Ok so last year after reading several posts here I decided to built a concrete block/liner pool. I thought it sounded easier than it really was. At the end of the summer we had the walls up, sand in the bottom and smoothed and before ordering the liner it started getting cool. We decided to wait till spring to do the liner so we would not have to take care of the water through the winter. That was a big mistake. We had an abnormally wet spring here in Texas. We were flooded a few times and the pool filled up 3 feet with water. The sand in the bottom is now a mess and needs to be dug out more. We did not have time to work on it at all since it was raining most weekends. Now it is crazy hot.
I called the only pool company in DFW that rehabs in ground liner pools. He said he didnt even want to take on the job because so much needed to be done. Really it is just rescraping the bottom, attaching a liner, and plumbing it. Then coping and decking. Thats all right? lol I know it is a lot of work. Well he never got back to me with a quote so I am guessing we are just on our own. He did say it might even be cheaper to just shoot gunite inside the walls and floor. Is this possible? Would the floor be able to be seamed with the walls since the walls are already there? I thought the floor needed to go in first then the walls for that to happen. Can you attach a gunite shell to concrete block walls?
At this point I just want to be able to find someone who can go this. We got in over our heads. I might be able to find a concrete company to shoot in a shell if this is even possible. I cannot find anyone to finish it as a liner pool though.
