Yally, have you tried a solar cover for the pool-makes it warm enough to enjoy though not as warm as a heater-you can probably pick one up used maybe even on ebay-even if it isn't a perfect fit for your pool it will warm it up.

There is a gym near my home with 2 pools - one for arthritic patients. They keep it at 80-something. I had a free pass to go for a week, it was SOOOO nice!

camama- great reading a post of yours again.... i missed you!!!!

sj i do have a solar cover and usually once the pool has been heated we can pretty much keep it in the high 70's with sun. dont forget we have fall, winter, spring and one week in july in these parts! lol
our pool is rather large L shape and 9 feet deep also so we would need a heat wave to take the winter chill off it but i agree solar is a better way to go- just never warm enough for my liking. but with fuel prices i dont think i want to fork out several hundred dollars to heat a pool!

well heres to swimming everyone......~~~~ ^0 ~~~~ not certain that is a good visual but it was fun trying lol

Good to be back! I've missed you guys!

I wonder if I could get a jacuzzi for my arthritis and use it as a medical write-off?

Hmmm, if I could do that - maybe they can pro-rate your electric bill to heat the pool as a medical write-off??!!! WOuldn't that be cool! tongue
