This is an older post but, this is the same pool type that I have. I was wondering what you ended up doing to renovate your pool. Has anyone else renovated this type of "Hybrid" pool? my concrete floor is in great shape. The fiberglass panel walls are full of the bubbles but they are not leaking. My problem is that the coping is breaking up in a couple of areas. I am looking for options! Would I be better off sanding the panels down to fiberglass as stated above.Should I have the bubbles Ground out, Epoxy or something applied to these areas? Have coping replaced with type that will accept a vinyl liner, maybe add padding to walls and floor and put in a nice liner and enjoy my pool?The walls must be sanded down to the fiberglass using an angle grinder with a 24grit sanding pad
After removing all the gel coat (the white or faded blue color) hose down and let dry overnight
Wash walls down with pool solvent
Roll on 1 coating of vinyl ester resin
Roll on first coating of swimming pool gel coat
Roll on second coating of swimming pool gel coat
Do not cover walls with pool water for 3 full days, rain does not matter
Fill the pool and do not empty again except for emergency repair
Walls will be like the day they were new for the next 15 years.
I could have coping repaired and let the rest go but thought it might be a good time to add liner if advisable.
Any suggestions other options are certainly welcome and appreciated. Thanks!
