One of the things we planned loooong before we even bought a house was to get a pool. When house hunting we mostly looked at houses with pools and some without that had room to get one built. House prices are not affected much by a pool since people are quite divided as to their value. Seems a lot of people think the maintenance far outways the perks. We knew all along however we would get a pool even if the house we bought didn’t already have one installed.
And then we feel in love with, AND bought a house without a pool, and with no room for one.
Introducing the Splash Pool.
Apologies, did you think we actually had one built?
This one IS built. By our own hands. Took all of 30 minutes to get it up and then an additional hour to fill it halfway.
It’s been in use two afternoons so far and is a massive hit with our two youngest family members (that would be our daughter and my husband).
Our property is all sandstone so a future in-ground pool is not too likely to happen unfortunately. For now this is it. At least this sucker can easily fit 4 sitting adults (and if full the water level would go up to armpit level) and we can also stand up straight under the canopy, no hunkering down.
It wasn’t exactly what I had in mind when I was thinking of becoming a pool owner…
I’m off to eBay some trashy inflatable drink holders. Flamingos anyone?
