No I did not send a PM. It was just a post on to the forum. Anyway.... good news update. It is 2pm here and I weighted the pool thermometer like you said right of the bottom in 4 1/2 foot water. Air temp it 94, water surface temp was 97 degrees again but.... 4 foot down it was only 86!!! Yaaay! I feel much better now! 10-12 degrees difference. Don't know what temp is out in 12 foot of water on the bottom but it must be good.
