As some of you know my indoor vinyl pool is in the process of getting a new roof (almost done waiting on the back ordered skylight), so I am now thinking ahead a couple of years to the next major pool expense. I am thinking the next time the liner needs to be replaced (I am guessing another 3-5 years, more if I am lucky), that I want to replace the existing drop in steps with built in corner steps, I would also like to make the Hopper style deep end a foot or so deeper, and maybe change the slope profile from the shallow to deep end. This pool was built about 30 years ago, and is the fairly standard 20x40 hopper end with 3 ft shallow end taking up 1/3 of the length. Mostly I want a deeper well in the hopper, plus a 3 - 4.5 ft stepped shallow end.
How practical do you think these thoughts are?
p.s. those of you with corner steps on your vinyl pools, please post pictures so I can get some ideas
