Summer Without a Pool

Household water usage from July 2013 (with a pool) to July 2014 (without a pool).

Household water usage from July 2013 (with a pool) to July 2014 (without a pool).

I removed my above-ground pool in March of 2014 and I couldn’t wait to see the difference in the water bill.

I was worried I would miss it once it was gone, but there wasn’t a single moment where I missed swimming in the pool more than I enjoyed not having to deal it. I didn’t realize how much emotional friction it had been causing between the guilt over how much water I was using (this is Texas, afterall) and worrying about keeping it functioning properly (I maintained it myself).

It helped that I put things in its place that I love so much more.

With and without the pool

Before and after. The view is so much better now.
