I am new to this site and am excited to become a regular. My husband and I have decided to look for a home with a pool. We recently came across a house that we really like. However, the pool looks like it is in major disrepair (at least in my inexperienced eyes). We were told that the sellers are not making any negotiations regarding the pool and it has not been used in two years (I am willing to bet it's been longer than that). Before we make any offers on this house we want to know what will be needed to get this pool up and running. I will contact a local company on Tuesday but I would like to get opinions from experienced pool owners. We are outdoor people and really want a pool. If this seems like a lost cause we will walk away from this house. I am not afraid to sink a few g's on repairs. I don't have much information on the pool. The house is 31 years old so I am assuming the pool was installed at the time the home was built. I went out today and took lots of pictures and measurements. Please look at the pics and give any advice you can on what you see. The pool is concrete (?) and is 20 x 40. Some of the tiles have fallen off or will be off soon. Thank you in advance of any input.
This is a close up of the exposed first step.
If you'd like for me to edit a pic or zoom in on something please let me know.
