    Used pool deal - 30k gal-ish.

    I couldn't help but post this, not that I can afford it, nor go get it and haul it.

    But figured I'd throw this up here to chat about.

    The ad on CL, for when it gets taken down.
    Ad text as follows...

    Dis-assembly by You in 2 days time. Equipment can be sold separately.

    Pool equip: $1500
    Heater is a Sta Rite Max E Therm 400K propane.
    Filter is Sta Rite System 3

    Haha, heck of a job taking it down and setting it back up! Pretty decent equipment though. If it's all in good shape $1500 is a pretty good price.

    Re: Used pool deal - 30k gal-ish.

    I was curious as to what the unit to the right of the sand filter was. It's in the 3rd picture down.
    Is that the heater?

    Also, my aunt had this exact same unit, the other one on the left, the filter. It was clearly a sand filter, it had a vertical multiport valve on it with a big plunger that you twisted and pulled up or down to go from backwash, to rinse, ro run. It was ultra critical that you not actuate that plunger while the pump was running.

    Well, I noticed in the Visual Encyclopedia in Pool School, that the picture for this is listed as a "Cartridge Filter". Surely that is a mistake, no?

    Do you think it could be taken down in 2 days, as their ad specifies?
    Wouldn't the deck have to be ripped out to get at the side supports?

    Will a 10yr old AGP like that be in good enough shape to use, being that it's in an EXTREMELY wet climate. Moss, mold, mildew ville. It's a rainforest there, that's the classification of climate.
    But ooooh so beautiful!!! Think No-Cal on the coast in the forest and there you have it just about.
    Averages almost 50" rain/yr. More than Seattle, WA or Portland, OR.
    I'd say about 30's/50's on avg. in winter, from coldest to warmest during the coldest winter months, Nov-Feb. Minus record lows/highs.
    Not much frost and little to no snow beyond a skiff once per season.

    Also, they say it needs a new liner.
    Do they only last about 10yrs, even if properly maintained?
    Aside from that, I know they can fail due to neglect, accidents and a whole myriad of problems.

    How much would a new liner cost for a pool like that?

    I wouldn't even attempt to take it down in two days. It would take a day just to figure out what all had to be done just to begin taking it down. And if you did it where you'd have a chance of putting it back up, it'd take a day just to take the wall down and roll it up without dmamging it.

    Yeah it would be a nightmare of a project to take it down and keep it in good enough shape to re-use. I'm sure it could be done but it's not something I would want a part in

    The unit to the right of the filter is a heater. The gas regulator sticking out the side of it gives it away of nothing else does.

    Re: Used pool deal - 30k gal-ish.

    And it's buried with a dug out center, so either buttresses buried or supports buried under liner? A liner that old can't be salvaged, it has gotten to stiff to stretch back in after it has dryed out. Sounds like the owners might know that and are being honest about it.

    Is it an all-in-one unit? Where they have different modules that fit inside the same container?

    Yeah, it looks like a total nightmare if you ask me!!
    Two days seemed a little ***** to me, typical CL whininess. LOL
    You'd probably need a flat bed to haul all of that, huh?

    Lovely, so how does one tell the difference, aside from the label on it?
    Plumbing, valves, etc..?
