We still had part of the Sam's Club/Walmart gift cards leftover, and I found this above-ground swimming pool on sale at Walmart. It is 42" deep, and 15' across, so it will be quite a bit larger than the old one we have had for several years now. It was regularly almost $350; but was on sale for $200, so a good savings, and should last us a long time. We have been enclosing in the area outside of the back door to be more private with the bamboo fencing along the front, and the back part of the yard is pretty private anyway; so this is where we are going to set up the new swimming pool. Swimming is (for me) a part of our fitness plan to take care of our health, and improve our physical condition, so this is for more than just enjoyment, although that is certainly a large part of the reason to get the new pool. I am not physically able to climb up the ladder and down the other side to get in and out of this deep of a pool; but Bobby will build a small raised deck that I can get on, and then use the ladder to step into the pool. We go to the fitness center every other day and I swim there; but with the larger pool, we can also swim more at home, too. We are still deciding what to do with the old , smaller pool. Possibly, we can use that to raise some backyard fish in. I have seen articles where people raised catfish using just a 55 gallon drum; so if that is possible, then the swimming pool should be even better.
