    Has ANYBODY TRIED this?? If so, PLEASE COMMENT and give us your opinion / review of this project. I'd love to have my pool heated in the winter months when we get our visitors. No one wants to visit Arizona in the summer. I don't understand why, I love the 118 + degrees.


    this is a must have ♥

    I really like this effect. The big minus is the high frequency of refilling due to the wind blowing the water around and the size of the catchment pond.

Outdoor brick grill - this needs some sort of area to use as a work/prep station but food tastes so much better when cooked on a real grill like this with wood or charcoal. And the cooled wood remnants can be used to add to your compost pile with the ash being used on your vegetable garden as fertilizer - so this one is a two-fer!
