Well, I have gotten an estimate to repair the rusted wall as well as the smaller areas around the rest of the pool. It will be sanded and painted with a rustoleum-type paint and that is acceptable to Fox Pool headquarters who are willing to "work" with me on the repair. There is a difference in opinion on the next step, which is to spray the walls with foam. Fox won't pay for this and the pool builder says that is the norm in this type of situation. I'm tending to agree with him in that this will keep this from happening again. Fox says there's no way to get the foam smooth therefore it causes problems. It's a $250 difference so it's not that big a deal. I have no problem paying that...just wondering what the consensus is here.....
I haven't really gotten a straight answer on whether the new liner (that is necessary) is something that Fox will cover. I have explained that I think it ought to be covered since it was the rust that put the hole in the liner. The PB is supposedly giving them a deal that if they will provide the liner, he will only charge $1200 for the installation. Is that a fair price for installation?
So, this could cost me as little as $250 for the foam wall and Fox pays the rest (service calls, liner, wall treatment and installation) or as much as $3600 if they don't cover any of it. Does $3600 sound like a fair estimate to repair all this damage, including a liner and installation? (the original post on this is here - http://www.troublefreepool.com/screw...ol-t36186.html)
A few more pics. Mostly what the whole pool looks like except for the one panel.
This is where I thought the screw was coming out. Good thing I didn't pull this out on my own!
