2017. The first year for owning an inground pool and the first year for owning a pool period in quite a while. What a great year it was! From having friends and family over for impromptu grill outs and swim parties to having a mega event when we hosted our niece’s after wedding pool party. The common theme at every get together was just taking some time to reconnect with friends and family, to take some time to just relax. And after a year of pool ownership I totally get why Eastgate Pools builds so many inground pools for grandparents. To get the kids back home is a real treat, and to get more grandparents time, well that is awesome. My wife and I are practically counting the days until the pool is back open and we can welcome friends and family to spend time in and around the pool. Come on spring!
