Hello fellow peeps, this is the first time I have had a chance to upload a couple pics. I will put up a couple more pics in the next couple days. We bought this house last year and the pool was a slough of disgust. It hadn't been used in almost 20 years (along with knowone living in the house either, it was kept as a write off ) we were unsure what we were going to find when we emptied it but luckily it wasn't cracked or anything. The paint was chipping off in some spots and the tile needed grout, along with that we installed a new pump, sand filter, and the best part a wood burning heater. I spent about a week in a rain suit pressure washing every sqaure inch and then painted it with 3 coats of Benjamin Mohr pool paint. Anyways heres the pics I got right now and I promise I will put up a couple more in the next few days. The black pump you see in some of the pics was the old one and now we have a Pentair Whisper Flow. Enjoy.
This is after we decided that the kreepy crawler wasn't going to cut it and started draining it. We found rocks and bricks in it along with about 3 inches of sludge.
Here was this spring, I never tarped it over the winter which I learned was a bad idea. The leaves in it stuck so I threw 4 gallons of bleach in it.
Here is when I started pressure washing the old paint off. I use a 2200PSI washer and it did a pretty good job.
The tile before.
The pool heater installed. Old pump though

The pool with fresh paint and water. This is the only pic I have right now cause my camera died. Looks really nice when its sunny.
