    Can I add on to my tiny pool? Cost?

    Our pool is only a few years old but it is WAY too small! Our yard is plenty big enough to expand our pool. Is this possible? My desire would be to make like a stream type passage connecting my current pool to a whole other pool. Thoughts anyone? Could we use our current heater and pump to cut down cost? Or no?

    Attached Spa with waterfall overflow into pool. Hand vacuumed and maintained by me.

    Put your pool and equipment info in your sig and we'll be better able to advise. My thought is that you can do what you propose, but using the existing pump and especially the heater is iffy.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Expanding a pool is completely possible, but the costs will be just about the same as building a new pool from scratch.
