We finally have a pool to swim in!!!!!!!! Holy crap - it was a process and the entire time I was swearing and proclaiming how I never said I wanted a pool and how I should've gone with my gut on the fact that this thing was a deal breaker for this house . . . A freaking month of obstacle after obstacle . . . Luckily none of the issues required our money, just the poor owner's . . . And my time . . .
But now we have essentially a brand new pool with beautifully clear water . . . And after one day of having it . . . I can say with certainty that 1. I now feel able to open up a pool company with all of the shit I know about pools and 2. It was 100% worth the wait . . . And the kids definitely agree!
