You can get a little plastic boat for in the pool. That way you could have it all. You would have to take the rubber ducky out because it would be overkill. Pool ethics!!

I think I'll ship you a seal. We have one that's making a nuisance of itself down at the fishing peer and he does neat tricks to get pieces of bait.

What else is a salt water pool good for and you'd really like this little guys big brown eyes.

Remove the ladder and put the winter cover on.

There you go. Pool winterizing 101. Used to cost me $180 to have someone do it. It cost me $56 for antifreeze and chemicals and I have 1/2 left over for next year.

Same process for my inground, except I first make sure the water is right (Ph, salt, chlorine,then add a bottle of polyquat algaecide) then drain her down, blow out the lines and plug em, then put the mesh safety cover on. Spring time she's back to full from snow.

I didn't go so far as to list the complete chemical steps, but I follow you Ron. I also added an anti-scale chemical to my mix.

By the way, the pool looks great!

I have heard that some use their motor home to live in. What a concept.

Unfortunately, I can't afford to retire till 5 years after I'm dead, so a house is still on the books. I love being a part time RV'r though.

I used to think like that, then woke up one morning and told DW that there was just going to be some names left in the hat when I go. Like a reverse lottery.
