I guess i dont even know where to start.....
I just bought a house from forclosure with a 20x40 laxy l pool. I am in Maine and the pool is indoors. The pool room is 45x70 with radiant heat in the concrete floor around the pool. I have NO prior info on the house other than a pool company that says they installed it 25 years ago. The pool is 4/5ths drained, the return all have plugs in them and there are 2 over deck 2 inch pvc pipes going from the sand filter back into the pool(side by side). The pool company says they have not seen the pool in several years but believe the return lines have cracked, but the skimmers are good, that is why there are over deck return lines.
Where do i start? I am already way over budget on repairs mooving into this house, I want to get the pool "fixed" ASAP so i can use it, but think i should look at the return line issue before i replace the liner?
is this overdeck return line enough to properly circulate the watter?
How do i check to see what is actualy broken, or where the breaks may be, with out watter in the pool?
Is there a way to fix lines with out digging up concrete/radiant heating?
I got a 4k quote on the liner and $500 for them to replace it... I believe i can get a liner online for $1800 and have seen u-tube videos and replacing it yourself doesnt look all that difacut? Is it worth the risk to try myself?
Budget is a HUGE concern... any help or thoughts?
I have read about the no dig- internal epoxy repair solutions, but there doesnt appear to be anyone in maine that can do a return watter line (1.5" I believe).
I have not started this project yet as i am still moving in and fixing house plumbing issues. I would like to start working on this in the next 2 weeks.
Thanks for any thoughts or advice!
