    put in that pool

    They are teasing a freind's divorce history, and "put in that pool" is for the lawyer, but what does it mean? Does it mean he will install a pool or is it an idiom?

    -Friends
    489055 - Well, I guess we find
    489055 - a divorce lawyer.
    491691 - Well, I think.. I think
    491691 - Ross already has one.
    497063 - Yeah, that guy's finally gonna
    497063 - be able to put in that pool.

    502235 - Okay.
    503402 - Now, this one's free, right?
    503402 - Because you paid for the first two.
    508174 - Laugh it up, but the joke's on you...

    Re: put in that pool

    It could mean that the lawyer (that guy) will finally be able to build the swimming pool that he has wanted for a long time. He will be able to afford this, because he will make a lot of money from handling the divorce. The speaker is suggesting that the divorce will be very expensive.
