When the construction company that I hired came out to do the concrete around my pool there was a miscommunication that led to the ladder mount not being set in the correct location. By the time anyone realized it, it was hardened to the point that it could not be moved much. For years I have had my ladder somewhat crooked, but solid. Last year when I was removing the ladder during closing, one of the eye hooks broke. I am sure that I could probably get away with using a few washers. However, I am wondering if this is my opportunity to fix this correctly.
I have read a few of the articles about core drilling, but I do think that this applies because the socket for the ladder is not really in the correct location. I could try the surface mount but I think that it would look worse.
I "think" that my only option here is to use a wet concrete saw and cut out a rectangle surrounding the bad mount and the area when it should be. I would then put a new mount in the correct location, connect the bonding wire, and repour the concrete. Does anyone have any experience with this? I am assuming that I have to put a bonding agent on the existing concrete so that the new pour bonds. Also I am wondering if it would be smart to drill some holes into the existing to extend some of the wire mesh?
