The pool I never knew I never wanted
The balancing game I hate
It's completely my fault of course, I did not do my research. Turns out these things require work, a lot of work so they stay functional. In other words, pools are not plug and play as I once imagined. So, more often than not, I recent my pool. I look at it, see the issue it may have at the moment, too alkaline, too cloudy, etc, and let all the negative emotions fester.
The worse part is that you can't ignore it, if you do it gets worse, much worse. I've had to shock it more than 3 times since we've lived here and the process is annoying to say the least. Having a pool in florida in my opinion, at least these days, is a nightmare. It rains so much, you are constantly fighting mother nature so that she won't call the toads forth.
If you've never had to take care of a pool, trust me, you are lucky. It's not worth it, not if you are the one who is taking care of it. If you have to foot the chemical bills, do the stupid little tests, and troubleshoot the aging pump, that for sure is leaking somewhere.
Yes.... I wish nothing more than living in a place with no pool.... OMG, that would be so awesome! What was I thinking?
