I just bought a home in Florida about a month ago with a kidney shaped pool. Gunite, the details in my sig.
Anyways, After getting my first water bill, I put 13,000 gallons of water into it in a month, which is excessive (approx 17k gallon pool). It's also screwing up my CYA and it's going down, bleh. I am wondering what my first steps would be at this point, I am refilling the pool nearly daily. I have approx. 5k $ for renovations, but not sure if I want to spend it all on remarciting or not.
Would it be worth my money to get a leak test from a professional and attempt to seal the leak on my own? I know the pool is approx 30 yrs old, not sure if it's ever been remarcited, but it appears to be in decent condition. I am just at a loss here, I want to seal this leak, but I want to use my money wisely, as I would also like to put a screen over my pool which wouldnt be possible if I remarcite. I wish remarciting was a project I could do myself to save money lol. Thanks TFP.
