    Temptaker,
    Thanks for that story! I have a friend that used to be a conservation agent. He always said he could tell a group of fire fighters long before he entered the camp. He said they always had they best set up from everyone around. Aside from the tell tale P.W. near the fire, he mentioned generators, full sized refrigerators, (usually holding the keg...the food was stored in coolers), and so on!

    Hey Silver, after you setup your pool, get the kids cooling off in it. Then have your wife read these posts for comedy value... and to let her know that we really do want your kids to have as much fun this summer as we do ours.... matter of fact, you buy the beer and we'll probably show up to help get it setup.

    Default How many firefighters does it take to make a pool?

    This thread really needs to be saved in perpetuity for future generations of crust-wannbes. I have to say that I have heard some of the scariest engineering feats here on this thread. Like I've always heard it said, if you locked a firefighter in a room with two ball bearings, he'd break one and lose the other.

    It may require a rocket scientist to build a better mouse trap, but leave it to us to re-invent a hole filled with water.

    If gave two firefighters an anvil, they'd spend all day trying to read the instructions, then put it back broken, without telling the next shift!

    Of course, the damn thing had no moving parts when they started.

    It's gets better... when we have the hot tub on the house boat, we have the coil sitting on a propane burner to heat the water.

    Who was it that said "firefighters are a jack of all trades".
