We bought our first home and it has a 32' x 18' inground pool. The pool is in a bad condition( visually and to a first time pool owner). That why we need your expert advice.
We have attached some pics to give an idea of the pool. The argument here is to keep the pool or fill it in. We got some quotes for both.
Keep the pool
Quotes varying from $3300 - $5500. These don't include the price of pool cover.
Vinyl liner 20/20 mil
1/4" form wall
pump out pool
dispose existing liner
scarpe walls retape seams
Replace sand or vermiculite floor
install liner lock corners
new face plates gaskets and screws
block off skimmer with steel plate
forbroken pipes n repair crew chief would give actual price
Does it cover everything to fix the pool and make it swimmable or we should expect some last moment surprises?
The other ($3500 quote) is pretty much the same but not detailed like this.
Fill in the pool
We got quotes from $6500- $10000
The pictures show the foundation of the pool which is broken at one corner and is intact on the other side. We also have a Hayward pump and chlorine feeder.
What do you experts suggest, to keep it or to fill it in. Did I mention that backyard is on a slope. This pool is more than 15 years old.
Thanks in advance.
