I am trying to understand the magnitude of costs for a pool remodel we hope to complete over the next year. Is anyone willing to share numbers on replastering, automatic covers, and reshaping a pool? We have a 25' x 80' back yard with a 15' x 33' pool. The pool is rectangular, except the corners are rounded and one of the long edges slopes 9" wider over 25', then juts out about 4' as a triangular swimout where a diving board once went.
We need to either repair the mesh fence left by the prior owners or install a fence or cover.
* What is the ballpark cost of glass and metal fencing? I'd guess ~$200/ft and ~$40/ft, so a 50-ft half-glass-half-metal would run ~$6k.
* Any guess what reshaping the swimout and non-parallel wall would cost, given that we are replastering anyway? I'd expect a few thousand each for the swimout and the wall. I gather the cover itself would cost ~$10k. ($16k total.)
* Does anyone let their pool cleaner run under the cover?
Replaster: I'm guessing this will cost between $6k for cheapest plaster to $15k for pebble sheen + tiling and coping. Any experiences?
Other: I gather adding a spa would cost $7k-$15k, so we wouldn't do it. We'll probably get a variable-speed pump, swg, suction 2xPoolvergnuegen. We may get solar heating and a gas heater.
