I recently purchased a house with an old in-ground that has been closed up and forgotten about for a few years. I'm bringing it back to life on a budget, so there's going to be lot's of sweat equity going into this one. Follow along if you would like. Here's the plan :
Remove old wood deck and what's left of the concrete pool decking. (done)
Bring bonding up to code. (none now)
Move equipment back about 8 feet. and re-plumb
Install concrete paver decking 6' out around 3 sides and 16' off the shallow end with a fire pit.
Install pool fence
Run new electrical in conduit out to the equipment pad
Install new timer, sub-panel, timer, and convenience outlet at the pad
Un-swamp the swamp
Light fire, Open beer, Watch the sunset.
Here's where I'm starting, I'll post new pics as I go.
