If you have a Dream Pool, what would it look like? Would it be enclosed or no? If you have a Dream Pool already, please share pics!
My spouse and I have a Dream Pool in mind. I hope to heck we get to Florida before either one of us has health issues or dies! Yikes
I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!

Hopefully this pic will load when I submit this thread but this is the type of Dream Pool we would like to have and also be enclosed

Good question!




Kind of like this, only much bigger and with real tropical fish swimming in it and fake coral at the bottom (assuming the fish won't inherently make it unsanitary). I essentially want a mini reef in my backyard, the kind that would be conducive to daily snorkeling. And a hot tub next to it. Area surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and flowers, and bordered by sand. Will I ever get this? Well, not THIS year, that's for sure...

Doesn't hurt to dream. One thing you will find though, if you do your own work, after a few years of tending to year round maintenance, things tend to get much less elaborate.

Yours is absolutely gorgeous and what I would consider a dream pool. I would like someone else to do the maintenance for me though. With all of that lush foliage, there'd be leaves, dirt, and debris scattered about and in the pool for sure. Here are pics of the pool in the new house we are moving into April 7th. Only 8 more days to go and we cannot wait! It's nice that it has the screen enclosure too to keep bugs and leaves out and a nice large patio attached to it. Plus it has a jacuzzi/spa and a brand new heater (so we can swim year-round). Man...how I LOVE it here!!!! You are going to love living in Florida too - it's like a dream come true!!!

After being in the pool business for many years the last thing I would ever want in my yard again is a pool.
Let someone else enjoy pool ownership!
Ha ha!
