We've just moved into a home that has an existing pool (roughly 20x40 kidney shape) that the realtor said was possibly original or close to original.. read 15 years old.. Its showing its age a bit but is sound. no cracks, leaks serious "wounds" to the surface etc.. but it does have some dark marks in some parts of the plaster and what looks like "scaling"; area's where the pool finish is smooth then rough "Blotchy"..etc.
Because we've just moved in and the wife is busy "nesting" new funiture etc..Its gonna be a while before we can do any major repairs on the pool. I've discovered that a new pool finish Pebble-Tec etc will be in the neighborhood of 5-10 grand..
So my question is there anything wrong with draining the pool, acid washing the surface .. painting over the imperfections to hide them and buying myself a few years of delayed pool surface maintenance
