bought a foreclosed home last year, pool was a mess. Got a new liner installed and everything worked fine for a month or so then time to close down. The sand filter and motor are old, I was told some of the o-rings needed replaced for them to work properly, given a quote with labor for around 500 bucks. Seems to me like getting a whole new pump and filter would be a better way to go. Any thoughts? I asked my local pool store and was told it would be around $1700 for them to install a new pump and filter. I dont know a whole lot about the current stuff other than it looks old, they do not have tags on them... I do know the filter holds 325 lbs of sand if that helps. Pool is 16x34 inground and 12ft deep end / 4ft shallow.
Any suggestion? Does the quote sound fair or should I search the net for a better deal?
