Hi, I'm in a middle of renovating area around the pool .The pool is old but works fine. This is my third year with it. It's 10-20 years old .I'm not sure. I've removed the old ugly wood decking around it and now have a choice of just replacing it with composite decking (which is easy) or pour concrete and put a granite on it (which is beautiful and goes with nearby patio. I'd like to do a granite but concerned with accessibility of pipes under it. The underground pipes are fine now, but who knows how long they gonna hold without need of repair.
I understand that if I put decking it would be much easier to dig stuff if needed vs removing concrete.
Any insight is appreciated.
