Finally a solution to slippery vinyl covered steps

Vinyl covered steps have been a slip concern since they were first installed before there were any other options like plastic, or fiberglass models. With recent trends consumers are looking for vinyl pools which look more like concrete pools. So more vinyl covered steps are being sold with pattern over the step for the "look".

Pool Builders Supply Open House

Well, the sun was out and the weather was warm, but despite that we had a great turnout for our first Open House in close to ten years.

How would you sell...a helicopter?

How many of the men out there have a remote control Helicopter or Car? How many of the women have spouses who have one?

 

Last weekend there was a new addition to my household: The SYMA S107 Gyro Metal Frame Coaxial 3 Channel Indoor Ready to Fly Helicopter. It reminds me of a Dragonfly -- one that has been hired by the FBI for a reconnaissance mission. It is quite fun.
