No just the screen that comes with the enclosure.The bottom panels are made from the heavy duty screening called "pet screen"to thwart dogs ,cats, possums etc.

Yes the blue you see is the pool.Little more work for filter when the blossoms shed.Usually during the cooler years it is empty.Since the kids are all grown up and flew the coop I am constantly asking wife to fill it in and get real serious.I swim in the ocean not in chemicals.Half my neighbors just stare at thier pools!Waste of money in electric and maintenence.

I'm ready to do a taste test of all of them Kurt...

I don't know why I noticed...? It made me laugh when I saw you had one shoe/croc on and one off.

I hope it's a funny story...
At another forum, it became a running joke to make sure you had one foot in the pictures you posted.
Maybe you've started something...
