Hi everyone, I'm new to pools!
I have an income property with a long term lease (5 to 10 years), and the lessee doesn't want to deal with a pool.
The pool was built in 1995, made of plaster, in the Palm Springs California area.
It has been proposed to: drain the water / fill with sand / cover the pool for 5 to 10 years.
When the lessee vacates: remove the sand / repair (re-plaster, caulk, fix tiles, possibly replace filter and motor).
1. Has anyone had experience in hibernating (or retiring a pool) for an extended period?
2. What would be some of your recommendations?
3. Are there alternatives to filling with sand?
I've attached a picture of the pool for reference. Pool3.jpg
