    permantly closed pool?

    I am looking at buying a home

    but there is a 30 by 15 foot swimming pool in the backyard that has been filled in with dirt
    the home was built in the 1970s
    and i imagine the pool was built sometime around then 70 or 80s
    It might have been built with the house im really unsure of age
    but u can tell its pretty old

    there was a diving board. so it has to be at least 8 foot deep i imagine on one end

    the homes foundation seems fine there is no cracking in the foundation its a slab

    How can i tell if the pool was closed properly

    what do i need to know about the scenario

    could i feesiabley resurface the pool? even i fthe bottom was punctured
    The decking appears to be fair not to badly cracked

    or which is mostl likely ignore the pool completly and it wont effect the house

    it could have been fiberglass or vinyal lined. \
    there is just some white rim around the area.
    that appears cracked
    and a cement foundation

    is a closed pool something i should run away from or
    just ignore and itll be ok. in terms of home buying

    the house is a great deal for the price. and the area.
    and the home seems fairly intact

    the foundation of the home is not cracked.
    its poored on a slab

    Hope you can help me figure it out
    Ill try to send a picture later

    Search the forum for the 1963 pool build. Someone is doing exactly what you are asking.
