We moved into a house with a pool and have spent quite some time getting the pool up and running as it wasn't taken care of by the previous owners. We have just about everything up to standards except for the skimmer. We used a leak detection company which identified the leak (which is under a slab of concrete, unknown depth) ~3 ft underground. The skimmer pipe is also roughly 8-10 inches from the pool edge. The more I stare at this...the more I wonder if I can do it myself. Would it be feasible for a DIYer to tackle this kind of project?
My main thoughts/concerns are...
-Renting an appropriate concrete saw and the associated costs
-Determining depth of said concrete
-Causing damage to the pool structure being so close to the pool edge
If it helps anyone, we are currently running 100% drain, skimmer net on the surface, Dolphin S300 cleaner ran a few times a week.
Thanks in advance for the help!
