Last year brought some drastic changes to our everyday life. One of the most significant ones came early in the year when families received “Stay-At-Home” orders in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19. Our normal routines were upended, and new ways of going about our everyday life had to be established.

Families had to find creative ways to entertain their children. Amidst all the craziness we learned a valuable truth. Nothing beats vacationing in your own backyard. Thankfully our pool’s answered the call, and we are grateful for this. This is the reason for February is “Love Your Pool Month” at Texsun Pools.
