Hi! I am new here my name is Adrian... and I am desperate for answers and guidance. I have a fiberglass pool that needs to be painted with apoxy since the orginal gel lining is wearing off. I got a quote from a contractor who said it would costs $5600!! I was hoping to do this myself and have been researching on how to ensure you do not damage the shell. I think it may be doable since I live in the desert (so water table not an issue) and was thinking as long as I do not saturate the surrounding ground with the water I pump out and I it does not rain the walls will not cave in and the shell wont pop out. Has anyone else drained their fiberglass pool and/ or have advice for me?
