    1972 Block wall pool undergoing 2012 Reno!

    Hey guys,

    On Dave's advice after introducing myself in the intro forum, decided to bring my discussion here! Short summary, then I'll try to post pics which are way more helpful....

    After seeing the vinyl liner in my pool so pulled away in the corners, the track pulled almost completely out of the old block, and the retrofitted concrete coping sections almost falling into the pool, I decided this was the year for the remodel. Also decided on going about it myself (aside from GP Pools doing a liner install), seeing as how 2 pool companies wanted nothing to do with it and two more gave me prices of 16-20K! Oh and I gave myself a deadline, by planing a May 26th Memorial Day Party, Like I need more motivation! Anyway, here's some pics, will get to my questions in a bit...

    woops, looks like the picture embed didn't work, any ideas? I tried uploading them one file at I a time, but just kept getting "file uploading" status forever....

    You don't really want us looking on your C: drive anyway. Post it on Photobucket or other photo hosting sight and link it here.

    So here's the steps, anyone seen anything like that metal bracket before? I'm new to everything pools but from what I saw online if you buy a new set up fiberglass steps they don't have these steel "mounting flanges"

    It doesn't look like part of the steps (they're white and on the right, correct?) to me. Do you think it may have been something to help form up that corner?
