My wife got her wish, a house with a pool. I got what I expected, trouble. Neither of us is particularly excited about the magnitude of the pool.
I think we've already tracked down the approximate location of a fairly significant suction side leak under concrete decking using a mechanic's stethoscope. I can see that at least some of the pressure side plumbing is copper, whereas some of the suction side looks like schedule 80 grey pvc. The skimmers appear to have been replaced or repaired evidenced by cuts in the concrete decking.
Not sure exactly what the pool's structure is, but it has at least one layer of fiberglass that appears to have been sloppily applied.
It has the old Swimquip light well which I am waiting on a backordered J&J LED replacement for.
There is an inground spa with a 2" overflow into the pool that I would like to fill in.
In a perfect world, I'd make the pool 15x30, 9' deep, and move all of the plumbing to a new location with lots of control flexibility. For now, I just want fix the plumbing leaks so we can vacuum it!
