Pool renovation

Hi everyone.I have just joined as I have a major pool project and would really appreciate some advice on what is possible.I am buying a house which has a swimming pool which as you will see from the photos is old and needs draining and a lot of maintenance. My biggest concern is that the edges are raised tiles which I think could be quite dangerous for my kids to fall from getting in and out of the pool. What I'd like to know is can anything be done with this? For example, could the height of the sides of the pool be lowered so they are level with the ground and there is no raised edge? Alternatively, would it be better to raise the height of the patio surrounding the pool?I also can't see any overflow which I notice on new pools. Would this be a problem?Apologies for all the questions but have no idea if it would be easier to renovate the existing pool or remove it completely. Any advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks. Claire

  • The time allotment to finish your pool rebuild venture truly relies upon the extent of work being performed. On the off chance that you want to supplant adapting, tile, and mortar, you can normally expect your swimming pool and hot tub redesign to be finished inside about fourteen days or less.

  • Claire, it is quite natural to be anxious and to raise doubts. When I bought my house few years back, I too had many doubts of the similar kind. The pool in the pic definitely needs lot of maintenance work.  As for the edges, I guess reducing the height is a good option since they reduce the area too. But there should be a logical progression ie the exit point from the house, the pool fence and the pool steps so that there is a continuity.  Raised edges may hamper your view for the rest of the ground. About raising the patio surrounding, check for the best practical solution. Try approaching custom pool builders like solda pools for pro advice.  But removing the existing pool is not a feasible idea rather go for renovation.  Waiting for your updates on pool renovation. Best wishes.

Aqua Genie

I have a real old Aqua Genie skimmer with a control valve.

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…
