    1993 renovation Tulsa, OK, seeking input!

    So surprisingly the cover mechanism on the pool still worked after 27 years, it made a lot of grinding noises and sounded like it was about to break all the time, but it did the job. Unfortunately the installer measured it too short so when the cover shrunk a bit over winter it became too tight...

    That's a good point on the deck size. It's one of those things where I've always seen it that size and shape, so I just assume "that's the deck" and should put it back the same way, even though i can actually do whatever i want once its torn up.

    New Build in Central Texas - Patio Build Out

    That deck drain doesn’t look removable. Those tend to get clogged up and stop functioning and look pretty terrible after a while. If you could still swap in a removable one..may not be worth it at this point though.

    New Build in Central Texas - Patio Build Out

    Not a total waste if you start with a Stenner and end up switching to SWCG. Just convert the Stenner to acid.

    I'm about to build my pool... I know nothing about pools

    I would say as a single mom with two kids and no job you should perhaps wait on a luxury item like a pool until you have some career and financial stability. Pools are money pits, building one is a gigantic money pit. Great to have a dream but savings are for saving not pools...
