I know the concrete on my decking had small pieces of fiberglass or similar substance within it. I was told it was to reduce hairline cracks. Funny thing was the fact the concrete had a fuzzy feel until the glass was worn away.

We had just got out of a much warmer pool.

And an even fewer who knew of what went into it.

Neat stuff!
I didn't know that.

With the humidex, it's well over 100F here today so I'm really wishing I had a pool, but the pool season here is maybe 4 months, so it's really hard to justify the cost. Not that that stops any of my wealthier neighbors.

Mostly I end up swimming in creeks and lakes around my cabin. But's that's a few hours away and isn't doing me much good right now when I need a plunge the most

Nice pool Ken. Good thing your daughter likes you

If they are heated you can go all year? Just a thought.

Nice looking pool there Ken. I'm jealous but then again I'm jealous of anyone getting to swim while sit here sweating in 100?+ temps.
