I'm new here and have been trying to read up (using my phone app) but am having trouble finding things, such as Pool School. When I put it in the search I just get thread postings with those words included in them. I know I need to start there, but moving on..... I have a pool that's been unattended for 3-4 yrs (no cover). Swampy greenish-black with debris. Last time it was clear there was a small silver dollar sized bubble in the plaster in two places (several feet apart). I've checked around regarding a drain, acid wash and fill with possible plaster patching, but instead have been told I must re-plaster. Prices vary from $6k-$10k and up for special finishes. I've also been told that a plain white plaster job has a warranty of six months, but for $2-3k more I could get a 10 yr warranty for a special finish. My question is should I proceed with the drain and acid wash/re-plaster or try to clear up the water with chemicals first to see what damage there is to the plaster? Is that even possible to bring back swampy water to clear? I don't know the size of my pool other than its 10ft at the deep end (is there a way to calculate?). My pump was in working condition at the time we stopped using it but I've been told that must be replaced as well. I don't want to turn it on with the water being swampy, so I don't even know. Not sure which direction to go in, invest $10-15k or just fill it in. Please help!
