    storm damage

    My beautiful pool was damaged during Hurricaine Irene when a tree fell on it. The installer says it can't be repaired and needs to be replaced. I am waiting to see it the insurance company will cover the cost.
    This is the pool before:[attachment=2:2qfyqhvo]pool 1.jpg[/attachment:2qfyqhvo][attachment=1:2qfyqhvo]pool 2.jpg[/attachment:2qfyqhvo]
    and this is after: [attachment=0:2qfyqhvo]storm damage 1.jpg[/attachment:2qfyqhvo]

    That is a shame! So sorry about your beautiful pool! I hope you have a low deductible.

    Ouch! That was a great looking pool, I'd be upset if I lost that, I hope you rebuild even better, perhaps it's great opportunity to do some upgrades you may have secretly thought about.
    The older I get the less and less I like tree's on my property, when they fall they are just too dangerous.
