Grandson has been asking to have the pool set up. It was hot and humid, so I spent an hour or so prepping the area to set up the 1 year old pool. Once I rolled it out, ( :mad2: ) looks like no pool this year, so, we went fishing. :dancingbanana:

Those were the only two we caught, and he wanted to keep the bigger one for a pet, even names it "Spikey". Took some doing to coax him to let it go. :bounce:

Yep, around here, we have to roll stuff like that up, put it in a burlap bag and hang it from the rafters.

I bet a tire patch would fix that.  I've seen a rubber tarp pool with tire patches all over it.

It rained almost all day Sunday, and looks like on and off T-storms this week. I hope to be able to roll the whole thing out and see the extent of the damage. I know of 3 big holes, one fist size. Don't know if I can find a tire patch big enough. I'll look around to see what kind of patch kits are available.

 I bet a piece of rubber inner tube would work, too.  Just as long as the rubber cement is good, it would last until next year. 

 

There I go, suggesting things the redneck way... :rolling:

Well, the Wife said I needed to find something to get the Grandson and company out of the house (and her hair). I went to town to look for the elusive item. Caballas, Wal-Mart, Lowes, and Academy. 

New pool...., but is labor intensive to set up, takes 2 days to fill, and is high maintenance.

Swing set... Park is full of them less than a mile from here, kind of old school.

Croquet, bean bag toss, and a few others looked at... then I came across this. 

My selling point (2 minuets to set up) actually takes like 10, but the wind was blowing. Empties once the blower is turned off. I will pick up a large plastic tub to store this in. Hope it lasts a couple years or until they out grow it.

We can sit under the white waterfall / shower and drink a cold one. I'll be getting another pool for next summer. Was bummed out trying to set the old one up. PS. before it went to the dump I was able to flip it over and let the wind lift it up to drain the rain water, looked like a dozen or more small holes, and a couple larger ones. If I tried to fix this I would have been draining and filling every couple days.

A cold one under a cool spray sounds relaxing.
