Here we go. I recently purchased a house with a 35,000 gallon Anthony swamp in the yard.
Just like the rest of the house ,the pool is a total fixer upper. I purchased the house from an estate, so the details are sketchy or non-existent as far as what has been done with the pool or the last time it was opened. The only thing I was told is that it was properly closed up 2-3 years ago and from what I can tell, it hasn't been touched since. The only good thing I can see is that it is a vinyl lined pool and it's currently filled right to the top of the skimmer. So it's not leaking and the liner appears to be intact. This weekend I plan to get the mesh safety cover off and get a good look at things.
The specs are pretty basic - 20x40 In-ground, with a Hayward Super Pump and sand filter. I'll know more once I get it uncovered.
The deck is shot, and I need to put up a fence since there is none now. So the next 4 weekends will be jam packed with work to get the old concrete deck out and the ground work done a new concrete paver deck before the fence goes up and cuts off my access to get equipment in there.
Here goes nothin' !
