There was a shipment from somewhere in pool supply land that allowed for two new pool-bottom vacuum tubes (public pools tend to not use robots on the account of wily nature of the tubes in that they like to tie themselves into knots), and four new, glossy, red rescue tubes that are ergonomically soothing. How so? Your elbows don't sag down into the foam when you rest them on the new tubes. And there is something about the fact that they are- new. New plastic scent, sharp corners and crease- free, and 'GUARD' in ghostly white bold print, as if they had never hit the water with the weight of a person before.
