Found this forum searching for DIY pool remodeling help. My pool is 15 years old this June. I live in Northern Utah and the winters have finally taken their toll. I need to replace the coping and tile on three sides. Pool is 18 X 35 X 5 sport pool one 35 side in all water feature and has held up well. The original coping in bullnose brick. I have had a lot of trouble with freeze damage. I want to replace it with cantilevered stamped/color concrete in hopes there will be less places water can get in and raise cain.
The plaster is stained: not terribly in the pool but the spa looks awful. I am thinking of refinishing both with an epoxy paint but I am just starting my research. I must do most of the work myself. I do not have the money to pay someone to do it so I am hoping to find lots of help/info and will welcome and appreciate all I can get.
The pool has also experienced severe freeze damage around the plastic skimmer and the cement around it. I suspect I'll need to cut it out and replace.
Most forums I have come across have been very helpful in the past: cars, trucks, Land Rovers and such. I hope I'll have the same experience here. I am happy to be a new member of Trouble Free Pool. Thank you.
