A year and a half ago we bought our house with a pool - Johnston County NC. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Never had a pool before this. House was built in 1974, pool sometime after that. It's concrete, 20x40 and painted. The house sat empty for two years before we bought it. There was water in the pool during that time - icky, green water!
We used it last year and used the BBB method. Water was great. My brother-in-law even said he noticed there wasn't a chlorine smell with BBB. But the paint looks like it flaked off. And it's got some stains on the bottom. (I'm not sure if this was from not being maintained for 2 years or what.) So it didn't look as nice as it should. Summer's coming and I'd like the pool to look nice.
How do you take care of the looks of a concrete pool? Was it supposed to be painted? Should I repaint the pool?
I would appreciate any suggestions. Sorry if my questions sound stupid, but I don't know what to do. Thanks!
