    BIG Pool needs some TLC. Tips and help welcomed! Got photos.

    So I have an OLD pool that hasn't been filled for over 10 years, and has baked in the sun. It's 12 feet deep, haven't measured it but I want to re-surface it myself. I was thinking of EZ Patching the minor holes when I realized the majority of the pool has small cracks. My spending limit is $3,000...and I was planning on doing a majority of work myself..I was going to acid-wash prior to patching, but my main question is, if I patch up the holes, can I paint over the mini cracks, or should I do a plaster re-surface.. at a reasonable cost? I was thinking of EZ-Patching the divots and just Epoxy painting it, then filling her up. But with a close look, I don't think it'll be that easy, and for a pool that's been out of commission for 10+ years I need some real assistance!

    Need help as to what to do, if I myself can do it and whether or not I can get some knowledgeable quotes from people that have done similar work?

    So I'm getting my pool guy tomorrow for a quote, but I'm leaning towards a re-plaster....considering the whole E-Z Patch and epoxy paint over hasn't gotten any responses..

    We're gonna check if there's leaks, if we need new plumbing, and if it's going to run me less than 5 grand. :S

    Their stuff looks very interesting, have you previously used their products? If so, do you recommend them as a personal consumer, and would you say it's semi-difficult of an install?
