Well I have a 30 year old muskin pool that finally died this winter. Cover let loose and sank into the pool. I believe it ripped the liner and bent up the walls. I'll know better in a few days when i rip her down.
The new pool will be a 24 ft all aluminum Esther Williams. I will use a hayward perflex 40 D.E filter and 1HP hayward powerflow pump along with a hayward 150,000 BTU heater and a chlorine doser.
I am going with the original pool store that sold and installed the first pool. It lasted 30 years with the original liner so its a no brainer for me.
They reccomended I use a dual main drain, and manifold system. They offered to help with the first winter close up for free. The main drains can be shut off while swimmers are in the pool which makes me feel a little better with kids.
The pool is 52 inches tall, so roughly 48 around the edges and the center will be 6 feet deep.
I just replaced my polaris cleaner and last summer so it is basically new.
Will be ripping ut the old wood deck as well. Time for an upgrade in size. Looking to build 12 ft by 12 ft, or 16 by 16 ft. Which ever i can get to look the best without sacrificing too much real estate.
Suggestions and tips would be greatly appreciated!!
I am ripping all the landscaping around and near the pool will start over from scratch since its very outdated!!! Some tree's have to go. I hate killing trees but the original home owner put pine trees too close together and gow too big, Plus they drop a ton of debris all over the yard. Bad enough I have to battle 2 full grown silver maples, a couple birch, and 9 foot tall privacy hedges. Probably plant a couple engineered mini flowering fruit trees in the old pines location.
Pics will come soon, Hope to have the pool built by late april, and deck finished in early may.
I will post pics of the old girl before I tear her down.
