    AGP - When is it time to say Good-Bye?

    I have a Sharkline pool 48"x28'. About 20 years old. When is it time to take down or replace? I am the main person that uses it and takes care of it. In my 50s and think I may be ready to give it up.. but not sure.

    How do I know when the pool is too old? We do have some rust spots under return and skimmer that worry me. Hubby wants to give it another year. There is a backyard/house downhill from the pool.

    Many Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum suncountry

    Well the good thing is that buried 2' of water (9K gal) isn't going anywhere. Is your pool about 18,000 gals ??
    For areas of the structure that you're worried about the rust you can always post a few photos to get some opinions on.

    Will get some pics. The low side is exposed and that is where the filter is.

    Ok - Hopefully this works. Here are links to pics. Thoughts?

    Total gallons are probably about 22K, as the center is scooped out.

    Take care of the rust spots and make sure it is only surface rust. Otherwise it looks fine!

    Don't look like too much of a problem at all for the old gal. Sand it, prime it, seal it and enjoy.
