So I have a few pool contractors coming over to give me some quotes this week and I was wondering what some of you might consider I think about as this is my first pool remodel.
The pool was painted before I bought the house...bummer for me. Pulled the wool over my eyes. Major problems with algae getting into the areas where the paint was chipping.
I've replaced the old Crystal clear 2 and old hayward pump for a Pentair DE 60sf and Variable speed pump. I have no idea what this is going to cost me so maybe those of you in So. Cal. can give me some input.
-Relocate Light J-box (I might do this)
-Possibly clean and repair tile (couple cracked)
-Keep Coping (maybe stain it)
-Baja shelf in the shallow end for the munchkins
-Replace old skimmer and old copper piping, with 2" PVC
-Pool currently has one skimmer and one return. (Replace return with bigger or add new)
-Possibly repair main drain (Believe it's tied into the skimmer somehow, but found plugged
when I removed drain cover.)
-The big feature I would like is to reduce the depth of the deep end since we no longer have a diving board and none of us can even swim that deep without major pain in the ears. (Possbly have it shallow at both ends with it a little deeper in the middle.)
-Pool deck is really bad, but i'll likely have to leave it due to cost and just replace the decking where the diving board and plumbing are.
I will also pull new GFCI circuits for the pump and the light. They were both sharing the same circuit with no GFCI. Scary.
Any advice or input is appreciated!
