Oh, yes. Add a diving board and/or slide and watch it go up even more.

My vote is for a inground pool crooks. Better looking imo then above ground. Can get a nice flow out of the house on to the patio then right into pool(one level). Easier to clean unless you have a deck around the entire above ground pool.
Thanks Rocs.

I'm a little spooked by the Taxes.
I know TOB has been heavy on Google earth looking for ways to cover the nut.

Does anyone have a kidney fiberglass?

I was in one last week and it was nice.


Crooks

My favorite pool is someone elses pool. No maintenance, liability or tax increases. Pools are like pickup trucks and boats. You don't need your own if you know people that have one.

What about September through May? No swings, forts, digging, etc., things you can't place on the front lawn.

One woman's yard is pool, hot tub, all sorts of pagers an planters, decking...it's huge. She's on .75 acre with a manicured front yard. Her youngest child is 6 -- I feel badly for the kid. One friend has a pool and backyard out of a high end magazine. Again, no place for her children. Another friend's yard strikes a good balance between pool and play area.
