I am new to the forum and hope that with the wealth of knowledge here, I can find some sound guidance.
We currently live in a home which has a 21' x 28' in-ground, indoor pool. The enclosure and pool were added as an addition to the original house in 1986. We purchased the home in 1998 and enjoyed the pool for several years before equipment issues and financial difficulties forced us to close it down in 2002.
Things have turned around now and in 2010 we began the renovation process - beginning with the structure itself. There was water damage that needed to be repaired due to failure of the dehumidification system (which was never really installed correctly). We have installed new windows and doors, a correctly sized furnace, 2 new industrial dehumidification units, a proper air exchange system, and new filter and pool heater.
The structure is good to go, now we need to start work on the pool and pool deck. The pool has a 3 1/2' fiberglass wall with a rubber coping around the top edge which extends down to a concrete ledge. The concrete then slopes down to a depth of about 4' at the shallow end, and 9' at the deep end. There are floor drains in the deck and around the perimeter of the room. All plumbing is in working order. Pool has the skimmer (skimmer door is missing though) and 1 floor drain feeding the filter, and 3 returns. Pump and filter are in working order
Our challenges that need to be overcome are determining the best option for resurfacing the concrete inside the pool, which is currently painted but flaking badly; and preparing the surrounding deck and possibly a replacement coping. There are areas around the pool edges where the deck concrete has cracked (possibly due to a partial "pop" before we purchased the home), been patched, and is cracking again.
Do we re-paint, fiberglass, possibly install a vinyl liner? Is there an effective way to repair the deck, replace coping? Is it possible to install some type of thin pavers with a bullnose remodel coping to hide the original coping and cover the concrete.
I know these are a lot of questions with no visual reference, I will try to upload some pics tomorrow. Any input the great minds here can contribute would be greatly treasured.
