No heater, no skimmers, no cleaning, easy to cool down with a bag of ice.

When I go home for fourth of July weekend I am guessing I am going to have to siphon out half and fill it back with pool water to get it back to a reasonable refreshing temperature.

Up in MA. Got the dogs in the pool Monday after work, water was 75. Still a little chilly for my liking but they loved it.

Consistently lowers the pool temp by 4 degrees. Shoot me a pm if you need more detail.
obviously there are many factors, but fountains will definitely make a huge difference. The key is only running them at night when the air is cooler than the water. I've got 8* consistently out of this product

Quit going to the pool store and asking them to sell you things...

Go over to the Trouble Free Pool website and start reading...including the pool school section. Its like the THT of pools.

You likely aren't maintaining a proper level of Chlorine in your pool...once you have a proper test kit to test your water yourself, they'll get you straight. My water has been crystal clear since I started the BBB method they teach there...and I hardly spend anything on the pool.

I agree. If you are treating phosphates then you are doing it wrong. I have been following the trouble free pool process for a year and the pool is perfect and it costs much, much less to take care of. Get the test kit like mentioned above.

I had a request to post a few pics of my home-made fountains.

My engineer friends say that running them during the heat of the day is most important. They explained the science, but I think I was drinking at the time. You can literally feel the difference in temp from where the water exits the fountain and where it lands in the pool.

1. Unscrew the eyeball nozzle from your pool return.
2. Take it with you to your hardware store.
3. Get an adapter. One end will thread into your existing return. (Aprox 2"). The other end will be a smooth hole that will accept the size you want to make your fountain. I think mine is 1".
4. Get you several feet of pvc material. (again, I THINK mine is 1")
5. Get you (2) T's, 2 caps, and a ball valve
6. Cut, drill holes, assemble.
7. None of my parts are glued together. Makes it easy to clean if needed and/or modify.

8. The valve allows you to adjust the flow going through the fountain and/or going directly into pool. You will want this feature.

I did something similar for a fountain but used one of these with power nozzles attached to it.
