remodel pool

kris56January 5, 2013

Hi everyone!

Have a really old pool (early 70's) in a house I just purchased that needs resurfacing badly. Seeing that needs to be done am geared toward bringing the whole thing up to date and wondering if it is possible to make a traditional pool into an infinity pool. The east end of the pool overlooks a canal and I think it would be kind of cool. Anyone done this? Any idea of cost?

Post some pics of whats existing. It will help a lot.

This is the pool from the house looking out. Is not a large pool, but big enough to keep us cool. I think you can see pretty well the urgent need for resurfacing.

Thanks Scott!

Too close to the water to make it an infinity edge. You have to remove the existing pool and put in a new one. That would be a lot to ask.

New tile and plaster are easy enough though.

Thanks Scott!

The pic is a little deceiving, probably about 25 feet from lanai to the sea wall, but not interested in a complete tear out anyway. The cost would be prohibitive. Oh well, at least I asked and won't wonder. ;-)

Am going to get a couple proposals, both for the new tile and plaster and for new decking, too. See if I can't jazz it up a bit. I think with the new landscaping and lighting going in, plus the solar heating for the pool, it will make a world of difference.

Thanks again for your input. Much appreciated.
