I am new to the site and have enjoyed reading and viewing all the helpful tips and beautiful pool pics. I bought a house with a pool 3 years ago and finally decided to remodel the backyard. What I got with my purchase was a DIY gone wild nightmare. There was patched concrete, pool tiles poorly installed on top of the previous tile and painted plaster that finally showed it's true colors or lack thereof. Oh yes, and a pond that doubled as a mosquito haven. After I figure out how the picture posting works here I'll show you my before and after.

Welcome to TFP!

We have many construction 'experts' here that can help you out, and I think there are even a couple pond guys, too, if you are still in need of any advice! Or maybe by this time, YOU have become the expert!! ;)
