    Just put 150 lbs of Ice in the pool

    It's been so hot that the pool temp is in to 90's...

    Heh....

    Depends on the Air temp as well..

    I'm liking 88 degrees... But not much warmer.

    If I need to cool the pool, I just run the filter at night to dissapate some heat through the solar heater I made...

    Just need to stop calling it a pool and rename it the worlds biggest hot tub!

    Don, I'm just curious, how much does 150 pounds of ice lower the water temperature?

    No enough...the pool holds something like 5 or 6000 gallons of water and it dropped temp by 3 or 4 drgrees

    Yep, hot.
    My wife has a small pond I bought her. She keeps, and lovingly tends, some goldfish and Koi in it.
    This morning she found them all dead. The heat must had done it. We always have hot summers but this one went over the top for the fish.
    Ironically, they survived an exceptionally cold winter when the pond froze solid.

    That seems pretty small for a pool. What are the dimensions?

    Few years back I got one of those Fountains that attach to the water return. The spraying not only seems to be enjoyable by the kids, when you let it spray all night, the pool is cooled down. It do evaporate water and require an additional refill, (although the couple inches of rain we got today did a good deed on the pool level but screwed up the chemistry...
