my answer will always be the same...

We have a 42' island we do not need a pool. Besides I enjoy taking care of the boat .... cleaning a pool (altough they say they would do it... never would happen) ranks way up there with getting a root canal and blowing up an engine...

Word to the wise... Get a good contractor with references. Be prepared for a mess in the yard until the project is completed. If you plan on this year, do it now, as the project could take 4 months or more.

Here is a before and after.

Lp,
Coming from someone who has both, it's better when somebody pees in your pool rather than your boat!! Go for it!!

Sounds like my story.Wife had to have it,never uses
it. The kids use it at the begining of summer,then
get bored. I hate the [email protected] thing. Nothing but a
pain in the a$$. One more thing that I dont have time
to take care of.
