Complete Pool/Patio Renovation

May be a dumb question but my 30 year old house has a 30 year old pool with original plaster, cage and concrete deck. We want to resurface the pool with pebble tec, build a new cage and lay down pavers. In what order should the work be done. Trying to coordinate three different contractors and not knowing where to start. Advice would be welcome.

  • Re-do your patio work first. Consider updating your pool piping as well. If your coping stone is in good shape, keep it. If it's questionable, consider replacement as well your tile.

    30 years is a pretty long run.

    On our newly constructed pools or renovations I prefer to plaster very last. All the demo work and any patio and perimeter work is completed first to prevent dust and debris from compromising the plaster finish.

    Also, once you remove the patio you must adhere to the current NEC codes in regards to bonding. That includes the structure, any ladder or rail escutcheons, diving board bases and very importantly the pool light's niches. A qualified electrician or a town electrical inspector can guide you.

    Consider changing your lights to 12V.

    • Thanks. That makes sense.

My issue is there is no plumbing schematics detailing how to connect the feed inside the skimmer through the control assembly and into the bottom of the hopper.  If anyone knows…
