This site has been a great source of information for me so I thought I'd post some pics of my renovation that will be starting this month.
The pool is about 30 years old, concrete with plaster and a coat or two of paint over that. We moved into this house last year knowing that the pool would need to be renovated. Due to other issues with the house the pool was cleaned and patched to get through the summer. The BBB method worked great last year. Water chemistry was a little difficult because of a leak in the pool. It leaks down to about the returns. Had to add a lot of water to keep the pool full. So my CH, TA, CYA.... were getting diluted.
Plan is to remove the concrete deck. Find leak and fix. Possibly adding another skimmer. Retile, new coping, new deck, replaster. Hope to get all this done by June. Open to all comment and suggestions. First pic will be what we started with.
