The pool, and I cannot wait for it to be warm enough to swim

 The pool had been cleaned and treated, once, during the foreclosure process, but was again dirty and full-of-leaves by the time I moved in. The floating, solar cover had not prevented leaves falling in.

Now it's clean and blue again and the chemicals are balanced. Bad news: there is a leak somewhere which needs to be tracked down as soon as possible. It does not appear to be at the filter or pump--that would be too easy--but must be somewhere in-between or even worse, at the bottom.

But it's a really nice pool. About eight feet deep in one part, long enough to swim properly, and with a "spa" which can (if I win the lottery) be heated separately from the main pool for winter use. Right now it's waiting for summer to provide the heat.
