I purchased a home with a pool back in November.
First home, first pool.
The pool was in complete disrepair.
Vinyl liner brittle, cracked, and torn.
Pump and filter assembly never drained prior to either of the two winters the house was vacant.
The concrete pad around the pool is cracked and settling/sinking near the stair end of the pool.
I have no idea the condition of the majority of the pieces of the pool...I see the steel walls...and fiberglass steps...and rusty-looking filter/pump.
I was planning on breaking up the already broken concrete...digging down to the bottom of the stairs and then make the decision to either reseat the steps I have, or replace them if they are broken. Set the steps more solidly than before, repack the dirt and get the whole thing ready to repour concrete.
I guess Im looking for ideas, thoughts, or reasons to continue/stop this current plan.
Added a couple pics in case it helps.
