I'm wondering if it's a good idea to replace the plumbing at the equipment pad. I've lived in the house for about 2 years and the pool was neglected for a long time. I had some work done last year too so i'm wondering if I should have this done. Right now, I just have a sand filter and pump for a 12k gallon pool. There are 3 valves, a ball valve that goes to the surface "cooler" (recently added - pretty new), an old gate valve that doesn't seem to work, and on more valve that I am not sure does anything or not. I'm trying to do a little bit of work each year to keep up on things until I can afford to have the whole pool redone. Would it make sense to replace the plumbing with new pipes and valves with an eye on the future? (eventually i'd like to add a SWG and a heater)
Would anyone know a ballpark figure of how much this would cost if necessary?
I found an old picture with some of the piping from a problem I had before (ignore the water pooling - that is fixed ), you'll notice that its pretty old and messed up looking.
Thanks for the input!
