help needed please!! pool re-model

sbb3bJune 5, 2011

We've just bought a house with a pool in major need of some fast help and are looking for a company/companies to do the following.

- re-surface with a pebble finish (pebble tec vs. Wet Edge)

- add in a tanning ledge and rock waterfall

- add gunite to shallow end (it's currently over 4 1/2 ft deep and we have three small children as well as a 5ft mommy that needs a TRUE shallow end to play in

- new overlay over existing aggregate decking (approx 1500sf)

Thanks for any help and suggestions you can give!

I would like to replace the non-working lights in our 24x40 L shaped inground vinyl liner pool. The lights that were in the pool at the time of construction were some of the original Sun-lites. Interested in replacing with some of the new LED lights but just not sure what to buy. The niches which seem pretty big, may not have been the niches that came with the sun-lites as they seem kind of large and as I recall, the sun-lites came out about the time our pool was under construction and the pool builder used a large stainless plate to adapt them. Sure could use some guidance to determine if any of the LEDs would fit the niches...haven't been able to find any info on the requirements for them. Thanks much! Don

sbb3b - pool remodel. Be prepared for the fact that a remodel of this proportion will cost you about 75 - 80% of the cost of a new pool. Having said that, you can certainly do all of the items you mentioned. With these changes, you may also want to change some of the equipment to make the pool operate more efficiently. You did not mention what you have currently. More details on your current pool would help price what you want, but rest assured your dream of remodeling is definitely doable.
