When it's hot, take it all off to cool down!



It's really hot out there but nothing beats taking it all off and going for a swim! Ah the feeling of the hot sun and cool water on bare, unencumbered skin... there nothing like it!

The salt water system was definitely worth it. The water feel so smooth and silky. I'm amazed that I am able to comfortably open my eyes in the water. In traditional pools, I have to keep my eye closed otherwise I get itchy red eyes. This feels totally normal!

The solar heater is fantastic. Within one week of opening the pool in May, it heated the water to 27 degrees Celsius (about 80F) and yesterday, it exceeded 32C (90F) We had to turn it down. 100% of the heat was generated by the sun. No fossil fuels were harmed in making this heat!
