Hi, first post.... Northern Kentucky here;
So, I just viewed a property with an awful concrete in-ground pool. Just a rectangle, roughly 16x30 (?). Way too murky to really even tell depth at deepest point, appears to be about 3ft or so at one end; may be sharp or gentle slope. It quite obviously hasn't been opened for at least a couple seasons and I didn't even see a cover in the garage or anywhere else. It is concrete, and the edges are starting to crack away from the surrounding concrete.
Does it even sound like something worth even trying to get up and running?
How involved is filling it/ capping it/ making it go away? And is that expensive compared to the best-case scenario repair cost?
I wish I had taken some pics of the current condition, the listing pics for the property don't show it any closer than just that it is there. The realtor even said upon initial contact it's the largest negative regarding the property. He, as well as the owner say to have no knowledge of its actual condition other than "it's ugly and needs either a lot of work or to be filled in and slabbed over"....
Any advice besides just going back there with a pro? Any pro's able to ballpark a range, or offer some advice on what red flags to watch for when I do start asking for repair or elimination estimates?
I wish I had more info... it's raining and we didn't want to stay outside. (y'know; dudes... neither of us had an umbrella )
