We are getting ready to remodel our existing pool built in 1988. We are in the DFW area. The original plaster is worn, the waterline mosaic tiles are popping off, the mastic failed years before we bought the house, and the brick coping has cracks in the grout. We are looking at travertine coping, glass waterline tile, and a Quartz finish. At least that's what I like. Maybe add automation? We have just started to get quotes and have been shocked at how expensive the things we like are. We were considering adding a water feature (wall at back of pool with sheer rain units) but are now wondering if it's worth the added cost or if it's the right design. I don't believe any of our equipment needs to be replaced (it's all relatively new). Anyone have any advice or suggestions? Pool pics and details below.
