I had it done 12 years ago when I was 30. I have noticed no degradation in my vision in the 12 years hence. I'm sure the lasers are even more precise now.
Best money I ever spent. I hated dealing with contact and glasses. Too bad most insurances won't pay for it.
ETA: I also am a bit more ...

Same thing happened to me two summers ago. I ended up replacing the entire motor/pump, and took the opportunity to buy a higher efficiency motor. Bought it online at PoolSupplyWorld.com.
You might want to look into buying a variable speed motor if you think it might save you on energy costs....

If you can wait, I would suggest waiting until the 2015's come out later this year. The 2015 is a complete redesign, so I would expect the 2014 prices to get slashed big time when the 2015's start hitting the lots. I would expect 10K mark-offs....
| Music Board|| re: The new Jack White album. - DrewTheEngineer on 6/25/14 at 9:55 am|
My thoughts ... the new album is very good, and is tighter, more blues-ey, and harder rocking than Blunderbuss. Blunderbuss seemed to be all over the map as far as musical styles go. It's hard to say which one is better as they are both good. White is definitely at the top of his game right now. ...

I recently downloaded this, mostly to hear the Brendon O'Brien remix of the entire album. Pearl Jam has stated that they never really liked the way the original album sounded, and this remix was an attempt to get closer to their vision.
Wow, is all I can say. Listening to the remixed version of...
