Well, it's the Fall, and we're back to dealing with the possibility
of snow. Still, we're trying to get out to the Garden to see wht we can do with
our Landscaping. These Pools are just the right size for an Outdoor or Indoor
Pool, too. I ordered one of these Endless Pools DVDs so I can easily show Dwight
how the Endless Pool might work for us... The DVD or Video is completely FREE,
and they have Great Ideas for Decks & Sunrooms,
too. Request the Endless Pools Free Information Kit complete
with a DVD or Video by
