I searched the forums and see this question has come up in the past a few times but from a few years ago so hope I'm not being offensive asking this again. I'm in contract on a home that has an in ground Gunite pool that was built 30 years ago. Inspection said it was a Sylvan pool (not sure how they know the brand!) and kidney shaped with max depth of 8 ft. The sellers said it was in service this past summer but the cover so I did not find out about the cracks until inspection.
From inspection we found several cracks in stairs and one larger crack near tile and they are all leaking. Report states that it will need extensive repair on shell so probably all plaster removed .. Some repair to unite shell and replaster.
Question is what is rough estimate? Pool is not very important for me as it has limited use (2 months a year here in NJ) and I'd just as soon rip it out and reclaim the space but that is pricey as well. I also would not replace any tile or coping. Attaching some pics as well if anyone can give me some ideas on similar repair costs.
