Just as I predicted in my last post, that worthless old hose gave way today. When I drove in the driveway after an errand tonight, I was anticipating a fun frolic in my backyard pool. Instead, I noticed a flood of water streaming down the neighbor’s driveway. I knew it had to be hose failure on my filter since the neighbors do not water their lawn.
There is nothing so frustrating, disappointing and infuriating as hose failure at a time when you are so anticipating and relying upon the pleasure that hose will bring if it actually does what it is designed to do. But timing is everything! My hose failed just as I was anticipating a lovely evening swim. The filter now cannot do it’s job properly and the pool has lost 4 inches of water in just a few moments.
The hose spurted water in every direction completely flooding an entire area of my yard and my neighbor’s yard. I did not receive the relaxing, enjoyable experience of activity in my pool. Instead, I had to wait.
Now I am tense, crabby, irritated and actively searching for a longer flexible new hose! Breaking off and spilling out so do not work for me!
