New member, new pool owner.
I recently purchased my first house and along with it got my first pool...or what is left of it.
House was a forclosure and the previous owner certainly didnt care much about the way they left the house, pool, yard, etc.
Anyway, they never winterized the pool. I have no clue to the condition of the piping underground or the pump/filter.
The liner is trashed and some of the concrete around the outside of the pool has cracked/buckled.
I guess the first question I have is how can I begin to determine the condition of the different pieces of the pool?
Is there a good way to test the plumbing to see if it has been trashed since it was never winterized?
Is there a good way to test the pump and filter assembly?
Is there a reasonable way to find out why the concrete cracked and shifted?
Im open to other thoughts/concerns.
This is a link to some pics I took of the pool tonight... http://s27.photobucket.com/albums/c180/A4x4Junky/Pool/
