Hello All, so this is my first post on a forum ever. so please bear with me.
Me and my wife bought our first home last year, had an inground swimming pool of course when we did the inspection everything was 100%. but when we went to open it after we closed on the house liner was ripped in the corner.
So this year were having the liner replaced ($2,400) (14x32 rectangular pool), but we have no built in stairs they have that wedding cake type of stairs inserted(ugly unsafe and may ruin my new liner). So after talking to the pool contractor about adding stairs he suggested adding metal stairs to the inside corner of the pool ($2,300).
The pool is however 24 years old and is made of metal, my concern is, is it even worth putting the stairs for that much money or just skip it because of the age of pool.
Were also considering changing the coping so we can install pavers around the pool ($700), since the old coping is made for one of those electronic covers (doesn't work at all)
I'm really new to the swimming pool thing , so I really would appreciate any help or insight anyone can give me please.
Also I am located in NY.
