    Got a little work to do

    I have been wrestling with this plumbing issue with our pool. So needless to say, the pool has not been getting the "upkeep" that it typically gets. After fixing our plumbing problem, we are going to do some of the other things we have on our to-do list for the pool and backyard.

    I think this makes the perfect BEFORE picture of our pool.



    As we do more, I will add more pics.

    A couple other pics I found from when we just bought the house.

    The landscaping was WAAAAAY overgrown and no the pool has not always been green.

    What kind of deck is around the pool? Aggregate of some kind? Do you like it?

    It looks like exposed aggregate. We used to have on our patio... easy to install for DIY'rs, quite durable and pretty to look at. Kind of hard on the bare footsies, though.

    It is exposed aggregate, we kinda like it. I wouldn't say it hurts the feet, but it does keep the kids from running . The back 2 sections are broken and pulling away from the pool. It would be pretty cheap to redo, but we plan to remove them and install a landscape area in that back corner of the yard.

    Excellent! description of the exposed aggregate - we did a lot of those decks when I worked in Va., and I FULLY agree

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
