Discovered this forum while searching for DIY information and have spent 3 days straight learning everything about pools. What a site!
We are going to renovate our pool at the end of the season - new coping, fix beam damage, new tile, new plaster, new skimmer, new automatic pool cover. I've learnt a lot on all the different options and these have helped me make some good decisions. Will post picture of before/after once we begin work.
Now, I am very much interested in a new idea. For the 6 months or so where the pool is not in use, it would be incredible if one could use a plexiglass structure to build a Walk-on-water type of cover on the pool. This way, the entire back-yard now has more usable space for the kids and we can host our parties with the pool below!! Before I go into all of the challenges (there are many...), has anyone done this or do you know of anyone who has done it?
There are a few companies that do this now and it is very hard to get a hold of them. One of them got back to me and said the cost would be 150K, so their product is clearly not an option.
Thanks for any feedback on this.
