    Hello, I'm Guy.

    We live in San Diego County. We are currently remodeling our irregular shape 15k gallon pool. After trying to save up enough money to re-plaster and new equipment. I tried getting bids from Full service pool contractors. They all were way out of our price range. So I am under taking the task as a project manager. I have learned so much from your site so iI decided to join in and seek your expert advice. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Welcome, Guy!

    Do yourself a favor and be ready to protect that investment. Buy a proper test kit so it's waiting the day the pool is filled. You're the Project Manager, so startup is your problem. Do it right the first time.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    SWEET! I am so glad to see this as I LOVE a redo!

    How about starting a thread in "under const." and share a picture of your current pool and tell us what you hope to do!

    Re: Hello, I'm Guy.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.
    After removing the plaster from my pool I found this Crack is the side wall.(Sorry posted it sideways) My plan is to saw above the re-bar and to either side, then hammer chisel the rest of the way leaving the rebar in place. The crack is inline with a main drain and suction line replacement (upgrading to 3 inch) with 2 drains to avoid entrapment s. I had read in a similar post how Anchoring concrete was recommended, so I was planning on using it as a patch. Sound correct? Any and all help is appreciated..
