First time poster here, have been lurking for about six months. We purchased a house in Pittsburgh last summer. The house came with a pool, it wasn't something we sought out, but my wife had one growing up, liked it and so now we have a pool. We have three boys so it should be well used.
The pool has been neglected. It's a cement in-ground pool with a vinyl liner. Neighbors say it was installed in the 1980s. At some point the plumbing started to leak, and the former owner of the house didn't want to spend the money to fix it. The solution was to run two pipes across the top of the cement, one for suction one for return. It was a poor solution.
I want to get this rehabbed. Pictures are below. Here's what I want to do.
1) Replace the liner
2) Tear out all the concrete on where the pool and fence are and then along the house.
3) Get the plumbing fixed
4) Re-concrete over the areas it was removed, install a simple channel drain to tie into a downspout (it's at the corner there already)
5) Relocate the pad to the other side of the fence and get it cleaned up
I've talked to almost everyone in Pittsburgh who does pools and most either do pieces of the project, but only one will do the entire thing. I want to run the quote by for sanity and see if I'm missing anything.
Seems like I'm limited to pictures on this post. I'll post followups with more pictures.
In terms of quotes:
~$4k for a new liner and liner holder
~$9000 for moving the pad, re plumbing everything, new concrete along the fence and house
A back of the envelope for this seems fairly reasonable, but I wanted to double check with the pool experts.
