I am buying a home with a painted pool and reading up/learning as much as possible. I grew up around pools so I already have a good idea what I am getting into. I had a pool man inspect it and the report came back clean except for the paint on the walls - Clouds up a little when you rub it and little milky residue on your hand. My inspector says it needs immediate attention, but the water is clear otherwise.
Based on my research here it sounds like pool paint doesnt last too long in the first place. I know the argument against paint, but putting the cash down to replaster on top of the 20% down on the house ... I am getting alligator arms that jsut don't want to reach into my pockets for a replaster right away.
My question: would you have a problem with the pool needing a repaint if you were buying the house? The pool was not opened for the summer when we put the offer in. Being that pool paint doesnt last long would you just let it go or demand pool repaint???? I kind of feel since paint doesnt last too long anyway it is like requesting the trees be pruned before closing.
