    Was that the connection to a heater? That is horrible. I assume this was a pool you got "asked" to look at?

    Yeah, that was the connection to the heater. We got asked to look at the pool by the potential new homeowner.

    Funny thing is we are going to do a quick re-connect and see f the heater will still work.....lol. I have a funny feeling it won't.

    I can't believe the rest of the heater hasn't simply colapsed around itself. I can't believe such condition wouldn't have also effected the pump, right? I am still floored looking at that.......I can't be the only one that is shaking their head. I know I don't keep my pool up perfectly......but somebody murdered that equipment.

    Oh, per chance, have you tested the water at that location? It would be interesting to know just how out of balance it is.

    Well, the pool was empty when we did the inspection. But, when we go back to start balancing the new fill water, I will post the starting water results. The pump and the filter are much newer than the heater (which I believe is original). Another interesting thing is that the skimmer baskets were full of scale.....and there was a new paint job on the pool.

    Looks like you have your work cut out then. Wow, glad I don't have to play with that pool. It will be interesting to read on what you find, and how "bad" it is to fix it all up and how long it takes to get everything all up running and people swimming.
