I am buying a house with a pool - as the title says it has been turned off since 2000 however the pool room has been heated. It has been inspected by our realator's pool guy and he says for 2k he could get it up clean and re-streatch the liner in the corners. It has some algae in it currently however the water is clear. It is said to have been installed in 1986 and only be swam in 8 times. The woman who owned it was scared of the liability of having a pool when she rented rooms in her house. the pump equiptment are supposedly in "excellent" condition, and it is INSIDE with a REZNOR type heater in the pool room. We are on the verge of closing on the house and are going to buy it regardless of the pools condition, as the house is worth it. Any ideas of weather an old pump system thats "great" should be replace with a new more efficient one? How much to expect to pay per month for utility and chemical if I do ALL the work myself? Looks like I have some work to do. Here is a pic - sorry its so huge - I'll try and make it smaller.
SO... any advice?
how about that awesome cieling??!
