Long time lurker in the forums and finally got the nerve toraise my hand. I moved into a new home last year with a beautiful pool in the Bronx in New York. Itís very rare to have a pool in the area so we thought itwas very special.
The woman whom we bought the house from hadnít done anymajor work to the pool in probably 30 years. Despite this, the pool was in verygood condition. It has a bluestone surface that looks very pretty but is prettyrough. The kids ended up with a bunch of little cuts.
At the end of last season we decided to do a resurfacing.Our pool guy (the same one the woman was using) recommended a tile borderaround the pool and then a marble dust finishing of the rest. He said weíddrain the pool and do the work in the Spring (maybe March or April).
The pool didnít end up drained until about three weeks about(early June). Then the mason failed to show multiple times. Today I finallygot fed up and canceled the project and started refilling the pool. We donítget that many pool weekends in this area and I didnít want to lose another.
Here is my question: Can I do the refinishing in the fallafter the season is over or should I wait again for next Spring? I donít want tolose more pool time next year, so if it is safe to do, Iíd rather get it doneprior to the winter. I realize, Iíd be wasting some water, but itís a price Iídbe willing to pay. The pool guy says it is better to do it in the Spring so youavoid the winter.
Thanks for your help.
