Now I remember!  I've come close to that when mowing around my pool over the years.  I put some good scrapes on mine!

Really Jim ? I was expecting to see Scott (Cat385B) to bring that up again, but not you.

Now look, the wise guys are crawling out of the woodwork.

I love abive ground pools. I have made a ton of money taking them down and scraping them. I also have sold a lot of sand filters and pool pumps to people. Best one I ever took down was made out of aluminum 2x4s. I made a killing off that thing.
