Hello! I am so happy to have found this board. We have owned a pool for about a year and a half....but am just now getting around to investigating how to clean it up and (hopefully) enjoy it. The pool was not the primary reason we purchased our home, but we did stop the previous owner from bulldozing it - "just in case". As always, budget is a concern.
I have attached a link to photos of the pool. I'm curious if anyone has any experience resurrecting a pool such as this. I'm having difficulty finding a vendor in my area to come look at it. From what I know, the pump was new in 2006. The pool was last used in 2009ish. It has been empty at least the last two years and probably the last 5. The crack appears to have been filled at some point. The drain is unplugged so it holds no water at the moment BUT does grown some fantastic earthworms. I don't know enough to tell if it is structurally sound or may have floated.
It is approximately 20' x 50' with a 3' shallow end and about a 10' deep end. It was built in the late 50s/early 60s, I believe, and served as a neighborhood pool. I have added a few pictures in the link below. It's in pretty rough shape at the moment...
Thank you for any insight or help you can offer!
(I haven't had much luck getting anyone to come out to look at and/or repair the crack. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas of potential vendors for us to call in the southern half of IN or northern part of KY.)
