Sorry I know this is an old post but just wanted to mention something about the lifetime warranties. They are almost all to the original owner only. Just went through this on our house we just sold in the same area and confirmed it with the pool builders we got bids from for our new pool that this is standard practice in our area at least. Just an FYI because all I had remembered from when we purchased the pool was a lifetime warranty and I was glad I checked with our PB before telling the buyer it was covered.
Yes correct, our PB stated very clearly the lifetime warranty is only for the original owner.
